`The New Irish Table' and Cullen's `Elegant Irish Cooking' complement one another pretty well, as they both present recipes from modern Irish hospitality centers. The difference is that where Johnson is covering pubs and `bed and breakfast' style eateries, Cullen is covering dishes from Michelin one and two star restaurants in Ireland, as well as many of his own creations as a working chef, before he took up teaching at Boston University.
Between these two featured books, Johnson's Desserts book is a much more valuable addition to your cookbook collection, as it includes a lot of fancy and holiday desserts which I have not seen in any other good book on Irish cooking. The best thing about this book and its companion is that like a lot of Chronicle Books, it seems to be on a fast track to the Bargain Book table, both real and on-line.Read more ›
An introduction explains Ms. Johnson's Irish heritage and her first trip to Ireland in 1984. Food, she explained was the last thing on her mind, however, in subsequent visits, a culinary revolution had ensued, and the entire country was clamoring for traditional foods served in exciting new ways.
Ireland has always had an abundance of the world's finest dairy products, meats and fish, but the food suffered from poor cooking and poor presentation. That began to change in the early eighties. Myrtle Allen was a pioneer in the Irish Country House B&B trade with an emphasis on fresh, local food. Since then, superb cuisine has taken the country by storm. In this colorful volume, Ms. Johnson offers recipes to bring Ireland to your own home with staples such as Colcannon, the potato and cabbage treat, to brown bread creme brulee to smoked salmon. Many of the dishes use Farmhouse cheeses. One I'm particularly interested to try is a potato pancake with Cashel Blue.
The book covers appetizers, starters, meats and fish, side dishes and sweets. You'll find recipes using black pudding and pork belly, but also wonderful roast breast of duck and lamb shanks.
The photography is superb, both for the dishes and the scenery. Apparently Ms. Johnson has tastes similar to me as many of the photos are of places I've been, restaurants where I've eaten (The Farm Gate in Midleton, County Cork and McDonagh's in Galway.)
While the emphasis is on the foods of West Cork, there are also recipes from other regions including Northern Ireland.Read more ›
The cookbook is a good cross section of recipes with small bites, starters, main courses, side dishes, and sweets. It also includes interesting sidebars about pairing wine with Irish cheeses, Irish markets, etc. Basically these sections are great for anyone who wants to understand more of the story behind the ingredients and become more familiar with Ireland's cuisine.
Although the recipes I have tried thus far have all been good (the Lamb Cutlets with Honey, Apricot, and Tarragon Sauce; Potato, Parsnip, and Apple Puree, and Guinness Brownies have been among the most memorable) I have a few quibbles with this cookbook.
The first is that there are many instances in which the introductions to the recipes and instructions themselves could be clearer or more thorough in order to ensure success with the recipes. The guinness brownies were the clearest example for me. Johnson gives no indication of what the final texture will be so when the brownies come out VERY fudgy and almost molten its hard to tell if that is the intent or if they should be baked longer.Read more ›
