In Celtic Folklore Cooking author Joanne Asala reveals recipes she has gathered from journeying to the British Isles. She found the best traditional cooks in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Cornwall who center their menus today around the same simple foods that have fed the Celtic people for generations: fresh meats and fish, nutty grains, wild fruits, rich dairy cream and butter, and home-grown vegetables. More than 200 of their recipes are included in Celtic Folklore Cooking. But there's more!
Through the generations, the foods of the Celts have inspired a rich crop of proverbs, legends, and songs. Celtic Folklore Cooking combines the recipes with their folklore, resulting in a book that is valuable to Wiccans, chefs, and people interested in ancient traditions and folklore.
This book is as charming as a whitewashed cottage and cozy as tea and scones by the fire. Celtic Folklore Cooking will draw you into the culture, folkways, and character of the Celts, who have always lived close to the land and the changing of the seasons. This delightful book with fill your mind with joy and your stomach with tasty food. Get a copy today.

And sandwiched in between it all, folk stories and history. I LOVE this book!! I can't help but highly recommend it. Enjoy!!
I am allergic to yeast I was delighted to discover a book with bread recipes that do not contain yeast, I have since learnt that, in the past, nobody used yeast in bread, it is actually an inferior mass-production method to use yeast to make bread rise.
After buying the book, I was astounded to see so many wonderful references to Celtic heritage. It was wonderful.
The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I believe some full colour photos of the meals would be nice ... although, at the same time, might detract from the wonderful country feel of the book.
I would say this is a very good present for anyone remotely interested in anything Celtic + cooking, it has a wonderful feel to it, warm, enchanting, entertaining you can actually browse through the little tidbits.
The first and more subtle influence is the effect of Celtic lore on the placing of our Christian holidays. Practically every single Christian and Secular holiday, including Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Carnavale / Marti Gras, Lent, and Advent can be traced to the mapping of Christian doctrine onto the pre-existing Celtic agricultural calendar. One can almost feel the palpable shadow of great Stonehenge, that early instrument for tracking that calendar, weighing on our imagination on Spring, Midsummer, Autumn, and Midwinter celebrations. While it is quite beyond the scope of this book and this review, one can wonder how the Celts in the damp north influenced the Greek and Roman based early Christianity, but it obviously did, in no small way.
The second great influence is more obvious today than it may have been for over a century.Read more ›
