Our Irish Grannies’ Recipes is a charming little book featuring recipes submitted online and by mail from people across Ireland. It includes authentic recipes coming from Irish grannies, granddads, great aunts, and uncles, a tradition of comforting food carried across generations.
The recipes are divided into Snacks and Miscellany, Soups and Starters, Mains and Dinners, and Breads, Cakes, Desserts and Bisciuts. This is a small cookbook that packs a variety of wonderful traditional recipes. This is the first time I've come across a collection of Irish cooking, and I have bookmarked many recipes I'd like to try. Nanna's Chicken Soup, for example - easy, healthy, and delicious! I cannot ask more of a meal. How about Rachel’s Granny’s Simple Potato Soup, or Granny’s Northern Irish Stuffing? Guinness is my favorite beer but I've never used it for cooking - I am definitely making the Guinness beef stew. And those desserts sound heavenly. Mother's Pudding? Granny Sullivan's Mystery Steam Cake? Summer Strawberry Cream? Mmmm...
Our Irish Grannies' Recipes by Eoin Purcell came out in November, published by Sourcebooks.
