Reviews about Recipes in this Book

  • Pan boxty

    • Leite's Culinaria

      The only way we can think to describe pan boxty? As hash browns’ answer fudgy brownies, with a crisp surface and a dense, moist but not greasy, almost but not quite gooey interior.

Publishers Text

Imbued with a passion to preserve the traditions of Irish cooking, Darina Allen has journeyed all over Ireland, researching and recording different recipes and regional dishes. From County Cork where she learnt from Joan Twomey how to cook apple cake in a bastible on an open fire, to Ballyheigue in County Kerry, where she collected bairneachs (limpets) off the rocks to make the traditional Good Friday Soup, to Granny Toye's vivid description of how to make the Boxty pancakes of her youth, Irish Traditional Cooking is a rich record of Ireland's wealth of culinary history. Ireland's strong tradition of farming, home baking, simple good food was based on what was readily available, with broths and soups, fish, game, and potato dishes all an essential part of traditional Irish cooking.
