Clodagh's Irish Kitchen: A Fresh Take on Traditional Flavours
As Clodagh says, 'Life happens over a simmering pot in Ireland'. With such a rich culinary history, it's understandable that internationally recognised dishes such as Colcannon and Soda Bread should form a part of the country's identity. But there is far more to discover about Irish cooking. Let Clodagh guide you through this tempting collection of 150 recipes, as she takes her favourite dishes and brings them up to date with her own unique twist. Potato Dumplings are reinvigorated with a Spicy Cashel Blue Sauce, whilst the famous Irish Breakfast is given a new lease of life as a Tortilla. With everything from soups and stews to preserves and sophisticated dinner party dishes inspired by those she cooked for the Taoiseach of Ireland, Clodagh's Irish Kitchen is a mouthwatering adventure around this sumptuous cuisine.
