Bread lies at the heart of the Irish baking tradition, and the range of breads, scones, tarts, cakes and biscuits still baked every day in Irish homes is truly enormous. Possibly the best known is brown bread - unique to every cook - the recipe often a closely guarded secret!

These sixty tempting recipes are a selection of the best from the tradition and include soda breads, potato and griddle breads, gur cake, porter cake, barm brack and Christmas cake, buttermilk scones, pancakes, puddings and oaten biscuits. They will delight visitors and Irish people alike. Details of customs, folklore and Irish regional food traditions provide a fascinating background to the recipes and forty charming illustrations complete the mix.

Biddy White Lennon was a noted cook and personality, familiar to many people as Maggie from The Riordans. She was a founder member and Chairwoman of the Irish Food Writers Guild as well as editor and food writer of Irish Home Diary and wrote regularly for Food and Wine Magazine.

As a judge on The Great Irish Bake-Off, Biddy displayed her passion for great food that can be cooked by ordinary people in their own homes. Biddy died in 2017.
