Biddy White Lennon brings out the real flavour of Ireland in this new cookbook series. One of Ireland's best-known food writers, she presents recipes from around the country featuring the finest and the favourites of traditional Irish cooking.

From starters to puddings, you will find a delicious selection of recipes using the best of Irish ingredients: succulent salmon, creamy cheeses, nutty brown flour. Choose from Bantry Bay mussels, Dublin Coddle, Kerry apple cakes, traditional fruity barm brack -- the Hallowe'en favourite -- Guinness stew, Baileys cheesecake and of course the famous Irish Coffee.

The book also contains related anecdotes, around the recipes, on Irish folklore and legends. All the recipes include metric, imperial and US measurements.

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.

'Three well-planned and pleasant little resources for the kitchen, all helpfully devoting one page to each recipe, with a background note, ingredients and method ... substantial collections of good recipes to which you will find yourself turning much more often than to the extravagant and showy cookbooks with their glistening colour photos and stylish spoofery.'
