Ah, Ireland. Renowned the world over for the great wealth of its cuisine. Sorry, that should have read 'the great wealth of its politicians'. But really, in Ireland you can't beat eating. Well, okay, you can -- there's drinking -- and of course, there's sex. So it's just as well that this book combines all three in a heady stew, with a gansey-load of uniquely Irish recipes you'll remember from your youth, along with some of Ireland's favourite ingredients of religion, politics and cynicism thrown in for good measure.Bon appetit! Or as they say in Termonfeckin, get that into yer gob, ye dirty little bowsie ye!
