The New Irish Table: Recipes from Ireland's Top Chefs
by Leslie Conron Carola
ISBN: 978-1-623-54524-6

The New Irish Table is both a tribute to and a celebration of the island of Ireland and the exceptional contemporary culinary culture. Ireland today is a paradise for epicures.

The chefs included in this book, considered great ambassadors for Ireland by Tourism Ireland—Darina Allen, Martin Bealin, Derry Clark, Ultan Cooke, Kevin Dundon, Catherine Fulvio, Neven Maguire, Noel McMeel, Ian Orr, Tim O'Sullivan—are ten of the finest chefs in the country who have transformed the culinary landscape of Ireland with their refreshingly light treatment of fine ingredients selected from the miles of farmland and surrounding sea, lakes, and plentiful rivers that shape the land.

Organized by province—Leinster, Munster, Connacht, and Ulster—more than 80 recipes, with more than 175 full-color photographs of food and landscape, and sidebars on artisanal food producers take us on a culinary journey circling the island from Dublin to Wexford to Cork, Kerry, Galway and on to Northern Ireland to witness the breadth of this natural, seasonal, farm-to-fork movement.

Ireland today is a food-lover's choice.
