Books with Irish and Celtic Recipes


Celtic Folklore Cooking
Joanne Asala brings you time-honored recipes from many different Celtic lands, from Ireland and Scotland to Wales and England - and tells you which recipes are best suited for certain times of the year and specific traditional Celtic festivals. If you want a truly special and unique cookbook that will help you bring centuries of Celtic tradition alive right in your own kitchen, buy Celtic Folklore Cooking.


Classic Irish Recipes
This handy little book is one of the best easy recipe resources I found. It is simply a treasure-trove of of easy Irish recipes, with something to suit everyone's tastes. You also get very clear directions that are easy to follow. Priced much less than most cookbooks in print, this is a great easy recipe resource you shouldn't miss.


The Best of Irish Breads and Baking
This is an indispensible addition to any Irish cook's collection. The author, Georgina Campbell, includes a delightful history of the Irish breadmaking tradition.

In addition to the traditional Irish bread recipe, she includes old favorites such as Irish whiskey cake as well as more unusual treats such as Ballylickey Yummy Cake and Ballymaloe Walnut Meringue.

An especially handy section of the book is called "Festive Fares". This section has recipes for festive occasions such as Halloween, Christmas, Easter and, of course, traditional Irish weddings.


The Scottish-Irish Pub and Hearth Cookbook:
Recipes and Lore from Celtic Kitchens

Kay Shaw Nelson's book is a wonderfully easy recipe resource for everyone who wants to give their families a taste of their Celtic heritage. It's full of easy recipes to make the most warm and satisfying meals you ever tasted. If you want a taste of authentic Celtic "pub-grub" that will really bring friends and family together, then this is the book for you.
