My Irish Table by Cathal Armstrong and David Hagedorn

myirishtableThe debut cookbook from Cathal Armstrong and David Hagedorn featuring 130 recipes showcasing modern Irish fare, along with stories about Armstrong’s journey from Dublin to Washington, DC, and becoming an internationally recognized four-star chef, the owner of seven successful food and drink establishments, and a leader in the sustainable-food movement.

Often misunderstood, Irish cuisine is undergoing a renaissance as Ireland’s position of influence on the world stage grows, and more Irish chefs look to their homeland for inspiration. In My Irish Table, Armstrong shares a delicious collection of recipes that combines the simple, honest foods of his Irish upbringing with the classic French cooking techniques he learned as a young chef. With its moderate climate and amazing food resources, the Emerald Isle boasts beautiful produce, quality dairy, plentiful seafood, and grass-fed meats–all of which inspire Armstrong’s cooking and the connection between food and the environment reflected in his work.
