I first met Noel McMeel several years ago in New York as one of the Irish chefs invited to represent the very best of the new culinary brilliance that is abundant throughout Northern Ireland today and he so kindly submitted a recipe to the Shamrock and Peach cook book. To my absolute honor and surprise I was given the opportunity to cook with Noel 2 years ago as a guest of Tourism Ireland at the Atlanta Highland Games. Noel was there helping me promote the pre sale of my cook book one month prior to its official launch, and his support and affirmation truly meant the world to me. Apart from my own family there are few people who I regard more highly than Noel McMeel and now it’s my turn to tell you all about his new and highly acclaimed book the Irish pantry!
The theme of Noel’s book is about feeding the ones you love and as you flick through each page and read the story description featuring every recipe you can feel the warmth and love. Please do not feel intimidated about cooking the recipes from a chef who has cooked for the President of the United States and catered Paul McCartney’s wedding. The recipes are all easy to make and best of all they work for the whole family to enjoy. The photography and images of Ireland are stunning and makes me so proud to be Irish and do what I do. It’s time for Irish food to take its rightful place on the world’s culinary food stage and few books tell our countries story better than the Irish pantry. If you love good wholesome food and Irish culture you will be inspired by the recipes created by Noel and his new cook book. The Irish pantry is a classic and the quality of book that will be passed down generation to generation.
The book is available on-line now on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble just hot off the press so please order today and as always enjoy the journey!
