Acclaimed cookbook author Margaret Johnson is back just in time for Christmas with a collection of great new recipes. It’s Johnson’s tenth cookbook overall and ninth focusing on Irish cuisine. The book not only celebrates the festive holiday season, but introduces
readers to a little piece of Ireland. Christmas Flavors of Ireland “invites readers on a holiday tour of Ireland,” says Johnson, who often visits the
Emerald Isle to taste great recipes that are both old and new. Over the course of her travels, Johnson has learned and perfected hundreds of
great Irish recipes. Recipes from all over Ireland are featured in this book—there’s truly something for everyone. In the pages of this collection, readers will be introduced to everything from Spiced Beef Sandwiches to Mincemeat Tarts, from Roast Goose to Apple and Cranberry Crumble. Chef Wade Murphy, named “Best Chef in Munster, 2012,” contributed the foreword to the book. (Ambassador International; August 2013; $19.99)
