Some of the recipes are just simple basic food, others offering added ingredients to enhance the flavours or spice up the ordinary. The recipes gathered from many influences, including old family recipes, souvenirs from exotic places and shared experiences of friendships and memories. Apart from the recipes, it has other ingredients, beautiful reproductions of original paintings by Irish Artists, Tom Ryan, Patrick Cahill and Olivia Hayes. Many of the recipes have been tried out and some photographed by the ‘enthusiasts’ (ourselves!). There is something for everyone, ranging across all culinary abilities and the recipes we have tried are delicious.
The book is beautifully gift boxed and includes a Rite Ingredients shopping bag.
