    Review by Jen Delyth
    " A mouthwatering read.. that brings the flavors and culture of the Celtic Lands to life on your table"

    "I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Eric W. McBride on a chilly evening at an Irish Music Festival. Eric came to our camp, with bowls of the best soup - I think it was Leek and Potato, but it seemed like food of the Gods... with some subtle herbs and the cream and butter, probably some white wine, and maybe some bacon... It was a more decadant than I usually make the humble meal, but so much better! He is a great cook!

    Eric has 30 years experience as a chef, and is passionate about Celtic Food and Culture. He also is educated in Celtic History and Literature, and has a unique knowledge of Celtic Cuisine."
    Eric has written several cook books featuring recipes from the Celtic Lands - which are well researched "traditional" recipes - to which he has added some elegant touches of his own. Eric enjoys the whiskey, cream and butter - which add tasty refinement to the food experience of the Celtic Countries...
    The recipes are well written, and easy to follow, and delicious!
    There are also charming inserts of culture and poetry, which add to the culinary cultural experience!

    Sample recipes in this book include:
    Soups & Salads - "Cowl Cennin (Leek Soup)"
    Breads & Scones -"Bara Brith (speckled bread)"
    Appetizers - "Manx Cheesy Croquettes"
    Vegetables - "Creamy Leek Cheesy Tart"
    Seafood - "Chunky cod w/ Welsh Rarebit Topping"
    Meats - "Pastai Gig Oen (Welsh Lamp Pie)"
    Deserts - Tarten Riwbob (Rhubarb Tart)"

    EXCERPT from recipe for "Isle of Manx Cottage Chicken" "... Place the chicken on a baking rack and season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a suce pan, then add in honey, whisky, and sage, whisking together vigorously......"
    (This makes me quite hungry just writing this!)
