Irish Cooking

Copyright Buck, 2010-.
Irish cooking, like other cuisines, is good year round, but especially popular this time of year, with Saint Patrick's Day falling on March 17.  If you're interested in Irish food but don't have a Saint Patrick's Day meal planned, look at some of our cookbooks for inspiration!

If every-day recipes are more your speed, check out Good Mood Food by Irish home cook Donal Skehan.  This self-described home cook/photographer/food writer has published a blog since 2007, and has since moved on to not only publishing two cookbooks, but also producing and hosting a hit cooking show in Ireland!

Donal also acts as a bit of a "food ambassador", not only representing Irish cooking at various events, but also appearing on international television!

UPDATE 3/16/2012:  Donal's segment is now up on the Today Show site at Celebrate St. Patty's with beef and Guinness stew

Please be advised that the TODAY show is an NBC network show, and is in no way affiliated with Hamden Public Library.  Also, the spelling of the holiday's nickname should be "St. Paddy's", not "St. Patty's".

Now that I think of it, Donal's not the only successful cookbook author who's also a food blogger.  What's some of your favorite food writing on the Internet?  Is it as good as the food writing Elisabeth highlighted in her last post?
