Nine Bean Rows is a boutique Irish publishing house for tastemakers and storytellers.

We believe that there are two things that connect absolutely everyone, everywhere: food and stories. When we share our food, we are also sharing our story. Our aim is to move the needle forward on the story of Ireland’s modern and diverse food culture.

Paradiso by Denis Cotter

When Denis Cotter opened Paradiso in Cork City in 1993, he wanted to create an exciting, modern, vegetable-based cuisine. Thirty years later, Paradiso has become a beloved part of Cork’s food culture.

This collection of recipes will show you how to produce dishes that can be served alone or incorporated into a series of courses. The secret to many of these dishes is the core elements that form the backbone of the restaurant kitchen, the things that deliver concentrated flavours and textures. By incorporating these building blocks into your own repertoire, you can bring a touch of Paradiso to anything you cook.


The Gathered Table

Home means many things. It’s a place for family, friends and solitude. It’s a safe haven and a retreat. It provides shelter, security and independence. And for those who have lived without a home, it means everything.

The Gathered Table: A Taste of Home is a collection of 55 recipes from across Ireland’s food world. Bakers and butchers, farmers and food champions, producers, shopkeepers and chefs have shared their most cherished recipes, all for a good cause: all proceeds from the book will go to the Peter McVerry Trust, the national housing and homelessness charity whose work is needed now more than ever.

'The purpose of a cookbook is one and unmistakeable. Its object can conceivably be no other than to increase the happiness of mankind.'
