Traditional Irish Cooking with Modern Twists

Graham Herterich is back with a follow-up to his debut cookbook, with a savoury spin this time.

Cook: Traditional Irish Cooking with Modern Twists is structured around the unique way we eat in Ireland, broken up into the five mealtimes of breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea and supper. There is also a chapter dedicated to pork and bacon, inspired by Graham's childhood growing up over the family butcher shop.

Graham flips the script on favourites like bacon and cabbage to turn it into cabbage and bacon, while Irish stew gets reimagined as a lamb tagine. Beloved Irish classics such as the ‘mammy salad’, a chicken fillet roll and our classic combo of lasagne, coleslaw and chips all feature alongside modern versions updated with the flavours and ingredients available to us now. 

Whether it’s a bowl of coddle or a spice bag, Cook shows that traditional and modern Irish cooking isn’t defined by what it is, but rather by what it does: it nurtures us, warms us and makes us who we are.
