For immediate release: Acclaimed cookbook author Margaret Johnson is back just in time for Christmas with a collection of great new recipes. More than 90 authentic dishes fill the beautiful pages of Christmas Flavors of Ireland: Celebrating the Festive Season (Ambassador International; August 2013; $19.99). It’s Johnson’s tenth cookbook overall and ninth focusing on Irish cuisine.
The book not only celebrates the festive holiday season, but introduces readers to a little piece of Ireland. Christmas Flavors of Ireland “invites readers on a holiday tour of Ireland,” says Johnson, who often visits the Emerald Isle to taste great recipes that are both old and new. Over the course of her travels, Johnson has learned and perfected hundreds of great Irish recipes.
Recipes from all over Ireland are featured in this book—there’s truly something for everyone. In the pages of this collection, readers will be introduced to everything from Spiced Beef Sandwiches to Mincemeat Tarts, from Roast Goose to Apple and Cranberry Crumble. Chef Wade Murphy, named “Best Chef in Munster, 2012,” contributed the foreword to the book.
Johnson is a frequent contributor to Intermezzo Magazine, irishabroad.com, and has served as travel editor for House Magazine. She’s shared her love of food and drink at Irish cultural events, food festivals and even on cruise ships. Learn more at MargaretMJohnson.com and IrishCook.com.
