Renowned Cookbook Author Releases 11th Collection of Irish recipes
For immediate release: It goes without saying, Ireland is Margaret Johnson’s favorite place in the world. Her passion for the country and its cuisine jumps from the pages of her latest collection of recipes, Favorite Flavors of Ireland (Ambassador International; November 2015; $24.99, paperback). It’s Johnson’s eleventh cookbook overall and tenth focusing on Irish cuisine.
August 11, 1984: the date stamped in Margaret’s passport, marking her first trip the Emerald Isle. She’s since recorded 70 visits throughout three decades. “With each new visit, I grew to love Ireland more — the people, the landscape, the history, the folklore, the music, and the food,” writes Margaret. Her latest book, Favorite Flavors of Ireland, is a tribute to her 30 years of exploration of Ireland. It’s also a chance for this expert in Irish cuisine to answer the questions she’s asked nearly every day:
- “What’s your favorite Irish recipe?”
- “What’s your favorite place in Ireland?”
- “What’s your favorite time to visit?”
The book captures Ireland’s culinary beauty season-by-season, and includes more than 100 recipes. For example, in spring you’ll find specialties like Lamb with Port and Mint Sauce and Roasted Rhubarb Ice Cream. Summer features the classic Fish ‘n Chips with Mushy Peas as well as Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding with Blueberries. Autumn includes Grilled Oysters with Black Bacon and winter highlights warmers like Shepherd’s Pie, Glazed Holiday Ham and Traditional Christmas Pudding.

For immediate release: One of Europe’s fastest growing food destinations is getting fresh attention in the pages of a new Irish cookbook from author Margaret Johnson. More than 70 authentic recipes fill the beautiful pages of Flavors of Ireland: Celebrating Grand Places and Glorious Food (Ambassador International; February 2011; $19.99). It’s Johnson’s tenth cookbook overall and eighth focusing on Irish cuisine.
The book is part recipe collection, part travel guide and part history lesson. “Flavors of Ireland offers a unique look into the ingredients that shape the country’s cooking,” says Johnson, who has written hundreds of food and travel pieces for magazines around the world. “Ireland has a distinctive food culture thanks to its geography, climate and rich history.” Johnson will be leading two Flavors of Ireland tours to the Emerald Isle, one in May and a second trip in October.
Several of the country’s top chefs and notable residents contributed recipes for Flavors of Ireland. Potato-Apple-Butter Bake from the curator of the Cork Butter Museum and Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Tart from the chef at Dublin’s Ely Wine Bar are two of the highlights. Chef Noel McMeel, named best chef in Ulster in 2011, contributed the foreword to the book.

For immediate release: Judith McLoughlin is looking at southern cuisine through Irish eyes. Her new cookbook, The Shamrock and Peach: A Culinary Journey from the North of Ireland to the American South, (Ambassador International; November 2011; $29.99/hardcover) combines fresh produce of the South with age-old Irish techniques to create a new fusion that melds the best of both worlds: Georgia pecans in a traditionally Irish trout dish; peaches with an Ulster favorite, rhubarb; or whiskey flavors with Georgia-grown chicken.
Judith’s romance with hospitality and food began around the County Down dinner table of her grandmother. It was a time when the dinner table was the heart of a home, the life of the family. She still maintains a passion for farm-fresh, natural food, a love sparked in Ulster where the roaming hormone-free livestock eat lush green grass, fed by the rain-soaked Irish climate. She’s lived in Georgia for more than a decade, an area just as agriculturally rich as her homeland.
The Shamrock and Peach hits shelves in November, but Judith already shares her fusion regularly through cooking classes and demonstrations in the Atlanta area. She also exclusively imports and sells some of her favorite Irish products through her business, The Ulster Kitchen. Judith loves speaking on topics including:
- How she developed this unique fusion.
- The influence of Irish cooking in American kitchens.
- The culinary history of the Titanic.
One of the desserts served on the Titanic, which was built in Belfast near Judith’s home, is featured in The Shamrock and Peach. April 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s fateful maiden voyage.
This fresh take on southern cuisine will impress palates at dinner tables here and across the pond. Learn more at www.shamrockandpeach.com or email Alison Storm at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect with Judith.
