I’m slowly moving my food posts from my blogspirit blog to this blog. And since I posted an outside link for Catholic Cuisine, I thought I’d celebrate the (re)launching of my food blog by giving away a cookbook. (Although I’m not promising lots of posts here, as I do a lot of posting at Catholic Cuisine for food ideas.)
I found an extra copy of The Festive Food of Ireland by Darina Allen, the copyright is 1992. My other copy I bought in Ireland when I visited around on my 30th birthday. The book is delightful with a flavor of true Irish recipes, traditions, and luscious photographs and illustrations. The festive days covered are:
St. Bridget’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day
St. Martin’s Eve
St. Stephen’s Day
The Twelfth Day of Christmas
It’s a slim but packed cookbook, delightful if you enjoy reading cookbooks, especially about Irish cooking. I wanted to send this book out before Hallowe’en and St. Martin’s Day as the Irish traditions are many for these days.
Leave a comment and share what foods (besides Halloween candy) you like to eat or make (or plan to) for Hallowe’en, All Saints All Souls, and/or Martinmas (November 11).
We’ll have a drawing of the winner on Saturday evening, October 18 (the feast of St. Luke) and announce the winner Sunday morning.
Thanks for stopping by!
