Product image for Forgotten Skills of Cooking

Darina Allen is the Julia Child of Ireland, and in this beautifully photographed cookbook she presents the simple techniques honed by home cooks in the European farmstead tradition. From foraged greens to homemade cheese to butchery, these recipes feel both fresh and accessible. Scattered throughout are Allen’s personal asides, with both stories and tips. As the head of Ireland’s premier cooking school and Slow Food movement, you can be sure the recipes will work.
