Coming Home To Cook

cover3Coming Home to CookVegetarian Recipes Inspired by the Organic Gardens of Ireland

I spent the summer of 2007 in the Burren, in the west of County Clare, Ireland. I
was at once mesmerized by the wildflowers, the rocks, the
history that lives in
every field and on every roadside,  the warmth of the people and the traditional
tunes that fill the air. I managed an organic vegetarian tearooms and met wonderful people from all over the world who have created small businesses in food production.
Organic vegetable farmers, herbalists, bakers, cheese makers and beekeepers welcomed me.
All professional cooks at one time think about opening up their
own restaurant and writing a cookbook. I owned Mary’s Cafe in Nyack, NY in
the 1990’s, now it was time for my cookbook. It contains 60 “user friendly”
delicious vegetarian recipes, divided in to 4 sections: Soups, Salads, Meals
with side dishes
and breads and pastries. Many are gluten and dairy free.
I have included a conversion chart and explanantions of certain foods which makes this easy to use wherever you live.
There are beautiful color photographs that I took in Ireland and it wouldn’t be Irish without a good story. There’s even a love story!
