Joyce of Cooking, The (hardcover)
“Know me come eat with me” wrote James Joyce, and this book is the guide he might have written. The Joyce of Cooking aims to delight and amuse anyone who loves good food, drink, and conviviality. It’s all here in this Ulysses for your kitchen; authentically honest Celtic fare as well as imaginative Continental extensions, even vegetarian and fruitarian fantasies equal to the Joycean dream. This literary cookbook makes for a delicious reading even for a non-chef, and a suitable condiment for the more voracious Joyce reader. As for “Irish Gastronomology”- devotees of food, drink, Joyce, and all things Celtic will relish the fruits of the author’s hearty research.
