Cornucopia at home
Sorry, I had to do it, I had to mention christmas gifts, as this without doubt is one for that special someone in your life.
Especially if there are:
vegetarian….have any dietary needs or preferences….and of course they must like like cooking from scratch.
I’ll feature a recipe from each of the sections over the next short while, which are: soups, salads, mains, breads, desserts.
When living in Dublin in the 1990s, I worked in Cornucopia as a lowly Kitchen Porter, in 1995. It was a great place to work, great food to take home at the end of the day each day. I was surrounded by a crew of quirky characters. This was especialy the case with the younger members of staff, who were usually arty militant vegans or some other such tendency.
Like the restaurant, the book is great for yeast free, gluten free, vegan, sugar free etc without compromising on taste.
As it happens, they also have moved along quite nicely with the quadrant - Marc Michael’s organic farm in Wicklow is one of the many great pictures featured, as they source much of their seasonal veg from him.
So have a look for the book out there, or buy it here: here!
And watch out for the featured recipes as they appear over the next short while.
newsflash: Cornucopia at home has just been named Irish foodbook of the year at the Listowel food fair.
