What do chefs cook when they have friends and family around for dinner?
Trevis L. Gleason asks just that of the talents who have made Dingle a foodie hotspot. Many of these experts made the rounds of the world’s culinary centres before dropping anchor on the edge of Europe, and Trevis dishes up the curious backstories of the hard-working, hardplaying people who prepare some of the best food Ireland has to offer.
The irresistible three-course dinners for six blend everyday dining with sophisticated innovation. Reflecting on the classics, updating regional specialities, elevating family favourites and revelling in indulgences are all on the menu of this imaginative collection. But before you even get to the tempting recipes, you’ll be hooked by the charming tales of life, cooking and love of place.

A wonderful travelogue cookbook.

The food and scenic photography is truly inspiring.
