Brian believes that tasty, healthy food based around local produce is something every family can enjoy through this collection of achievable, affordable and accessible recipes celebrating the best of Donegal’s warmth and traditions.
Brian McDermott has built a national reputation as a chef on one simple belief – that tasty, healthy food based around traditional recipes and local produce is something every family can make and enjoy. As one of twelve children growing up in Burt in County Donegal, the focal point of the family was always his mother’s kitchen table, and that childhood memory of the family coming together and connecting over her home cooking continues to inspire Brian as he shares his own passion for food with others. Whether it’s cooking freshly-caught mussels for the fishermen at Greencastle pier or sharing his skills with others at his cookery school, Brian loves to celebrate the best of his home county’s warmth and traditions.
Brian McDermott's Donegal Table is a cookbook featuring healthy, delicious meals for the whole family, grounded in local produce. Award-winning chef Brian McDermott showcases recipes based on tradition, such as Sunday's Finest Roast Lemon and Thyme Chicken, Wild Atlantic Way Fish Pie, My Garden Rhubarb Crumble, Black Pudding Dipping Fritters and much more.
