And for Mains...
And for Mains... Recipes, stories and pints with an Irish Butcher and a Chef, this delicious book hails from two current heroes of Irish Food, Gaz Smith & Rick Higgins. Gaz Smith is chef proprietor of Michael’s restaurant & Little Mikes. Rick Higgins is a fourth generation butcher, who runs Higgins Family Butchers in Sutton. The success of Michael’s restaurant has been Gaz’s ability to get everyone else as excited as he is about his food and hospitality and it comes across in spades here, it’s a book that will definitely inspire you.
Full of life and energy, that enthusiasm for what they do, and a sense of humour that just leaps off the page at you. There’s a recipe for a hand selected bowl of petit fours that’s a mix of galaxy minstrels, Strawberry Jellies & Jelly Snakes, a pub crawl in the middle with advice on how to spot a place that will serve a good pint of Guinness and lots of photos of the pair of them brandishing cleavers, but along side the messing, there are excellent easy to follow recipes that focus on superb Irish ingredients treated with love and reverence and a lot of butter.
The first book from new Irish boutique publishers Nine Bean Row, it’s a beautifully illustrated and lovingly produced tome that does justice to the authors vision and is definitely a thing you’ll want to own.
