Bring a little Irish warmth into your kitchen, with more than 90 inspiring recipes. From the cosy kitchen of a tiny fisherman's cottage, on the salty shores of Ireland, comes this enchanting collection of recipes and stories. With their fresh approach to Irish cuisine, let firm friends Biddy and Kady lead you behind the half door. You'll want to curl up and get lost in their heartwarming tales of food and folk.

The classic fare from their childhood, made with local ingredients from their villages, inspired Biddy McLaughlin, journalist, and Kady O Connell, designer and photographer, to take pause from their busy lives. What has resulted is a truly remarkable patchwork of Irish history, emotion-filled interviews and authentic recipes that will nourish your soul. They'll bring new meaning to your understanding of Irish cooking, and a little magic of the Emerald Isle into your own kitchen.

Kady O Connell is an art director, food photographer and cookbook author. Her extensive experience in graphic design and photography has taken her all over the world, and she's now based in Sydney, Australia.

Brighid "Biddy" McLaughlin has been a story teller all her life. Born in Dublin, she is a self-taught artist who lives in Dalkey, the beautiful seaside village in south County Dublin. She works in her traditional cottage overlooking Dalkey Island and the sometimes treacherous stretch of water known as Dalkey Sound, where she fishes and rows her boat.
