Sláinte: The Complete Guide to Irish Craft Beer and Cider by Caroline Hennessy and Kristin Jensen (New Island)
If you’re on this site, you’re well aware that there’s a revolution happening in Ireland. Craft beer and cider producers and enthusiasts are seeking to transform our drinking habits, shifting away from bland, anonymous products from some far-off factory towards locally produced drinks that are full of character and flavour.
With light-hearted expertise, Caroline Hennessy (of this parish and the award winning www.bibliocook.com) and Kristin Jensen (cookbook editor and blogger at edible-ireland.com) show you how a little knowledge will increase your enjoyment of properly made beer and cider and they introduce you to the personalities behind the bottles.
Savour it in its own right, match it with food to get the most out of what you’re drinking and eating and use it in your cooking, with recipes for dishes like beef, chorizo and ale stew or even double chocolate porter brownies.
