Description
To many, Imen McDonnell's life reads as a modern fairytale. Happily going about her business as a young American woman embarking upon a successful career in broadcast production, she was introduced to a dashing Irish farmer and fell instantly in love. In short order, Imen found herself leaving behind her work, her country, and her family and friends to start a life from scratch on a centuries-old family dairy farm in County Limerick.
The Farmette Cookbook is more than just a cookbook, it's a chronicle of Imen's journey, embracing her new identity as a farmer's wife, discovering new tastes, feeding her family, and finding her way around the Irish kitchen, where traditional cooking trumps quick and convenient. Here, Imen shares her tried-and-true classic Irish recipes, infused with a contemporary American twist: from her Best Brown Bread, Fish-'n'-Chip Pie, and Richard's "Proper" Irish Coffee to Farmhouse Buttermilk Beignets, Hot-Smoked Burren Salmon Tacos, and an Irish Hedgerow Shandy. Highlighting farmhouse skills (such as butter and cheese making) and the use of local, wholesome ingredients, Imen invites us into her kitchen and her world, through stories and recipes, for a taste of the Irish countryside.

      • bioText: Imen McDonnell is a contributing food and lifestyle writer and photographer for Cond頎ast Traveler, The Irish Farmers Journal, and Irish Country Magazine. In a former life, she spent her days working in broadcast production while living in New York, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles. She now resides with her husband and son on their family farm in rural Ireland and shares stories of farm life and food on her popular blog, Farmette.ie. Imen's modern Irish recipes have been featured in The New York Times, The Irish Times, The Sunday Times (UK), The Los Angeles Times, Saveur Magazine, and more. When she is not cooking, writing, weeding, or photographing, you'll find Imen in the farmyard with her husband and son, milking cows, feeding calves and chickens, or just plain loving up their two donkeys and very amusing Airedale terrier, Teddy.

        Starred review from March 15, 2016

        It's a familiar tale in food nonfiction and cookbooks: girl meets farmer, falls in love, and trades city life for farm life (e.g., Kristin Kimball's The Dirty Life, Ree Drummond's The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Nancy Singleton Hachisu's Japanese Farm Food). In this book, food writer and photographer McDonnell chronicles her own rural romance, which landed her on a centuries-old farm in the Irish countryside. Wisely, she devotes most of this lush and gorgeously photographed cookbook to elegant country cooking and delicious recipes. Packed with traditional and contemporary dishes such as Irish farmer cheese souffle, St. Patrick's Day bacon and cabbage potstickers, and smoky dark chocolate porter cake, this book contains a compelling blend of delicious recipes, including those for dairy products (e.g., homemade butter, ricotta, creme fraiche, condensed milk), preserves, and foraged ingredients. VERDICT An outstanding debut, with just the right amount of sentimentality.
