I strolled into London's Books for Cooks shop (the absolute best place on earth for talking about food, buying cookbooks and sampling some truly great food in the little cafe in the back). Had a chat with the chef, who was just beginning to ladle out some of her delicious Tomato, Lentil and Orange soup. I commented on the soup, saying it smelled fantastic. And she immediately pointed me in the direction of the Avoca Cafe Cookbook.
What a find. It's marvelous.
The recipes all sound great. And uncomplicated --- fresh, pure and freshly, purely innovative combinations. Highly recommended: Tomato, Celery and Apple Soup; Tomato, Lentil and Orange Soup; Soda Bread; the Potato and Rosemary salad; Potato and Celeriac Gratin and the Mediterranean Tart. Still many more recipes to go.
I LOVE this book.

I am an American that had been living in Dublin, Ireland for a year from April 99 - June 00. The Avoca Handweavers were just a few miles away. I frequented Avoca atleast once a week for tea and bisquits. The food is wonderful there. As I got ready to return back to the states - The Avoca Cafe Cookbook came out. It was my last purchase before returning home. It is a keepsake for me as I can now recreate my experiences of eating at the Cafe at home in the States. It is not only loaded with just about every recipe that you can eat at the Cafe but well presented with beautiful photos of the food and of Ireland. I would recommend this book to anyone who has experienced the beauty of Ireland and Avoca and anyone interested in just great food.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite cookbook 20 July 2009
I love cooking, and this is my favourite cookbook by far. Some of my favourite recipes are Nich's chicken curry which is great, the carrot cake is amazing and everyone loves it, the chicken and broccoli gratin is another amazing recipe, as is the beef and guiness stew. I am from N.Ireland and have been to the Avoca Cafe various times in Wicklow, and even though I'm living abroad its great to be able to have little luxuries with me such as my Avoca cookbook.

This recipe book is among the best you can find. It's split into soups, salads, fish and chicken, meat, vegetable mains, breads, tea time and desserts, relishes and sundries. Each chapter has outstanding recipes but seriously you'll find you want to try them all. We eat our family meals from this book and entertain with it. The results are always delicious. The recipes are fresh, no fuss, fail safe and guaranteed to get everyone asking for seconds! Our house favourites are the salmon and leek tart, chicken and broccoli gratin, beef perpperpot,lakeshore pork, mediterranean lasagne, banana bread and the Avoca scones. Hmmmm

i got this book as a gift at Christmas when I was home visiting family in Ireland. i have made so many recipes from it and all of them have been really yummy - i would recommend the meatballs, fruit tiramisu, lemon tart, tomato, celery and apple soup. i liked it so much that I am ordering a copy online to send to a friend.
oh yes and the curry recipe is the best - the sauce is great as a veggie curry sauce too!

5.0 out of 5 stars A mouthwatering read 29 Jun 2001
By A Customer
I accidentally chanced upon this book while I was spending the weekend in Ireland and having lunch (which, incidentally, was great) at the Avoca Cafe in Dublin. I couldn't help but buying the book after setting eyes on it. The recipes seem so interesting and appealing. They look simple to make, yet sound original. The soup and the salads sections are amazing!I love the fact that all the ingredients are fresh and readily available. I would recommend it to anybody who is interested in eating (and cooking)good, genuine food. It's truly brilliant!!!

The Avoca Cafes were initially started to provide somewhere for visitors to the Avoca Weavers in Wicklow to enjoy a cup of tea and slice of cake. They were so succesful that they are now dotted throughout Ireland. This is a book of recipes from the cafes. It is a bit like an Irish version of Cranks, with a large helping of wholefood. Although do not be fooled into thinking that this is just for veggies. It does contain a small number of meat recipes Many of the recipes are delicious, particularly such delights as sweet potato and lemongrass soup. My one disappointment is the relatively dated nature of some of the baking. I had hoped that nut roast had been consigned to the 90s. But otherwise a worthwhile addition to any cook's home library.
