Product Description

Review

'A true and inspiring generosity has been created and sustained over more than two decades in Cornucopia, establishing this unique food destination as one of the iconic Dublin addresses. Cornucopia has fed its customers in many ways, giving us great food that speaks of the concerns of the world and its culinary cultures, and inflecting these concerns with the spirit of the city. Deirdre and the Cornucopia team have achieved something of true, enduring value and Cornucopia at home that achievement.'John McKenna, The Bridgestone Guides'Packed with recipes and detailed information on the ingredients and fuelled by the spirit of the restaurant it comes from Cornucopia at home will be a very useful reference for anyone wanting to create simple, tasty and healthy food at home.'Denis Cotter (Cafe Paradiso, Cork) author of Paradiso Seasons and Wild garlic, gooseberries A... and me'We can all feel privileged to read and use this special cookbook. It not only imparts the exquisite secrets that have been consistently enjoyed at Cornucopia, it also provides insight of how it all came about through Deirdre and Neil's love, dedicated tenacity and, thankfully, a bit of ignorance A...'Marc Michel, Farmer, Organic Life, Wicklow 'This book is the culmination of years of dedication, innovation, courage and commitment to pioneering the health benefits and enjoyment of fresh, naturally produced food. When food was less fashionable, Deirdre persisted with her vision and as a founding member of Good Food Ireland I congratulate her on sharing her passion and ideals for using fresh local artisan produce. We can all delight in cooking with Cornucopia at Home and bring the fruits and experiences of Deirdre and her team into our daily lives.'Margaret Jeffares, Good Food Ireland

Cornucopia at Home is a fantastic recipe book! I could not disagree more with the previous reviewer. Yes, it has a personal introduction explaining the origins of Cornucopia in Dublin and the lives of those who started it, but that's as much "waffle" (as the reviewer called it) as you are going to get in this book. The rest is probably one of the best recipe books I've ever seen and used!

For those who love Cornucopia in Dublin, they will find plenty of the yummy dishes that they serve: soups, salads, main courses, deserts... It is a must have for people with food allergies, as recipes come with plenty of advice on what each recipe contains, and how to alter the ingredients to make it suitable for each case.

The recipes are delicious and easy to make. The chickpea casserole, for instance, is ridiculously easy and so delicious you'll be delighted it comes in a recipe for four people. Also, the book is packed with suggestions on how can you create new recipes from that particular one you're reading. So, for every recipe fully explained, maybe there's four alternatives that you can try... which is extra recipes for free! Moreover, it comes with loads of small tips on how to improve your diet or even get your own sprouts!

There's only one thing I'll give the previous reviewer: the bedtime reading. I love flicking its pages before going to bed, looking at those lush pictures. Thinking of how I'm going to delight my guests (or myself!) with a new, lovely veggie meal gives me the best of dreams.

Format: Hardcover
`Cornucopia' is a famous and successful vegetarian restaurant at 19 Wicklow Street, Dublin, founded in January 1986 by Dierdre and (the now deceased) Neil McCafferty after they returned from years of working in the USA. In Boston, they gained inspiration for their idealistic vision of promoting a wholesome organic lifestyle and put it into action back in Dublin. Cornucopia is still doing well after 26 years, and we have eaten there several times.

`Cornucopia at Home' is a big 450-page hardcover volume of their tried-and-tested menu dishes, and the best vegetarian/organic cookbook I have ever used. The book was written after hundreds of customers over the years asked them to write and publish it, as they enjoyed eating there so much. Eleanor Heffernan writes that the book is "for people who like wholefood, health food and like to cook everything from scratch."

The book is very good for people with allergies or food intolerances, as each recipe is marked with a symbol for yeast-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, vegan, no nuts, etc. etc. The contents divide into:

* Soups

* Salads

* Main courses

* Breads

* Desserts

Each recipe is clearly explained and illustrated with fabulous photography. The text is written in a down-to-earth style with good-natured humour. If you have never cooked vegetarian food before, then follow the recipe advice in this book and you can't go wrong.

The production quality of the book is very good and though it might not be the cheapest cook book you ever buy, it's going to be one of the best.

Highly recommended without reservation.

I loved the chatty format of the book which detailed the history of the restaurant at the beginning although those who just wanted a recipe book might find it annoying. I also found the suggested variations useful especially the tips to make the recipes 'vegan'. To date I have only prepared a couple of recipes including the Garlic mayonnaise potato salad, which I enjoyed very much (I can't make enough of the toasted hazelnuts which are in this recipe as they are eaten by all as soon as they are ready). I prepared the recipe for homemade vegan mayonnaise to go with this and found that there was too much mayonnaise left over. The next time I make it, I will definitely cut down the quantity of mayonnaise prepared to just enough for the recipe.

The book is beautiful to look at with beautiful illustrations. It is not just a cookery book with recipes as throughout the various chapters there is quite a lot of useful information including in the bread chapter about different bread types, shelf-life etc. and much more.

This really is an excellent book. I have already tried a lot of the recipes and can vouch for the fact that they are easy to do and very tasty. I have banged on about how good it is so much that three of my friends have also brought a copy :)

Me and my friend were in Dublin for a short holiday when we discovered Cornucopia food. We ate there every day! Couldn't believe how good the food was, more so as we are not vegetarians/vegans. Now I'm the proud owner of their book and can confirm that ALL recipes work 100% and i do recommend it to everyone who likes eating healthy and feel good. Looking forward to their next cookery book already!

I love this cookbook, even for non-vegetarians the food is amazing, and the serving size generous. A must have for every vegetarian kitchen! The puddings are a bit odd in places, but the recipe for chocolate brownies is gorgeous, as is the recipe for chocolate torte (vegan cheesecake). Great if you just want to improve your intake of fruit and veg!
