The Irish Cookbook by Jp McMahon draws deep on Ireland’s history, with recipes for potato farls, lamb stew and soda bread, but it also brings things thoroughly up-to-date, with haute cuisine techniques applied to Irish ingredients and flavour combinations. 

So, it seems apt that McMahon launched this new title last night in Hen’s Teeth, a contemporary gallery, diner and design store in Dublin’s Blackpitts district.
