    I'm giving this 3 stars as a cookbook, not as a cuisine book. The recipes are all clear, concise, and easy to follow and that's really what a cookbook should be rated on. Irish cuisine isn't much. I hate to say it. Being Irish and growing up with my Irish relatives in Connecticut, the only decent Irish food I can remember eating is my Aunt Mary's Irish Bread (I've got the original recipe in her own handwriting and for some reason my mother saw fit to write all over it before she sent it).

Most Irish soda bread is equally good, but nothing brings it back to me like a piece made from Aunt Mary's recipe along with some Irish butter and a cup of "Irish tea" which was nothing more than Twinings Breakfast tea with milk and a lot of sugar. So, anyway, a good, solid cookbook on a cuisine that's not too good.

    While the device of using Kinky as the narrator for the tales of Dr. O'Reilly and his eccentricities, this is a cookbook that really does not lend itself to the general public. The measurements needed for the ingredients will typically have one or two that need to be awkwardly converted by using a chart in the front of the book. In addition, the book contains about four pages of randomly selected colorful pictures in the middle of the book.

In addition, the book contains about four pages of randomly selected colorful pictures in the middle of the book. I found two recipes (strawberry or raspberry ice cream and cheese straws) that looked to be inviting enough to try. The one feature that I did enjoy was the fact that Kinky had a tip for every recipe.

    I confess I have not read the Irish Country series by Patrick Taylor and as such I didn't understand the stories published within the cookbook. I did, however, enjoy the look at Ireland you got in the introduction to each of the types of dish - fishy starters, bread, mains and so on. I also liked Kinkey's notes in the recipes. I do that to my own cookbooks - add comments about what I liked or didn't like or what I would add or take away. Kinkey's comments offered tips, additions and more.

    What a wonderful cookbook! Not only does it have some great recipes that I want to try right away, but it's got stories that go along with the Irish Country series that Patrick Taylor writes. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and it's a wonderful addition to my huge cookbook collection.

    Such a wonderful cookbook! I love the recipes, they are well written & easy to follow. The background notes on the recipes are a great bonus. I have enjoyed all of Mr. Taylor's Irish Country books. This is a perfect addition to the series. The short stories are a delight to read.

    I liked reading the recipes. Tried a few. Still make Cottage Pie with Champ. My family loves it. That said, I've read all his Irish Country books and the cookbook is a compilation of all the recipes that were shared in the books, so I had seen them all before just not all together.

    This was a nice collection of pretty basic recipes that a person would be able to make during the week. Lots of recipes with potatoes and Guinness in them so that's a bonus. Included are some cute typical Irish short stories.

    This was a very big cookbook--lots of recipes--and some looking very delicious. Thank you, Kinky! But the wonderful part of this book is that each section contains a short story about the good Doctors and their village and their patients. A really enjoyable bonus.

    My favorite Irish series has put some recipes from the books into a cookbook and it is wonderful. A few short stories are included. Can't wait to make some of these recipes.

    If you love the Irish Country series, O'Reilly and Kinky, you'll be very happy with the cookbook. The recipes have been professionally rewritten so they have consistent instructions.

    I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads Giveaways. Thank you. This is a great cookbook with a fantastic variety of recipes. The recipes are great! Very authentic and well researched. If you like traditional irish food, you'll like this book for sure! As a personal preference, I wish there were more pictures. I can't wait to make some of these recipes.

    The recipes in the majority of this book are not traditionally Irish, so if you came for that reason, you are going to be disappointed. I tried the roast potatoes which do not disappoint at all; so good you would want to make them for every meal, if they weren't so time consuming that is. I also tried to make the brownie in the mug, which was a complete failure. I honestly don't know why it was included in this cookbook in the first place because that is quite a common online recipe that you wil The recipes in the majority of this book are not traditionally Irish, so if you came for that reason, you are going to be disappointed.

I also tried to make the brownie in the mug, which was a complete failure. I honestly don't know why it was included in this cookbook in the first place because that is quite a common online recipe that you will find literally any where. Then I tried my hand at the butternut squash soup recipe. It took a LOT of time just preparing the squash to be roasted first, then to peel the skins off after roasting them. It tastes fine, but I couldn't get past the texture (like pureed baby food which is off putting to say the least). The more traditional Irish recipes were standard and fine, but they didn't blow my socks off or anything. In my opinion, just rent it from your local library like I did, try the recipes that interest you and then return it.
