  • Yay my new Celtic Cookbook finally arrived!

    :boing: Celtic Cookbook: Traditional Recipes from 6 Celtic Lands by Helen Smith-Twiddy :boing:

    Here's the link for it on Amazon but you can also find it here on half.com for less. That's where I got mine for $9.99 It being shipped Media Mail from NY to Guam it took 6 weeks to arrive.

    This book is out of print and gets great reviews. It has recipes from Brittany, Cornwall, Ireland, Isle of Man, Scotland & Wales. Each section is divided by entrée and then the recipes are further separated according to the loaction.

    I can't wait to try some of these out, well except for cooking Ox tail. lol

          My father loves oxtail soup and knows how to cook (and eat!) a pigs head. They wasted no part of the animal in his house.

          Looks like a great book!

                Oxtails aren't only Irish, the Caribbeans are big fans of it as well. You can find them in almost any supermarkets that cater to Latinos/Caribes/South Americans.

                Don't be put off by trying the oxtails Seapearls, they're actually quite delicious. I love oxtail stew.

                  Yeah not sure I'd be able to find them in the Asian Pacifc if I wanted to eat them. Plus we don't eat beef anymore, if we do it's a rare occasion if I want to make an authentic dish and not alter the recipe to make it healthier.

                        Oxtail is very common, used mostly to make stocks and soups / stews. It is a chunk of sliced bone with a large bit of marrow in it, which is used for flavoring. I am not sure if the marrow is actually eaten, some cultures may eat it, I'm not sure. Jamaicans loooove their Oxtail, and it's popular because it's cheap.

                            Does anyone know if Shepards Pie may go by another name? I don't seem to see it in the book and it's a recipe I figured would be in there. I'll have to look it up online I guess. My husband had it last summer at an Irish pub called Nine Fine Irishmen while we were at the NY NY casino in Las Vegas last summer. Wow the food in that place was good, I had a dish called Celtic Chicken. For appetizer we had their Sausage pail and some beer, wow my cider ale was good. You must eat there if you ever run across this pub.

                              I think oxtail is used in most cultures that eat beef. I've used it for stews and stock myself. Nothing to waste if you can help it!
