In an age when foods come highly processed, and ever more people suffer from food allergies and intolerances, interest in local and organic foods and healthful eating is skyrocketing. This is where Living off the Land in West Ireland comes in. The Connemara region of Ireland is one of the country’s most picturesque areas. Oscar Wilde once called it “a savage beauty.” With its rugged hills, post-card-pretty heaths and moors, and rocky western coastline, the region boasts a variety of striking vistas. Here it is still possible to live in harmony with nature, tapping the natural resources and native produce that the land offers up. Living off the Land in West Ireland takes you to Screebe House, an historic manor in western Ireland famous for its hospitality, comfort, and exquisite cuisine. The book shows how you can use local products to create outstanding dishes with a modicum of cooking skill, along with classics like a full Irish breakfast and afternoon scones. Recipes and special sections teach you how to prepare and cook fish, shellfish, and lamb chops and introduce you to Irish cheese. Breathtaking landscape photography from the region rounds out the book perfectly and sweeps you away on the trip of a lifetime to the western coast of Ireland.
