Witty, erudite and endlessly knowledgable about food, Irish chef Rory O'Connell returns with a collection of new recipes and helpful techniques for the holiday season. Rory prepares elegant dishes for cooks who want something a little different, including potted lobster, duck leg curry with Indian spieces and apple cider vinegar, a surprising Irish salad and apple Betty with chocolate and mincemeat.
Rory O'Connell is a teacher, cookbook author and co-founder of Ballymaloe Cookery School. Rory served as head chef of Ballymaloe House for 10 years, where he was twice awarded the prestigious title of Ireland’s Chef of the Year.
