Clifford & Son
Casemate has NO minimum
In this lavishly illustrated cookery book, food writer Joe McNamee reintroduces Michael Clifford to a new audience, remembering him for the people who once ate his food and establishing his place in the history of modern Irish cuisine. McNamee examines his Michelin-starred restaurants and looks at how they slotted into the Irish culinary landscape of the time, sowing seeds that bear fruit to this day in the modern Irish restaurant industry. McNamee then moves on to his son, Peter, who has made it part of his mission to promote and develop his father’s culinary legacy. Peter has developed at an impossibly young age into a serious chef in his own right and is already making a name for himself with his interpretation of a cuisine which he first learned working alongside his father in the kitchen from the age of twelve. He is currently the Head Chef at Pepper Brasserie and Grill in Clontarf. The bulk of the book consists of more than 60 recipes, for both classic and contemporary dishes, from Michael and Peter Clifford. There are contributions from many of the top names in Irish food, including Darina Allen, Tom Doorley and Sally McKenna, and little-seen black-and-white historical photographs.
