Bookish cooks and culinary historians will welcome Mahon's collection of every imaginable folkloric and literary reference to the hunting, growing, cooking, distilling, serving and consuming of fish, meat, poultry, grains, vegetables, herbs and dairy products in Ireland. Mahon (While Green Grass Grows: Memoirs of a Folklorist) writes about food with a spare sensuality that can make the mouth water, whether she's cataloguing the hams, puddings, sausages and stews made by farmer's wives after a pig-killing or quoting a 17th-century text describing the ""great platters of boiled flesh"" served at a wake.
