    This is possibly my favorite cookbookever I absolutely adore it Not just because it is based around the Celtic traditions and Pagan Sabbats and Esbats but alsothe recipes are AMAZING You will find something for every occasion in this book and then some There is a huge catalogue of recipes that can be used during the turn of the wheel including beverages which I always appreciate in a cookbook according to British Celtic Tradition Ireland Wales Scotland and Cornwall I loved that there was a large variety from each Celtic land so many so called Celtic reference books forget to even include Wales or Cornwall and focus so heavily on Ireland that one begins to wonder if they even know their Celtic history with traditional recipes from each countryregion to satisfy all tastes It also has a plethora of Celtic proverbs poetry traditions in short story form and a great introduction with a a break down of each Sabbat and Esbat within the wheel of the year and a general history of the Celts and their culinary traditions in relation to the ever turning wheel Using traditional seasonal food and assigning each one to a Sabbat and Esbat it really is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Celtic history Pagan tradition both are so centered around hearth and home eating drinking and celebrating or just looking for some delicious traditional Celtic recipes this book is THE BEST offering I have found on the market to date Truly my most reached for cookbook

    A friend in my book club was talking about how she loves to read cookbooks I've never considered just reading a cookbook before Celtic Folklore Cooking was a delightful start to this new reading adventure It was filled with myth poems and folklore There were recipes to delight every palate and traditions to inspire new cooking journeys The first table of contents in this book lays out the categories of recipes There is a section for beverages breads milkeggscheese soup vegetables fishseaweed meat and desserts At the beginning of each of these sections you will discover another table of content that lays out the individual recipes This is an interesting way of laying out the sections but is perhaps not the most efficient way to find a specific dish It makes a reader linger over the cookbook rather than just go to a page cook and put away What I loved was reading about how the traditions surrounding a certain recipe came to be or how many still use it today There were recipes that my family still use and new dishes I hope to try Each recipe begins with a description and folklore The ingredients are bolded making it very easy to read while cooking The steps are not detailed but remain simple and clear Some of the recipes are copies of very old recipes and might take a bit deciphering to use but are so uniue Poems and stories also dot the pages You are sure to find treasures and inspiration in this cookbook

    There are many recipes in this cookbook that have unrealistic ingredients However I have found some great recipes in this book over the years and particularly appreciate that there is an index at the back which organizes recipes by sabbat This book was particularly useful before the internet became so searchable? Either way I don't always cook from this book but when celebrating Neopagan events I usually find some inspiration here

    This is part cookbook and part folklore collection It is broken down into general categories breads porridges and breakfast foods vegetables meat and wild game etc Then at the beginning of each section the individual recipes are listed Between recipes you get poems uotes legends some history and little notes The index glossary and bibliography are all well done and fairly extensive which is a good mark to me My particular copy had Catholic correspondences written in I think the former owner had gotten the book thinking it was strictly Celtic and did not realize there was a Wiccan bent to it I didn't know it was going to be uite so Wiccan until I read through it thoroughly myself The information and recipes are wonderful enough that non Wiccans should still enjoy this book

    I love this book Not only is it full of truly tasty recipes for things like Lammas bread and wassail it has stories and legends and spells and poems interspersed throughout with a presentation based on the Wheel of the Year Great fun

  6. Johanna Haas Johanna Haas says:

    Loads of fun lots of stories behind these traditional recipes so the reader gets a real feel about who ate these and where when why they ate them Biggest drawback there really is a reason why the British Isles are not known for their cuisine

  7. Jaclyn Jaclyn says:

    A little new ageypagan than I was expecting but plenty of the Grimm's folklore I was expecting Recipes look great can't wait to try them I don't recommend reading when hungry or before bed

  8. Angela Angela says:

    This is one I always go back to Food and drink for all of the Celtic Lunar celebrations and stories from the cultural traditions that the dishes are steeped in

  9. Clare Clare says:

    This book is lots of fun especially when creating celebrations
