Kilkenny festive traditions celebrated in a new cookbook

Kilkenny’s best food producers and top restaurants have launched a second ‘festive’ cookbook. Entitled ‘Kilkenny Christmas Traditions’, the book celebrates the very best of Christmas culinary fare and traditions in the county.


With more people staying at home over the festive season, the 52 page book is set to test the culinary skills of its readers and is full of inspirational recipes to impress family and friends this Christmas. 


‘Kilkenny Christmas Traditions’ is available online at  https://visitkilkenny.ie/ christmas-cookbook/  and contains 27  easy to create recipes from festive starters, mains, sides to deserts, all using ingredients from Kilkenny food producers or recipes straight from the kitchen of some of the County’s best restaurants.


Among the contributors to the book are Fennelly’s of Callan; Aran; Rive Gauche; Stratham’s Restaurant at the Pembroke Hotel and Lil’s Restaurant at Hotel Avalon, among others. 


Commenting on the book Chairperson of Kilkenny Tourism, Brian Tyrell said; “We are delighted to launch the second festive cookbook from our wonderful restaurants and food producers. As we approach this Christmas, we are all mindful that this season will be celebrated very differently from previous years.  Dining at home will be very much part and parcel of the season, so what better time for people to experiment with new recipes created by our very best chefs and food producers.  A huge thanks to all the contributors around the County who made the book possible!”
