What "traditional skills" are covered in this book besides Irish cookery? Are these things which go back into our period of study? I thought I had a similar one on English Country Life or some such, but it doesn't show up in my book database.

I might be interested in this book. And at the least, I'm trying to figure whether to place these reviews about this book in the Florilegium cookbooks file or the one on books about food or somewhere else.

(Yeah, I've not worked in a while, my savings are dwindling, and I'm thinking about buying another book...  But this one sounds like it could be very interesting...)
It's very good. More traditional skills than just Irish cookery.
I've had it since St. Patrick's Day.
I also like Colman Andrews The Country Cooking of Ireland too. It came  
out at about the same time.
