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, quotes, 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 thi 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, quotes, 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 quite so Wiccan until I read through itthoroughly myself The information and recipes are wonderful enough that non Wiccans should still enjoy this book A littlenew agey pagan than I was expecting, but plenty of theGrimm s folklore I was expecting Recipes look great, can t wait to try them I don t recommend reading when hungry or before bed. 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. I love this book The recipes are awesome and the little tales or info on holy days is fantabulous. &Free Pdf ⇟ Celtic Folklore Cooking ↜ A treasury of delectable recipes,Celtic Folklore Cooking by Joanne Asala will help you select foods to serve at your celebrations of the Sabbats and Esbats the festivals and ritual times for Witches and Wiccans It is also a terrific introduction to Celtic culture The recipes in this book were gathered during four trips the author took to Ireland and Britain, as well as visits to Scotland and Wales She searched for people who still cooked in the traditional of their ancestors, passing down recipes from generation to generation The result is a book that is rich in Celtic tradition And the foods are delicious any time, too Like a well stocked larder, Celtic Folklore Cooking offers plenty of tempting choices for daily meals or special celebrations Pick from thantasty traditional dishes, all nestled among colorful food related proverbs, poems, tales, customs, and other nuggets of folk wisdom Each recipe lists ancient and modern holidays associated with the dish so you can select the perfect fare to complement the season Recipes include Mushroom and Scallop Pie Heather Wine Pratie Oaten Beestings Pancakes Hot Cross buns Figgy Pudding Boxty on the Griddle Barm Brack Sweet Scones Scotch Eggs Colcannon Cockle Soup Flower Pudding Flummery MeadThe ancient Celts celebrated their Sabbats with music, dance, games, food, and drink Whether you are a solitary practitioner or a part of a larger group, food and drink should always be a part of your festivities, rituals, and ceremonies This book can be the key to a wide variety of foods that will make you the talk of the town If you are involved in Celtic traditions, this book is a must If you simply like unique recipes for foods that are as tasty today as they were hundreds, even thousands of years ago, you ll want this book, too 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.
