‘Apron Strings-Recipes from a Family Kitchen’ – Book Launch

I could barely contain my excitement as the postman handed me a parcel with a “New Island” sticker on the front. Within was my book, that for many months I had greatly anticipated holding in my hands.  I know many of the recipes by heart, I had spent long hours carefully taking and picking photographs to include, and the content is all so familiar to me, yet on unwrapping the brown paper before me was something so new.  A shiver went down my spine as I flicked through the pages, inhaling that distinctive new book smell, seeing for the first time all my recipes, writing and photos together in book form.  It has finally happened; my book “Apron Strings” is published. The feeling of accomplishment and excitement is unbelievable. On Thursday evening last we celebrated the book’s launch in Dún Na Sí, Moate.  A wonderful evening with family and friends was enjoyed. I’d truly like to thank anyone who called by and helped to make the evening so special. If you do buy the book I hope you enjoy reading and cooking your way through it.
