For more than thirty-five years, McGuire's Irish Pub has been serving authentic fare to its customers in Pensacola, Florida. Now, fans of McGuire's fun-loving food and drinks can try all their best dishes at home. This mouth-watering volume covers McGuire's signature recipes for everything from bread and brunch to fish and fowl to meat and desserts. Also included in the foreword are 32 color photographs of McGuire's itself to give readers a sense of the quirky pub that is home to such terrific meals. One evening's menu might begin with Potato Goat-Cheese Napoleons with Olive Pesto, followed by Mean Gene's Mulligatawny with freshly baked Barmbrack, a traditional Irish loaf. For the main course, you might choose Stuffed Quail with Pilsner Sauce. But why stop there? No dinner is complete without dessert, and who could resist Apple Brown Betty Cheesecake, paired with a warm mug of Hot Limerick Toddy? For breakfast the next morning, treat yourself to Gingerbread Waffles with Irish Coffee Syrup and Ginger Sugar! McGuire's creative appetizers, entr'es, and desserts are impossible to resist. Regardless of what is on the menu, enjoy McGuire's food with a "bain taitneamh as do bheile"-a hearty appetite. Chapters feature such delicacies as breads, party picks, sandwiches, savory pies and tarts, pasta and crepes, and heavenly desserts.

Jessie Tirsch knows good food and cookbooks. A former New York advertising executive, she moved to New Orleans after a trip to Jazz Fest in 1988. What both cities have in common, of course, is food-from haute cuisine to late-night dining spots. Tirsch has creatively combined her love affair with food with her flair for writing. Since she moved to the Crescent City, Tirsch has lent her considerable talents to numerous cookbooks. Here, Tirsh turns her attention to a landmark of Pensacola, Florida: the renowned McGuire's Irish Pub. Tirsch ably captures the magic of the pub and presents some of the recipes that have garnered McGuire's four consecutive Golden Spoon Awards, which recognize the pub as one of Florida's top restaurants. From the cuisine of the Far East to that of the Emerald Isle, Jessie Tirsch knows it all!
