Book of the Year - Slainte by Caroline Hennessy & Kristin Jensen
Slainte is an important book, in a year of many exceptional books from Irish cooks and writers, because it digs beer out of the ghetto, and outs it as a cultural and culinary artefact that is essential to good living, good cooking, good eating and good drinking. Caroline and Kirsten have performed the most valuable work of cultural exploration and explication, in a book that is a joy to read.
