"Irish Stew is made from mutton: the meat of an old sheep. Mutton must simmer for hours to render it chewable. As a child, I not only hated the taste, I hated the smell of it cooking, but since my mother was born in Ireland and my father in South Boston, it was weekly fare. A large family has little time for finicky eaters and so I removed carrots, potatoes and turnips from the pot, washing them in hot water and mashed them with butter or I ate bread and molasses."

Rose Gotsis opens the door and welcomes the reader with warmth. This serving of Irish Stew fills the soul with the humor and frustrations of a large family trying to get by during the Depression era. So relax, pull up a comfortable seat and join the escapades of this entertaining glimpse into a bigger-than-life family. You'll never look at Irish Stew the same way again.
