Beautiful Affair

From the early days of his music with Stockton’s Wing to training at Ballymaloe, food and music have been parallel lines that have kept Mike Hanrahan on track. With affectionate portraits of the legendary personalities he came to know along the way, and favourite recipes he served up as he went, Beautiful Affair rings with the sheer graft, dedication and serious sense of humour of a life well spent on stage – and in the kitchen.
