Lucy Madden

Food writer

Having moved to Ireland from London in the 1970s, Lucy Madden began growing vegetables in the large Victorian walled garden of her home, the Hilton Park Estate, in Clones, Co. Monaghan. She soon fell in love with potato growing and put her work into practice for her guests, developing a huge repertoire of culinary options with home-grown spuds. A member of the Irish Food Writers' Guild of Ireland, Lucy is perhaps the best placed cook and writer to complete the ultimate seasonal potato cookbook, which contains over 300 recipes for any occasion. From traditional pototo dishes to wild potato desserts, The Potato Year is a perfect companion for anyone interested in knowing more about the most versatile and nourishing vegetable in Ireland.
