To my delight the other day when I was in my local bookstore, I came upon Cafe Paradiso Seasons cookbook. When I was in Cork 3-4 years ago, I was stunned by the food I had at the restaurant and went back again in my 3 day visit. The cookbook I purchased then was written, of course, for your cooking settings, so this one I can actually try and recreate the beautiful food in it without burning it.
Thank you for such wonderful food and now, recipes. Also it’s the first time I have seen the use of pumpkin oil that I have on the shelf and never have used.

wow!!!! A revalation, one of the best meals I have ever had (twice). A week-end in Cork was transformed, 6 of us had a memorable meal on St.Patricks day. How often do you visit the same place twice on a short city break—-we did, and the 2nd time was even better!!! Thanks so much

We were visting Cork for the first time this weekend and decided to have a meal with you on friday night as it had been recommended in the guidebook. we were lucky to get a table and have got to admit that it was the best meal we have ever had. It will make coming back to Ireland and Cork sometime soon a definite need to do and we haven’t stopped recommending you to our friends since getting back home. We had a meal at Raymond blancs restaurant le manoir de quatre saisons last year and you more than compare. Thank you so much for your hospitality and wonderful food, heres hoping to visit Ireland again very soon.

My visit to Cafe Paradiso remains permanently etched in my memory. The menu was truly excepptional and incomparable. Dennis Cotter has done a great job in organizing this restaurant. I wish you would consider opening another one hear Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Regards

Hi, having had a wonderful evening via a suprise Christmas present from Claire, my wife, for Valentine’s Day 2004, I would want to return the surpise for 14 February 2005. Will you be open?

Denis Cotter comments: – Sorry Neil, but the 14th falls on a Monday this year, so the restaurant will be closed. I know, I know…we should open, but we’ve always been strict about the five day week, and I can’t see Valentines Day changing that. Sorry. Denis Cotter, Cafe Paradiso

Looking forward to eating with you next summer 2005 on our family Round the World trip. I found your cookbook in a little food Coop on Vashon Island in Washington state and was very impressed! I worked at Ballymaloe House in Cork as a Chef several years ago- I guess before you restaurant was there- so was excited to read about you, try some of your delicious and creative recipes, and add you to our travel plans!

How I wish I were in Cork … but the next best thing is to live here in the Pacific Northwest with loads of great produce and Denis’ cookbooks. I have a question: Have you written THREE cookbooks or TWO? I have Cafe Paradiso Seasons and The Cafe Paradiso Cookbook … but I spy another one on the net called simply Cafe Paradiso Cookbook. Is it different from “The” CP Cookbook? I don’t want to miss ANY of your recipes. Thank you so much for sharing your skill and passion for good food through your cookbooks. You are at my elbow almost nightly as I make our dinner. Yours, Becky

Denis Cotter comments: – The third book is a U.S. publication of Paradiso Seasons, which finally went out with the title of Cafe Paradiso Seasons – but only after the publisher had advertised it using the same title as my first book. I’m sorry for the confusion, but its beyond my control. There are only two books – Cafe Paradiso Cookbook and Paradiso Seasons. Give me a couple of years though…
