Blasta (blastə) adj From the Irish language, meaning delicious, tasty, appetising. Rhymes with pasta. Blasta Books are changing the way that cookbooks are published in order to make more room at the table.
Hardcover, small format, and illustrated by Dublin artist Nicky Hooper, the cookbooks will be released four times a year as a quarterly periodical series.
Each volume is a standalone 72-page A5 cookbook, but as a collectible series, they will also provide a more inclusive snapshot of Ireland’s modern and diverse food culture, from tacos to tapas, spice bags to sushi. They are little books with big voices.
