Gerry Adams is set to publish a cookery book, with recipes that will reveal the "best-kept secrets of the Irish peace process".

Appearing at the Feile an Phobail festival in west Belfast on Monday night, the former Sinn Fein president said the recipes would be based on cooking that sustained republicans through many years of negotiations.

The Irish Times reports the publication is to be called 'The Negotiators' Cook Book' and will be printed by Sinn Fein.


“The British never fed us. They never had any food. But as intrepid republicans and being blessed by one or two great cooks these are the recipes that sustained the Irish negotiating team," he said.

“It contains some of the best-kept secrets of the Irish peace process.”

In conversation with journalist Jude Collins, Mr Adams also discussed his approach to writing and the book of short stories he will be releasing next year.
