About The Author


Over the past 10 years, Judith McLoughlin has become one of the most recognized Irish faces and brands in Atlanta, throughout the American South and abroad. Judith grew up in County Armagh in the heart of rural Northern Ireland.

She is regularly asked to contribute to food columns in national newspapers and magazines on both sides of the Atlantic and also leads numerous discovery tours from the United States to Ireland each year, showcasing the beauty and sophistication of modern Ireland.


Author Judith McLoughlin is a transplant from Northern Ireland to the American south and she used her own journey to trace the origins of immigrant food. The result isn’t just interesting and historical, but absolutely delicious.

Her Expertise


Specializing in Scots-Irish cuisine, Judith has created her own unique food fusion by blending the techniques of her homeland with the new found flavors of the South to great acclaim.

Judith learned the techniques of the Scots-Irish culinary tradition from her family, who had generations of experience in the hospitality & restaurant business, before deciding on a move to the United States with her husband Gary. After spending a short time in the Boston area, they settled in Atlanta Georgia where Judith started her own gourmet food business called ‘The Shamrock and Peach‘. 


The Shamrock And Peach • A Culinary Journey From Ireland To The American South

The Shamrock and Peach is a cookbook that explores the best of Scots-Irish cuisine, but it is also the tale of an immigrant’s journey to the American South, following in the footsteps of the many thousands of Scots-Irish settlers who forged the trails of Appalachia years ago. It is a story of the many cultural overlaps that exist between the north of Ireland and the Deep South, celebrating those cultural expressions through the language of really good food.

Filled with beautiful photographs of both regions, this cookbook will be a fun and interesting resource to browse through and use in your kitchen for years to come.
