For our family reunion this year, my mother and I are putting together a cook book of family recipes. Being a large Irish family, we'd like the title to have an Irish flair. I find plenty of toasts and and drinking related words/sayings but no good food saying that could be used for a cook book title.
We're thinking of something like an Irish equivalent to Bon Appétit! Is there such a thing?

Any other suggestions for a cook book title would be appreciated. Thanks
Sláinte
Tim

I think it's something like "go tú sult as" "may you have enjoyment out of it" but I forgot the correct words.

I usually just use "bain tú sult as"

Le meas,

"Bain sult as" is enough, the tú is wrong in this case
Not sure how appropriate this is for food.
Traditionally, people in Ireland have begun a meal with saying Grace, so there is no natural place for saying Bon Appetit.
I must check my books, perhap I can find an appropriate aspiration.

Or how about the proverb
"Is iontach an t-anlann an t-ocras" (Hunger is the best sauce)

- why not call the book Anlann Iontach?
