Irish cuisine is the style of cooking that originated from the island of Ireland developed by Irish people. It has evolved from centuries of social and political change and the mixing of the different cultures in Ireland, predominantly from nearby Britain. The cuisine is founded upon the crops and animals farmed in its temperate climate and the abundance of fresh fish and seafood from the surrounding waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Potatoes were widely adopted in the 18th century and essentially became the main food poor people (the vast majority of the population) could afford. Representative dishes include Irish stew, bacon and cabbage, boxty, soda bread, coddle, and colcannon.

    Recipe Colcannon

    I love the simplicity of this recipe. Quantities really do not need to be exact and if you want to use dairy milk and dairy butter, it really won't affect it. The original recipe says to peel the potatoes, but I can tell you now that that is not necessary at all. The greens can be pretty much...

    What's the deal with Irish Tea?

    I made Barnbrack for Halloween and post some pics 'round the net. I got some feedback that it is best eaten with a hot cup of Irish tea. Fine. I go online and find Irish tea and it doesn't taste any different. Now, I had a choice between Fortnum & Mason (40USD) or Twinings (10USD), so I went...

    For many people, shepherd’s pie is comfort food, something they grew up with, which reminds them of home cooking: A mom somewhere making a weekly or possibly every other week’s dish. Often it was served with ground beef (here in America, at any rate), without a clue towards nomenclature. My...

    Being a good (second-generation) Irishman, I feel I should blow the trumpet a little for Irish cheese in general and cheese from County Cork in particular. A personal favourite is Durrus from West Cork. This has wonderful depth of flavour and would be my choice if only allowed a solitary...
