    How to Cook dishes from Ireland


    Ireland Ireland is known for its lush green lands, which are of course excellent for the growing of crops and the grazing of livestock. Traditional Irish food is hearty, wholesome, fare made from local produce - recipes may be simple but they are both tasty and satisfying!

    Potatoes are also a prominent feature of Irish cooking. They were introduced in the late 17th century, and have become the staple crop of Ireland. Oats and barley are also grown, and have been for many centuries. Popular meats include lamb and pork.

    Of course, with the island of Ireland being surrounded by sea, fish and seafood is also popular. Ireland is particularly known for its langoustines (known as "Dublin Bay prawns") and oysters, the latter often eaten with Guinness at the many oyster festivals around the country each year. Popular types of fish include salmon and cod.

    Some popular traditional Irish recipes and dishes include:
    • Bacon and cabbage - Irish Americans often make a similar dish from corned beef and cabbage.

    • Champ - Mashed potatoes with chopped spring onions, butter and milk.

    • Coddle - Boiled pork sausages with bacon, potatoes, onions and optionally barley. The ingredients are cooked in the stock that comes from the sausages and bacon. Salt, pepper, and parsley are added for flavor.

    • Colcannon - Mashed potatoes with garlic, cabbage or kale (a type of cabbage closer to the plant's wild origins).

    • Irish stew (Irish Gaelic: Stobhach Gaelach) - A stew made from lamb or mutton, with potatoes, onions and parsley. Barley, carrots, parsnips or turnips may also be added in some variants of the recipes. Irish communities in other countries (such as the United States), have adapted to use locally available meats (for example, substituting beef for lamb), or by adding extra ingredients (such as Guinness or paprika) to create new flavors.
    Ireland is also home to its own unique types of bread. These include:
    • Blaa - A very soft white bread roll, covered in layers of flour, that is unique to Waterford City.

      Blaa - Soft white bread rolls from Waterford City, Ireland

    • Barmbrack (Irish: Báirnín Breac) - This is an Irish sweet bread made with sultanas and raisins embedded in it, and often eaten toasted with butter. On Halloween, it traditionally contains various items baked in the bread, which are used for a fortune-telling game (what you get in your slice, tells your fortune).

    • Irish potato bread (also known as "fadge", "potato cake", "potato farls", "slims" or "tatie bread") - Unleavened bread made from a combination of potatoes and wheat flour.

    • Soda bread - A bread made using baking soda instead of yeast. Whole wheat soda bread is known as "wheaten".

    Product Description:
    When Ballymaloe's doors opened to students in 1983 there were 15 courses available. Now there are over 100, reflected in the recipes collected here, including curing meat, making gluten-free meals and sushi as well as learning forgotten skills like producing butter and cheese and beekeeping. The book chronicles how the school has been at the forefront of cooking and food trends since its inception, from Darina's championing of the Slow Food movement and her highlighting the importance of using local, seasonal and fresh produce to installing a wood-burning oven and expanding its gardens so students can learn the importance of eating less meat and more vegetables and preserving heirloom varieties of produce. A fascinating insight into Ballymaloe, this is also a history of food over the past thirty years―from a time when Darina couldn't get anything other than pre-packaged, grated Parmesan cheese to one where a local producer makes his own mozzarella.

    Product Description:
    The food scene in Ireland is thriving, and Clodagh McKenna is at the forefront of it all. Clodagh presents today's Irish cooking at its best with Clodagh's Irish Kitchen, in which she takes the stereotypical Irish dishes Americans usually think of and revitalizes them to the current Irish palate. Dubbed as Ireland's answer to Rachael Ray or Martha Stewart by Forbes Magazine, Clodagh says, "In Ireland life revolves around the kitchen, whether it's cups of tea and a piece of cake fresh from the range, a family supper, Sunday lunch, or our famed Irish breakfast – life happens over a simmering pot in Ireland. I have gathered all my family recipes from my earliest memories of baking cakes and breads with my mum and sisters on a Saturday to comforting suppers that I love to eat when I go home to my more sophisticated Irish menus I cooked for the Taoiseach of Ireland. We love to celebrate at home in Ireland, so I have gathered all my favorite Irish recipes and given them my twist to make them even more delicious and achievable just for you…"

    With Ireland's rich culinary history, it's understandable that internationally recognized dishes such as Colcannon and Soda Bread should be representative of the country's identity, but there is far more to discover about Irish cooking. Let Clodagh guide you through this tempting collection of 150 recipes―Potato Dumplings are reinvigorated with a Spicy Cashel Blue Sauce, while the famous Full Irish Breakfast is given a new lease of life as a tortilla. With everything from soups and stews to preserves and sophisticated dinner party dishes, Clodagh's Irish Kitchen is a mouthwatering adventure around this sumptuous cuisine.

    Product Description:
    American city girl marries Irish dairy farmer; cooking, growing, foraging, fishing, preserving, and baking ensue: 150 delightful classic Irish recipes updated for the modern home cook.

    The Farmette Cookbook documents Imen McDonnell's extraordinary Irish country cooking journey, which began the moment she fell in love with an Irish farmer and moved across the Atlantic to County Limerick. This book's collection of 150 recipes and colorful stories chronicles nearly a decade-long adventure of learning to feed a family (and several hungry farmers) while adjusting to her new home (and nursing a bit of homesickness). Along the way she teaches us foundational kitchen skills and time-honored Irish traditions, sharing wisdom from her mother-in-law and other doyennes of Irish cooking. We learn the ritual of Sunday lunch, pudding, and tea. We go along with her on wild crafting walks--the country version of foraging for wild edibles. We visit her local fishmonger to see what we can create with his daily catch from the sea. Along the way we see how she's deviated from classic Irish recipes to add contemporary or American twists.

    The Farmette Cookbook
    is a compilation of tried-and-true recipes with an emphasis on local, fresh ingredients and traditional Irish kitchen skills, which for Imen have healed homesickness and forged new friendships.
