what are your favourite Irish dishes? I need a recipe.
Irish stew - although it's a moot point whether what I'm actually I cook is Irish Stew, scouse, lobsgaws or Lancashire Hotpot.
Lots of recipes for all of them on t'internet.
I really like Tyler Florence's version of colcannon. It is mashed potatoes and cabbage. It is delicious!
Raw oysters were wonderful there.
Roast lamb and lamb stew were good.
Lamb is also the main ingredient in shephard's pie (if you use beef it's 'cottage pie' -- shephards care for sheep...). I loved it there, too.
Irish soda bread is wonderful with Irish bitter (which you can now get in the US).
Here's a recipe for Dubin Coddle. I've never made it, only eaten it in Ireland. http://www.food.com/recipe/dublin-cod...
Of course, the stout is very good there, as is the whisky -- both are Irish inventions.
Black and White Pudding
