Ireland Cuisine and Food

Irish Stew
Irish Stew is the country’s best known dish, made from lamb or mutton. It is simmered in hot water with potatoes, onions, carrots, leeks, and pearl barley. Potatoes have been a staple food in Ireland since the 1800s. Irish stew is traditionally served with dumplings made from suet.

Smoked Fish Crunch
This is a chewy crunchy selection of celery and cabbage. Flaked smoked fish, diced potatoes and a delicious French dressing is added to this dish which makes the dish healthy.

Currant Scones with Creme Fraiche

Currant Scones with Creme Fraiche
Of Scottish origin, these tea biscuits are richer than ordinary biscuits due to the addition of eggs and cream. Warm scones are traditionally served after the tea sandwiches, accompanied by jams and whipped Devon cream. In this case, French creme fraiche, a slightly tangy thickened cream, is used in place of the Devon. Bake the scones just prior to serving to ensure their tenderness.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Corned Beef and Cabbage
The Irish have been preserving meat in corns of salt since the 11th centruy, and have long served this dish on special occasions. The ingrediants includes yellow onions, cloves corned beef, carrots, bay leaves black peppercorns, green cabbage russet potatoes, salt, freshly ground black pepper, and hot mustard.

Welsh Rarebit

Welsh Rarebit
It is a constant in cooking that even the simplest food is splendid when the recipe is honest and the ingredients are select. A venerated cheese dish, Welsh rarebit is perhaps rightly dubbed Welsh rabbit, since older French references call it lapin gallois. Paired here with a light salad, it makes a wonderful buffet dinner.
