Irish Recipes


Ireland is well-known for its farming tradition. Of course, potatoes are a key ingredient in Irish cooking, and indeed have been a stable ingredient in the Irish diet ever since their introduction in the late 17th century, but many other crops are grown too - including barley and oats. Additionally Ireland produces some excellent livestock - in recent years, beef has risen greatly in popularity,, but lamb and pork are both traditionally popular.

As you might expect, given Ireland's long coastline and seafaring tradition, seafood is also forms an important part of Irish cuisine. Oysters are very popular - and oysters are a popular event around the country, where they are eaten with Guinness. Ireland is also known for Dublin Bay prawns (langoustines) which are actually a miniature type of lobster. Popular fish include cod and salmon.

Many Irish meals are eaten with bread - and Ireland has its own unique types of bread, including:
  • Soda bread - A bread made using baking soda instead of yeast. Whole wheat soda bread is known as "wheaten".

  • Irish potato bread (also known as "fadge", "potato cake", "potato farls", and "slims" - as well as informally as "tatie bread") - Unleavened bread made using potatoes instead of much of the wheat flour.

  • Blaa - A very soft white bread roll, covered in layers of flour, that is unique to Waterford.
Blaa - Soft white bread rolls from Waterford City, Ireland

Some popular Irish dishes include:
  • Irish stew (Irish: Gaelic: Stobhach Gaelach) - This is probably the most famous Irish dish in the world - it's a stew made from lamb or mutton, with potatoes, onions and parsley. Some cooks recommend the addition of barley, root vegetables such as carrots, parsnips or turnips, or even Guinness. Irish emigrant communities around the world have taken this dish with them and adapted it to local conditions - for example, beef may be substituted for lamb, or paprika added to spice the dish up!

  • Coddle - Pork sausages and bacon rashers are quickly cooked. Then, potatoes, onions and perhaps barley, are added, and slowly cooked using the stock from the meat.

  • Bacon and cabbage - A traditional Irish dish. Although, Irish Americans often used corned beef, this is actual an adaption of the original bacon and cabbage recipe. beef and cabbage.

  • Champ - Mashed potato with chopped scallions (green onions), milk and butter.

  • Colcannon - Mashed potato with kale, cabbage or wild garlic.

Product Description:
People in Ireland are sometimes mortified by what Americans think of as “Irish food.” That’s because the real thing is much subtler and more delicious than any platter of overcooked corned beef and mushy cabbage could ever be. Real Irish food is brown soda bread so moist it barely needs the yolk-yellow butter; fragrant apple tarts with tender, golden crusts; rich stews redolent of meaty gravy and sweet carrots; crisp-edged potato cakes flipped hot from a skillet directly onto the plate. Forget meatloaf or mac and cheese—this stuff is the original comfort food.

Real Irish Food is the first comprehensive cookbook to bring classic Irish dishes to America with an eye for American kitchens and cooks, and with tips and tricks to help reproduce Irish results with American ingredients. Transform plain white fish by baking it with grated sharp cheese, mustard, and crumbs. Discover that celery takes on new life when sliced, simmered in chicken stock, and served in a lightly thickened sauce.

•Homemade Irish Sausages

•Potted Shrimp and Potted Salmon

•Finglas Irish Stew with Dumplings

•Whiskey Chicken and Roast Goose with Applesauce

•Boxty, Cally, Champ, and Colcannon

•Apple Snow, Almond Buns, and Summer Pudding

•Elderflower Lemonade, Black Velvet, and Ginger Beer

•Cherry Cake, Custard Tart, and Brandy Butter

From hearty roasts to innovative vegetable dishes, from trays of fresh-baked scones to rich, eggy cakes, and from jams bursting with tart fruit to everything you can do with a potato, there’s no food so warm and welcoming, so homey and family-oriented, so truly mouthwatering as real Irish food.

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.
