Great traditional Irish recipes like Irish stew, Irish soda bread and colcannon. We also have Northern Ireland fare like farls, champ and Ulster fry ups. Try the more modern treats like Guinness chocolate cake and have a go at making your own Irish cream liqueur.
Hearty and traditional Irish lamb stew with lots of bacon. If possible refrigerate the stew overnight and reheat it the next day to allow the flavours to mingle.
Soda bread is a very easy bread that requires no kneading. It is even better the next day. Serve with butter as a side to Irish stew!
Barm Brack is bread from Ireland where it is traditionally associated with their celebration of Halloween. I just like it for afternoon tea with lots of butter.
Traditional recipes for Irish stew use a tough, fatty cut of lamb and only potatoes, onions and herbs. This up-to-date version with lamb leg steaks is leaner, and more colourful with the addition of carrots.
These are flavourful and crispy potato pancakes. They are very easy to make if you have a food processor to shred the potatoes.
This recipe is for rich and moist dark chocolate and coffee cupcakes with a silky Irish cream buttercream icing.
Chunky pieces of parsnip add sweetness and fresh rosemary adds a distinct flavour and aroma to this traditional stew. If you use a tougher cut of meat, you can leave it to simmer longer before adding the potatoes. This is fantastic on a cold, blustery day - served with a pint of the black stuff, of course!
Colcannon can be made with other greens such as kale but this version uses cabbage and leeks. Delicious!
This is an Irish current loaf which is delicious either as breakfast or as an afternoon snack with a cup of tea.
This is a simple Irish style soda bread that uses buttermilk and is filled with sultanas for a wonderful morning or afternoon tea choice.
