The national dish of Ireland is probably the famous Irish stew (the other possible choice would be Colcannon). Why not enjoy it on St. Patrick’s Day (17th of March 2015). Stewing is an ancient method of cooking meats that is common throughout the world. When the Celts invaded Ireland they brought the first bronze cauldrons, copied from Greek models, which then became the dominant cooking tool. The use of potato in the stew, did not occur until after the sixteenth century when seafarers brought the crop from the New World. Enjoy the recipe made by Paula, our country chef from Ireland.
