The food in Ireland is special, there’s no two ways about it. Irish food is humble, comforting and packed with flavour.
You can rustle up lots of nourishing and healthy Irish food from the comfort of your own home – as well as some more decadent and indulgent options when you need to treat yourself.
Chatting to this Community
, it’s clear that one of the most beloved dishes is Irish stew
. The most popular stews are made with beef or lamb (and even a touch of Guinness if you fancy a richer taste). It’s the kind of dish that you can just prepare and leave on the cooker to simmer away for an hour or two and really enrich those flavours.
If you have an Irish granny – or even if you know one – chances are you’ve been treated to some traditional Irish soda bread
. Warm soda bread slathered in butter is a treat like no other. And the best part is that this bread is pretty easy to make – no yeast or heavy kneading required.
If you want to create Irish dishes of the highest quality, you’ll have to ask the experts – and there’s no greater authority on Irish food than Kevin Dundon, one of the island’s best-loved chefs.
In his latest video series, filmed in the gorgeous Dunbrody House
in Ireland’s Ancient East
, Kevin shows you how to make Irish staples like the previously mentioned soda bread and rich desserts like chocolate fondant
But our favourite has to be his recipe for a hearty kitchen garden soup
. It ticks all the boxes: healthy, nourishing, and most importantly, delicious. If you’ve more of a sweet tooth, treat yourself to some irresistibly moreish classic Irish scones
Does anyone in our Community have some Irish recipes they’d like to share?
