Or at least cook with me . . . use any of my Irish recipes and we’ll be cooking together, in spirt.
If you have a big family or will be feeding a crowd on St. Patrick’s Day, you can use my recipe for Sonoma Boiled Dinner with just a couple of changes; use corned beef for the meat and replace the cotechini with lamb riblets or simply omit it. It won’t be strictly traditional but it will be delicious and, once you’ve assembled all the ingredients, delicious.
Irish home cooking is simple, earthy, delicious and deeply satisfying. It is easy to cook and ingredients are readily available in most markets. And one of the best things about it is having leftovers: Corned beef hash! Potato pancakes! Toasted soda bread!
