Colcannon + Corned Beef = Yum

Shamrock.jpgEven those of us without a drop of Irish ancestry can use St. Patrick's Day as an excuse to sample some delicious fare from the Emerald Isle. Recipe sources range from books such as The Irish Pub Cookbook to the Ready Reference Historic Recipe File to numerous websites. One of my favorites, accessible via the Milwaukee Public Library's House and Garden Recommended Links, is www.allrecipes.com. What I especially like about this site is the review section, which allows a sort of virtual kaffeeklatsch in which people who've made the item offer their suggestions on how to tweak it. There's also the serendipity of starting out with a search for Irish potatoes and winding up with a delicious mash up of spuds and cabbage called Colcannon. Bon appetit, now you may eat!
