It’s fair to say ‘Irish’ and ‘cuisine’ are two words that don’t often appear next to one another. In fact to most outsiders, an Irish meal is like a Venn Diagram made up entirely of Corned Beef, Guinness and Potatoes. But anyone who’s visited (and ventured farther than a pub) will tell you this stereotype is as bad as any twinkly-eyed Leprechaun or Top-O-The-Morning cliche. Basically, there’s a lot more to Irish cuisine than starch.
Our friends at Perennial Plate set out to discover Ireland’s proud foodie heritage, from native oysters on the southern coast to wild lamb and crusty fresh-baked bread. They discovered that the Emerald Isle is surprisingly delicious, and that food tastes a lot better with poetry. To be sure.
