10 Traditional Irish Dishes You Should Know Slideshow

Slide 1 of 10
Colcannon

Not only was this traditional dish a treat for the people of Ireland, but it was said to satiate the fairies and goblins that roamed the evergreen hills. Traditionally, trinkets (like a sixpence for wealth or a ring for marriage) were hidden inside dishes of colcannon that, when found by a diner, would indicate what the year held in store for them. The traditional recipe is a flavorful blend of potato, cabbage, and kale, but ours takes on a healthier theme, using cauliflower instead of potatoes.
