Snackshot of the Day: Colcannon

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Colcannon is a traditional Irish version of mashed potatoes.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of colcannon. St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, so start researching your Irish food and drink to be ready for the big day. Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish that is basically fancy mashed potatoes. In the version seen here, it's made with kale. In Ireland, colcannon is served year-round, frequently on Halloween.
