Corned beef and cabbage cooking right now. Guiness ready in the fridge. Also making Colcannon which is new for us.
My wife and I took a two hour "Irish home cooking" class from an irish chef yesterday at our local library. Our library has a guest chef give a free two hour cooking lesson every month. I've only made a couple classes, but so far I've been impressed. The chef from yesterday actually owns a offset smoker and offered to do a two day bbq class this summer, but the woman in charge of the library nixed the idea.
He made a bunch of stuff I never heard of but it was all great.
From now on instead of mashed potatoes I'm making Colcannon. Basically it's mashed potatoes with cabbage and onion in it. The cabbage and onions are boiled in the water with the potatoes then drain, add butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste, and mash with a power mixer.
Goes great with beef sausage which was his version of sausage and Colcannon (AKA bangars and mash)
