Cabbage and mashed potatoes has always been a staple dish my family serves on St. Patrick's Day and in the winter to bring out our Irish heritage. I would always mix the two together and thought that I was the only one. While doing research for my digital assignment at Columbus College of Art and Design, I soon found out that I was in fact not the only one and that it had a name: colcannon! This recipe may not look the prettiest but it's a wonderful comfort food dish for those cold winter nights!
Free Shakespeare in the Park is a New York summer tradition. Tickets are distributed in the afternoon, on a first come first served basis to those who waited in line between 2 and 8 hours. That’s a long time. Friends and I would pack a picnic lunch. We brought something to drink, cheese, bread, coleslaw, fruit and cookies. The coleslaw represented the quintessential picnic food. It was always worth the wait to see the plays.
This is magic one because it made my hubby actually looking forward to eat tones of veggies (instead of thinking about this as a punishment ;). Whole concept is loosely based on Jam type of Thai salads which was I ate most often when we stay there(6 month all together) and I missed dearly so I just start making those at home. One day I run out of eye bird chili but I had can of chipotle in my fridge which gave it a bit of Mexican twist. For sure this is not your authentic Thai meal but just the way I cook at home. Sometimes I use glass noodles, sometimes rice tagliatelle and sometimes quinoa (or just veggies). If I don't have palm sugar I use anything sweet from date syrup to plain white sugar (come one! it's just a little spoon). It will work with nearly any veggies and fruits - just think a mixture of crunchy, soft, creamy, tangy, salty, spicy a bit sweet goodness. One thing important is to heat up the dressing and then mix all the ingredients in a same, still hot pot, to make salad not really cooked or anything but also not fridge-cold. We eat it crazy spicy but it will be ok mild. Have fun!
One of a series of St Patrick's Day recipes created to help you celebrate the day with authentic Irish food. Bacon and cabbage is a traditional Irish combination and I've added caraway to gently spice it up. The gorgeous whiskey sauce is delicious on bacon but works just as well poured over ice cream. You may not be able to get your hands on an authentic St Patrick's Day badge (they're even hard to find now in Ireland) but you can get your hands on some real Irish Bacon and Cabbage. Enjoy!
