Irish Brown Bread
If you want a big old slice of nubbly, oaty bread that just begs to be spread with a layer of thick jam or a melting pat of butter, try this Irish brown bread. Coarse wheat flour lends a vaguely sweet, honey flavor and a hint of toasted oats.
Irish Morning Bread
This dough is made from whole wheat flour, oats, and a heavy dose of raisins, all which give it a particularly lumpy appearance. Yet those same ingredients are what gives this bread character. The raisins add pops of chewy sweetness and the mixture of oats and brown flour create a dense but moist crumb with a strong wheat flavor. Topped with sugar, it has a crackly-sweet crust, indulgent and wholesome at the same time.

Stout Beef Stew

Crispy Smashed Potatoes
Frying these potatoes in duck fat creates an extra-thick and crispy crust. They're crunchier than the best chips from the chipper, and packed with great roasted flavor.
Ultra Fluffy Mashed Potatoes
The key to super fluffy mashed potatoes is to remove as much starch from the spuds as possible. We accomplish this by peeling and dicing them before rinsing them in water and boiling them just until cooked. Using a ricer or food mill prevents excess damage to the starch granules, helping the potatoes remain nice and light.
Spotted Dog Soda Bread
In a time when Ireland was more agrarian, this "Spotted Dog" was a snack typically made by farmers' wives and transported to the fields wrapped in a tea towel and served whiskey-filled with hot sweetened tea. The name either refers to the spotting of raisins on its surface, or it's a derivative of spotted dick, a steamed pudding dotted with currants. No matter where the name comes from, this is an old-fashioned recipe that stands the test of time.
