15 Comfort Foods To Try This Winter.
Slide Nr 5
Dublin, Ireland – “Once the colder seasons begin to move in, us Irish immediately seek the warmth of comfort food. The world over, people are familiar with Irish Stew – stewed lamb, potatoes and root vegetables in a deliciously meaty broth, often bulked out with barley or lentils. Though lamb is traditional, it often isn’t the first choice for many, who opt for beef instead. Either work wonderfully. For a non-traditional addition, squirt some HP sauce into the broth and stir. Trust us. Where slow-cooked stew doesn’t tempt taste buds, there’s always colcannon. Buttery, creamy, soft mashed potatoes peppered with chopped curly kale, cabbage or spring onions stirred through it. On a cold evening, a bowl of this Irish classic is a meal all in itself, best enjoyed curled up near a roaring fire under a thick woollen blanket.” – Russell James Alford and Patrick Hanlon of gastrogays.com [Photo: VegaTeam/Flickr]
