After all, for this occasion and all over the world, people of Irish descend and not only, cook different Irish dishes to mark the day.
What exactly is Irish food?
Think of traditional Irish food and you will probably come up with potatoes, Irish Stew, Dublin Coddle, Bacon & Cabbage (Or Corned Beef & Cabbage, which is not even a traditional Irish dish, but an example of Irish emigrants to the United States making the best of available ingredients).
However, the story of Irish food is much richer and more varied than these stereotypes. It is all about food in season, simply cooked and delicious.
