I have a cookery book I really love. It's called The Country Cooking of Ireland, by Coleman Andrews and it's a real winner. I have always felt that if you want to get a real sense of what a country is like, you will embrace the food of that country . . . and to do that you really need to get into the thick of the countryside. Let me tell you . . . the Irish countryside is a very delicious place! Especially if this recipe is a fair representation of that, and I believe it is. I thought it would be very fitting to share this with you as this week we will be celebrating St Patrick's Day, and since discovering this past year that 27% of my DNA is Irish, what better reason to celebrate!
Simple ingredients put together in a simple way with extraordinarily delicious results! I made a mustard sauce to serve with it, and boiled new potatoes . . . but a parsley sauce is just as delicious. I do hope you will give it a go.
*Bacon and Cabbage*Serves 4 to 6
Anyways, I hope you will make try this delicious recipe out. Mustard Sauce or Parsley Sauce. This is an Irish winner! Bon appetite!
