Modern and Traditional
There are two forms of Irish food, traditional and modern. Colcannon is a traditional dish made by using mashed potatoes, butter, kale and spices. Modern dishes include ingredients as well as cooking techniques from various cultures, while the traditional foods are much simpler. You will learn from Dublin Food Tour that in the 16th century, the potato was introduced to Ireland. Because it grew well, it quickly became the staple cash crop for the country. Potato is still used in many dishes, such as champ. Champ is a mashed potato that has scallions, butter and milk mixed with it.
There is one traditional dish native to Dublin identified as coddle. Coddle is made from pork sausage that is boiled creating a stock.
