“I made this when we were travelling in Ireland the summer of 2013, and the locals thought it was pretty tasty. Since then, it's become a family staple. On a cold rainy day it is perfect, and I serve it with a salad made with baby lettuces, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic and some crusty fresh bread chunks.”
