I am not Irish. I corn my own beef using the recipe that appeared in Cooks Illustrated some years back. While my family kind of didn’t know if they liked it or not the first few bites, the more they ate, the more they agreed that it was better than store corned beef. I don’t eat corned beef, so I don’t know what they meant, LOL.
And of course, Irish Soda Bread! I got the recipe I use from a co-worker about 25 years ago, her mother came from Ireland. It always gets rave reviews, and anyone that’s made the recipe after I’ve passed it on to them has also raved about it. It’s a richer bread, made with egg and no whole wheat flour as opposed to lean whole wheat varieties.
