If cooking is all about simplicity for you, I think you’ll enjoy the cuisine of the Emerald Isle. Irish cuisine is simple, hearty and seasonal, the products are basic and local. We give you the different culinary specialities in Ireland for your internship abroad.

Irish oysters

If you have the opportunity to do your internship in Ireland in September, you will have the privilege of tasting the seasonal oysters that come into season in September.

Black pudding

Black pudding is likely to be on the menu of posh Irish restaurants these days, served with sautéed scallops, as croquettes, under poached eggs, in salads and risottos and as a garnish for soups.

The Colcannon and Champion

Despite a sulphurous past, potatoes are still a staple at most meals, with traditional dishes remaining popular. Colcannon is a classic, comforting mash of potatoes, cabbage and butter, flavoured with spring onions.

Shepherd’s pie

This comforting main course, sometimes called cottage pie, is the cure for all those cold nights of the year. It is made with ground beef and vegetables, then topped with a creamy layer of mashed potatoes. It’s a great make-ahead dinner for St. Patrick’s Day.

Irish brown bread

The brown bread is made with stone-ground flour which gives it a nutty taste and a unique texture. Sometimes served with a stew, you can’t help but enjoy this exceptional bread.

Irish Pies

These handmade pies are common in most pubs in Northern Ireland. They are filled with minced pork or beef, potatoes and onions. Dip them in the gravy with chips for maximum enjoyment.
