Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

List of viewable recipes from "The Country Cooking of Ireland" by Colman Andrews

Recipe from The Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews (Chronicle Books, 2009)

Nominated for a 2011 IACP Cookbook Award in the International category. For a list of all the finalists check out the our IACP Finalists' Guide.

ImageThere isn't usually any colcannon left over when Mary Ward makes up a batch, but if there is, her husband, Peter, likes to fry up these cakes to serve along good Irish bacon and black pudding for breakfast.

2 cups leftover Colcannon (see recipe here)
2/3 cup/65 g white flour
4 Tbsp butter
Salt and pepper

Combine the colcannon and the flour in a medium bowl, mixing together well. Form the mixture into 6 cakes of equal size, about 3/4 in/2 cm thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper if necessary.

Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, then fry cakes on both sides, turning once and pressing down lightly on them with a spatula, until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.

Serves 6
