Potatoes. That’s what often comes to mind when one thinks of Ireland but what you may not know is the Emerald Isle is quickly becoming a very popular foodie destination. In Ireland, sheep and cows graze outside for 12 months of the year in herby pastures supplying the most beautiful meat, cheese, cream and butter. In addition, Ireland’s seafood is like no other – clean, tidal waters provide the best mussels, langoustines, salmon and more!

At recent Tourism Ireland event in Toronto, #TeamGC had the pleasure of meeting famed Irish Chef, Clodagh McKenna, and feasting on an incredible meal that highlighted her rustic take on modern Irish food.

What we found was that everything was fresh, delicious, thoughtful and seasonal. We also realised that Clodagh’s entire menu from start to finish that night was pretty much the best #MenuInspo that anyone could ask for in the lead up to Thanksgiving.

See below for all 5 must-try recipes from Clodagh McKenna that are perfect for a not-so-traditional, Irish-inspired Thanksgiving meal. Don’t worry,  “cabbage and potatoes” are not included.
