In his well-researched and beautifully illustrated The Country Cooking of Ireland, Colman Andrews offers a version of this celebrated Irish potato dish from Nenagh, in County Tipperary, toward the southern end of the country. Colcannon is a St. Patrick’s Day favorite. Traditionally, the potatoes are mashed with butter and milk and then wilted cabbage and herbs are mixed in. Using curly kale instead of cabbage is another classic variation—and my favorite.
