I found this wickedly delicious-sounding recipe for a really creamy colcannon in the March 2005 edition of the BBC Good Food magazine. It is a part of Irish cook Kevin Dundon's suggested St Patrick's Day dinner menu. As he says, 'Side dishes don't come more Irish than creamy colcannon'. I really like the sound of his colcannon, because of its decadent creaminess, because Savoy cabbage is so much tastier than other varieties and because this is certainly my favourite way to cook cabbage: with bacon rather than boiled in water. Sounds like an any-time-of-year dish to me! Well I shan't be waiting until 17 March 2006 before making it anyway!
