This week we travel to Ireland on Native, as host Briana Kurtz chats with Irish chef, TV personality, cookbook author and director of a new cookery school, Clodagh McKenna. Coming all the way from Dublin, Clodagh gives us a picture of the culinary landscape in Ireland, both past and present. Hear about some of the gastronomic trends (lamb) and traditions (bacon and cabbage) that define the iconic country. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.



“Lamb in Ireland is really taking its own in the moment. The different peninsula’s are owning it.” [18:00]


“99% of houses in Ireland will be eating spring lamb on Easter Sunday.” [30:00]


“When bacon and cabbage is done well, it’s brilliant.” [31:00]
