Irish Stew

Many countries have their own version of this white stew, but the dish has become synonymous with Ireland. This version uses floury King Edward potatoes to thicken the sauce, and the Desiree potatoes are added closer to the end of cooking so they remain intact. This is a warming, wintery dish, which celebrates the glorious potato and woody winter herbs.
