Thanksgiving in the US has past, and many are still savoring “leftovers” from huge family dinners. I never really liked the term “leftover” as it carries a negative connotation, as if the food has lost some value somehow. I like to use the term “makeover”, implying that yesterday’s fabulous meal will taste even better today with a few touches, and more love added in. I often find that many dishes take on new lives when enjoyed the second time around. Today’s dish is a prime example. Colcannon (a mashed mixture of potatoes and cabbage) is sinfully delightful when made into Colcannon cakes. This is definitely a Lord D favorite.
A culinary historian and Downton fan (not officially connected to the Show or its producers) fascinated by the fine, yet simple food of the post Edwardian period of Downton Abbey. Great food has a history and connects us with our past. Wouldn't it be lovely to add a touch of elegance to your Abbey?
