Owner Cindy Washburn said she and her husband, Steve, plan to discuss the misconceptions of Irish cuisine and the difference in Irish-American foods at the free demonstration.
For example, she said, many people think corned beef and cabbage originated from Ireland, but it’s an Irish-American dish. The corned-beef twist came from Irish immigrants shopping at Jewish delis in New York during the early 1900s.
“The average Irish family wouldn’t even consider making it,” Washburn said.
She also plans to prepare an authentic potato soup, and Irish bacon and ham for attendees to taste.
The Oxford Hall and Celtic Shop sells imported foods from Ireland and Britain, teas and baked goods.
