I have been asked to do a kids cooking class to create Irish Potatoes. Given the recent St. Patrtick's holiday, I thought it interesting to splash some history into the class. However, I have come up empty on the origins of the Irish Potato. This cute, little confection resembles a potato and I am sure has a direct correlation to the Irish Potato Famine, but other than the obvious, I am coming up empty. Anybody?
