History of Boxty:
Boxty is an authentic Irish dish which originated in the 1700s. It was a staple food in Irish households where potatoes were relied upon to survive. Blight during the famine destroyed the potato crop and affected the consumption of Boxty. After this period however it regained its popularity and to this day is eaten regularly in many households across the country especially in the north west. There are many different variations of Boxty, we believe our flavoursome traditional pan is the best.
“Boxty on the griddle, Boxty on the Pan, if you can’t make Boxty, you’ll never get a man”– Folk rhyme
Nowadays There are plenty of ways to enjoy a pan of Boxty including using it as a wrap, panini, pizza base or in a tasty breakfast.
