Cocannon is a traditional Irish dish consisting of potatoes, cabbage, onion, garlic and a few other ingredients, which are all cooked gently until tender combined and placed in a hot oven to bake until golden.

Champ is also a traditional Irish dish but Champ is a mash consisting of potatoes, spring onions, butter, milk and seasoning.

The difference between the two dishes is that Cocannon contains cabbage and is baked, whereas Champ does not contain cabbage and is mashed then served.
