To celebrate St. Patty’s Day on the 17th, why not dare yourself to try something new? The following meal will certainly ring true with the following Irish saying; “There are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were.” Potatoes and onions from your garden served up with some great ale and you’ll have the ‘luck of the Irish’!
- Beef in Guinness – beer in stew cooked slowly with garden veggies
- Dublin Coddle – or sausage & bacon stew
- Boxty – a traditional potato dish best celebrated with the rhyme: “Boxty on the griddle, boxty in the pan, If you can’t make boxty, you’ll never get your man”
- Irish Coffee – mmmm coffee, cream, sugar & whisky
- Porter Cake – stout Irish beer & dried fruit cake best out of the oven!
