On March 17, raise a merry toast (and a fork!) to the Irish. St. Patrick's Day reminds us that true Irish cooking celebrates not just corned beef and cabbage, but Ireland's rich farmhouse cheeses, wild fruits and berries, hearty vegetables, and incomparable seafood, lamb, and livestock. Modern chefs have devised Irish recipes with a fresh approach, taking a lighter hand with new dishes and traditional dishes as well. Sample the fare with our Irish Recipe Collection, below.
As they say in Ireland: Bain taitneamh as do bhéile! Bon appetit!
What goes better with brew than brew-cooked food? That is, snacks made from ale, stout and lagers. For St. Patrick's Day or anytime you're feelin' a wee bit of the Irish, try serving some of these traditional brew-based treats to your favorite leprechauns—they'll consider themselves lucky, indeed!
Take a taste of the Irish FlavorPrint, and conjure up a dish of Irish Hens with Bacon and Cabbage.
Bain taitneamh as do bhéile!
May your appetite be good!
