Funny thing, Americans are the ones that pull out all the stops for a St. Patrick’s day celebration. In Ireland, it’s a day that folks go to church do something with their families. Yet, I cannot argue that enjoying a day out on March 17th or the preceding weekend wasn’t a fun time in my youth. Now that I’m older and my kids are grown, the arrival of this holiday inspires me to cook Irish recipes.
I want to cook and enjoy a taste of Ireland in my quiet house. After visiting Ireland and falling absolutely in love with the charming cities and delicious food, I can. I made it a point to bring my little notebook anytime we stopped in a pub. When the dish came out I payed attention to the presentation, the garnishes of their take on Irish recipes. Then of course tried to figure out the seasonings.
Luckily, Irish food draws flavor from herbs and not many spices. Yes, I think I got pretty darn close with these. My book includes classics like Irish soda bread, Dublin coddle, and Guinness stew. Then of course I included the original recipe for Irish coffee. I guarantee you haven’t tried one like this!
With no further ado, enjoy my collection of Irish Recipes.
