St. Patrick's Day

Green beer? We're not above raising a glass to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but anyone who loves food knows the real St. Patrick's day party happens in the kitchen. St. Patrick's Day recipes are generally hearty and flavorful -- dishes that celebrate Ireland's storied history with potatoes and lamb. Perhaps no Irish recipe is as iconic as corned beef and cabbage: juicy hunks of beef tinted pink by curing salt and flavored with a savory blend of spices, then paired with a side of buttery, tender cabbage. Don't forget the Irish potato recipes: boiled new potatoes tossed with butter are delicious, or opted for mashed potatoes with scallions (called "champ") or with chopped cabbage (colcannon). Or maybe you're a fan of thick, rich Irish stew made with slow-simmered lamb and chunks of carrot, celery and onion. Whatever's on the menu, be sure to pair it with a fresh-baked slice of soda bread - this classic Irish bread is ideal for sopping up the delicious juices at the bottom of the bowl.
