St. Patrick’s Day Food

We are just a couple of days away from St. Patrick’s Day, which will be celebrated on Thursday, March 17. St. Patrick’s Day pays respect to Ireland, and celebrations are held in the country, many people in the United States also pay respect, especially due to the large number of Irish people who migrated to the country many years ago.

Who was St. Patrick?

The celebrations on March 17 first began back in 1631, when the Church created a Feast Day in respect to St. Patrick. Having been the Patron Saint of Ireland, he died around the fifth century, which means that his passing came 12 centuries prior to the modern version of the holiday first being observed.

St. Patrick’s Day Traditional Foods

Every March 17th, people gather to pay respect to the Irish patron saint with parades, parties, pints of Guinness beer, and all the wonderful traditional foods of the Emerald Isle. Here are a few food items.

  • Guinness Beef Stew– Corned beef is okay, but we honestly would rather turn that roast into this hearty stew. Don’t sleep on the stout though—it adds a ton of flavor.
  • Irish Soda BreadPair that stew with this traditional quick bread. It’s hearty, easy to make, and perfect for sopping up bits of sauce.
  • Flat White Martini- A combo of Bailey’s, espresso, and vodka, this stiff pick-me-up is just the thing after a heavy meal. Sláinte!
  • Shamrock Soda Bread- A heart-shaped cookie cutter helps turn traditional Irish quick bread into a fun shamrock shape.
  • Shepherd’s Pies with LambAlso called a cottage pie, this delicious country dish has been a staple in Ireland for generations.
