TOP 5 IRISH RECIPES FOR SAINT PATRICKS DAY!

Hi Bold Bakers!

For obvious reasons Saint Patrick’s Day is near and dear to my heart. Not only do I have fond memories of going to the parade in Ireland but also of the traditional food we would have around this time. Today, I’m excited to share my Top 5 Irish Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day.

Ireland is known for the amazing produce we have available to us. Although the rain can seems like a curse at times, it is a blessing for animals to graze on such lush green grass. This in turn makes the animals very happy, and happy animals means delicious butter, cheese and meat.

I consider myself lucky to have grown up in Ireland. I am an eighties baby so luckily when I was young there were no iPads and iPhones to be glued to. With 4 other siblings we spent our days outside in fields, making huts, horse riding and so on. They were pretty innocent times that we were fortunate to have.

Being from a large family meant my mum cooked a lot. She is an amazing cook. My dad wasn’t one for leftovers so my mum would make new dinners every single night. She never did things by halves either. The same care and attention is still put into every meals today as she did back then.

As a young child I followed my mum around the kitchen watching while she baked. Some of my earliest memories are actually food memories. She always had us help out in the kitchen. We did jobs that little hands were good at like standing at the mixer as egg whites whipped for pavlova, slowly adding in spoonful after spoonful of sugar as instructed. She had us down on the kitchen floor with a rolling pin and digestive biscuits in a bag bashing them until you got crumbs. Food is a big part of my culture and I use the same traditions and techniques I have carried with me to this day.

love the scones….I developed also the love for the “clotted cream” that is served with them when I was in Europe. However it is nearly impossible to find here. I found some in a Whole Foods once, but it was very expensive and not as good as you find in Europe. Do you have a recipe for clotted cream that does not involve hunting down a farmer who will sell you unpasteurized cream? I just love that whip cream/butter flavor. thanks.

Please post some authentic, traditional Irish recipes for St. Patrick’s ie: Irish stew.

What would your family typically eat on St. Patrick’s is what I am interested in.

Thanks for all other great recipes.
