Written by: Famous Foods | 2020-03-16 | no comments

St. Patrick’s Day is a day to celebrate the rich Irish culture and history with family and friends. Too often, simply cooking something green is enough to pass for festive during St. Patrick’s Day.

Imagine impressing your family and friends with authentic Irish dishes that look, smell, and taste amazing. Sure, this may seem like a pipe dream for those of us who are less than skilled in the kitchen. Luckily, there are a number of great and easy Irish dishes that anyone can make to impress this St. Patrick’s Day.

Soda Bread

Many cultures have their local variations on bread recipes. Soda bread is a classic Irish bread recipe that has been around for countless generations. This recipe is easy to tailor to your tastes and likes.

The thing that sets soda bread aside from other bread recipes is the lack of yeast. Instead, soda bread uses baking soda as the leavening agent that allows the bread to rise. Buttermilk is essential to any soda bread recipe as it contains acids that react with the baking soda.

Make a delicious soda bread just like Grandma with this delicious and easy to customize Grandma’s Irish Soda Bread recipe.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

For the main course of your Irish meal, try a traditional corned beef and cabbage recipe.

Corned beef is not a hybrid of corn and meat, but is actually a salt-cured meat that is common in multiple areas of the world. The term corned refers to the corns of salt that were traditionally used to treat the meat.

Famed food personality Tyler Florence has designed an easy to handle corned beef and cabbage recipe. Remember to start early and customize the spices to fit your taste pallets.
