Irish Soda Bread - This is the perfect "crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside" bread recipe. In the mid-1800s Ireland did not have a strong tradition of making yeast breads. Once baking soda was introduced to the country, it pretty much replaced yeast. Baking soda worked well with Irish flour and was a guaranteed rise in the oven.
Irish Stew- This traditional dish can be made with a variety of different meats, but the most commonly used is lamb. It was formally known as a filling peasant dish that was made with the cheap, readily-available ingredients. As the Irish heritage made its way over to America, the recipe evolved and adapted.
Shepard's Pie - This dish is also known as Cottage Pie. Back in the day, this dish was made to use up leftover roasted meat and was lined/topped with mashed potato. This was big back in 1791, when the potato was first introduced as an edible crop.
Irish Potato Cakes - These cakes are different from the well-known Irish dish "Boxty". Irish Potato Cakes are made from cooked potatoes where Boxty is made from raw potatoes. In Ireland, Irish Potato Cakes are also called potato bread or spid bread and are typically served at breakfast time.
Guinness Cake - Of course, it wouldn't be a proper dinner with a little something sweet! This Irish treat will be the perfect way to end your St. Patty's Day meal! This recipe proves that beer is not just for drinking; it is also the perfect Irish touch to a chocolatey dessert!
