To answer the question - what will the Irish be eating on St. Paddy's Day? It boils down to a matter of preference. Many might respond, "Eat? I,ll just be drowning my shamrock." Although many restaurants in Ireland will serve Corned Beef and Cabbage on March 17, but most of them will do so just to please the tourists. The truth is, most Irish people nowadays see corned beef as something that is heavily processed and comes out of a can! Historically, beef was a delicacy enjoyed only by Ireland's wealthy. Cattle were originally kept for their milk, and sheep for their wool. This left old hens and pigs as the more likely contenders for the pot. When the Irish emigrated to Canada and America, where both salt and meat were cheaper, they treated beef the same way they would have treated pork or bacon at home in Ireland: they soaked it to draw off the excess salt, then braised it with cabbage. From here, the many versions of corned beef and cabbage that exist today have evolved. So what will people in Ireland be eating on St. Patrick's Day? Most will start the day with a good old Irish Breakfast: fried rashers of bacon, fried sausage, fried black pudding, fried tomato, and a fried egg. If that's not enough, you can always go one step further and have an Ulster Fry. It is the bread that makes it special: fried potato bread made out of yesterday's leftover spuds and fried soda farls to boot. Oh, and don't forget that pint of Guinness beside it, just for good measure. Irish Stew will figure highly in many restaurants and homes, as broths and stews are the cornerstone of Irish gastronomy. Because Irish stew is so wholesome and unpretentious, there is no disputing that it is still one of the best casserole dishes in the entire world. Everyone knows that the Irish have an ongoing love affair with the potato. They talk about last year's potatoes, this season's potatoes, great potato vintages--people in Ireland talk about potatoes the way the French talk about wine. Potatoes dishes such as Colcannon and Irish Champ , therefore, are always popular choices. Colcannon comes from the Gaelic word cole, meaning "cabbage." Cabbage that has been cooked in milk is blended with buttery mashed potatoes. It is traditionally served in a fluffy pile with a sort of well in the centre that is filled with even more melted butter for dipping each forkful into. Champ is more favored in the Northern counties of Ireland. It is equally heavenly in taste; the only difference is it is made with scallions.

whole wheat irish soda bread with bulgur  Print Recipe

Serves: 12

Preparation time:30 minutes

Cooking time:1 hour

120 grams (about 3/4 cup) medium (#2) bulgur
1 cup boiling water
460 grams (about 3 2/3 cups) whole wheat flour
8 grams baking soda (1 1/2 teaspoons)
10 grams salt (about 1 1/2 teaspoons)
2 cups buttermilk (more as needed) 1. Place the bulgur in a bowl and pour on 1 cup boiling water, or enough to cover the bulgur by about 1/2 inch. Cover the bowl and allow the bulgur to sit for 30 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed and the grains are tender.
2. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a 9 inches round cast iron pan or a baking sheet with parchment.
3. Place the flour in a large, wide bowl and sift in the baking soda and salt. Mix in with your hands or with a wide spatula. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour in the buttermilk. Add the bulgur to the well, then mix in the flour from the sides of the bowl to the center using a wide rubber spatula, a wide wooden spoon or your hands, turning the bowl and sweeping the flour from the sides into the buttermilk. Mix until the bulgur and buttermilk have been incorporated into the flour, then scrape out onto a lightly floured work surface. The dough should be soft and a bit sticky. Flour your hands so it won’t stick to them.
4. Gently knead the dough, only enough to shape it into a ball, then with floured hands gently pat it down to a 2-inch high round, about 9 inches in diameter. Place it on the parchment-lined cast-iron pan or baking sheet and cut a 1/2-inch deep cross across the top.
5. Place in the oven and bake 20 minutes at 450 degrees. Turn down the heat to 375 degrees and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the loaf responds with a hollow sound when tapped on the bottom. Remove from the oven, wrap loosely in a cloth or kitchen towel, and cool on a rack.

Colcannon cakes  Print Recipe

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time:20 minutes

1 1/2 pounds mealy potatoes
3 cups thinly sliced Savoy cabbage
1/4 cup light cream
salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits and softened

1 Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1-inch pieces. In a saucepan cover the potatoes with salted water and simmer them, covered, for 15 minutes, or until they are tender. While the potatoes are simmering, in a steamer set over boiling water steam the cabbage for 5 minutes, or until it is tender. Drain the potatoes in a colander, force them through a ricer or the medium disk of a food mill into a bowl, and stir in the cream, the cabbage, and salt and pepper to taste.

2. Fry the onion in the butter over a moderate heat until it is soft and beginning to brown.

3. Using a spatula, press half the potato and cabbage mixture in an even layer on to the onion and fry for 4-5 minutes until it is well browned and crispy underneath.

4. Cut the mixture into 4 quarters with the spatula or palette knife and turn them over carefully so that the crispy bit is uppermost. Press the remaining potato and cabbage mixture on to the first layer and after a few more minutes, cut and turn again.
5. When the bottom is again browned, you will have a crispy top, a crispy bottom, and a crispy layer in the middle.

Irish whiskey cake  Print Recipe

Serves: 16

Preparation time:15 minutes

Cooking time:1 hour 30 minutes

one 18.5-ounce package yellow cake mix
1 (3 5/8-ounce) box vanilla instant pudding mix (see note)
1/2 cup whole or low-fat milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Irish whiskey
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (4 ounces) coarsely chopped black walnuts
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup Irish whiskey
1 tablespoon water For the cake: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a 10-inch tube pan, preferably nonstick, or bundt pan with nonstick cooking oil spray.

Combine the cake and pudding mixes in a small bowl.

Combine the milk, oil and whiskey in the bowl of a stand mixer or hand-held electric mixer; beat on low speed until mixed well. Add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth, then add the beaten eggs in several additions until well combined. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes until slightly thickend. Turn off the motor and add the walnuts, stirring by hand. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 75 to 90 minutes, being careful not to let it get too brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool in the pan.

For the glaze: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar, whiskey and water, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Pour one-third of the glaze over the hot cake in the pan. Let cool on the wire rack for 1 hour, then remove from the pan and invert so the cake is upside down on a plate; pour one-third of the glaze over the cooled cake, then cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 days. The next day, unwrap the cake, invert onto a second plate and pour half of the remaining glaze over the cake; recover tightly with plastic wrap; this process allows the glaze to flavor the cake evenly. On the next day, repeat the process, using the remaining glaze.

Irish whiskey date cake  Print Recipe

Serves: 10

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Cooking time:35 minutes

For the cake:
¾ pound dates, pitted and chopped
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ pound (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1½ tablespoons baking powder

For the sauce:
10 oz (2½ sticks) unsalted butter

¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 tablespoons Irish whiskey
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 cups Sweetened whipped cream, for serving Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9 x 2-inch round cake pan.

Place the dates in a deep saucepan with 1¾ cups of water. Bring to boil, stirring a little to break up the dates. Allow to simmer 1 minute. Off the heat, stir in the baking soda (it will bubble up!). Set aside.

Meanwhile, in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and granulated sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, add the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla, scraping down the mixing bowl. (It may look curdled.) Combine the flour and salt and, with the mixer still on low, slowly add it to the batter. With the mixer on low, add the hot date mixture in two batches to the batter, scraping down the bowl. The batter will be runny but don't worry! Stir in the baking powder, which will also bubble up. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Meanwhile, combine the butter, brown sugar, heavy cream and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 minute. Off the heat, stir in the bourbon and vanilla and pour into a 2-cup heat-proof glass measuring cup. Set aside.

As soon as the cake is done, poke holes all over it with a toothpick. Pour one cup of the sauce evenly over the cake while still warm and allow it to soak in for 30 minutes. Turn the cake out bottom side up onto a flat serving plate and pour one more cup sauce on top. Cool completely.
