Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

Even if you don’t wear green or watch a parade on March 17th, you pick up a green bagel or some Irish soda bread, and end the day with wine and Irish cheeses, a green cocktail or an Irish Coffee.

Or, you can make a traditional Irish recipe, or an Irish-themed recipe, for brunch, lunch or dinner. This year, St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday, affording time to cook.

In our book “Irish-themed” comprises any authentic Irish food, or anything colored green, from Appletinis and Broccoli Salad to Chocolate Mint ice cream.

If you only have time for a drink: Irish whiskey, Guinness and other Irish beers, or a Irish cream liqueur with after-dinner coffee.
