St. Patrick’s Day Menus

Irish stew made with beef, potatoes, carrots and herbs. Traditional St.Patrick's day dish, stewed in dark Guinness beer

Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday celebrated by many. Everyone loves to get in on the party with both modern and traditional foods and drinks—especially those that highlight the color green!

  • Bar Snacks. Crispy baked potato skins with cheese and green onions, creamy potato soup served in soda bread bowls, beer cheese with raw vegetable crudite, and x all make fun appetizers.
  • Sides. Update colcannon, the comforting mashed potato-cabbage dish, by mixing in kale, fennel, fresh herbs, and green onions. Fortify potato boxty recipes with shredded Brussels sprouts, green onions, bacon, and cheese.
  • Entrées. Shepherd’s pie, lamb stew, corned beef and cabbage, …these are a few of the island nation’s classic recipes. Modernize your version with fennel, leeks, fresh peas, and pearl onions.
  • Beverages. Go beyond green beer and offer cocktails and mocktails that use fresh herbs, chile peppers, matcha tea, cucumbers, and fresh lime that add bold flavor and color to your drink menus.
  • Desserts. Yes, many Irish desserts start with Guinness and end with chocolate, but apples, blackberries, strawberries, and rhubarb are also popular, healthier ingredients served in cakes, tarts, and puddings.

Diners are increasingly hyper-focused on high-protein and plant-based foods. Alongside all of the new-fangled, lab-based, cell-cultured options out there is the humble bean. A staple food for millenia, beans are being re-examined as a healthy, versatile ingredient worthy of menu inclusion.

  • Retro and heirloom recipes—like Southern succotash, French cassoulet, and Cajun red beans and rice—fit the bill for those in search of authenticity.
  • Most world cuisines incorporate some type of bean in their classic dishes. Think feijoada in Brazil, black beans and rice with plantains in Puerto Rico, and garbanzo beans in Israel. Modern interpretations of these recipes are packed with produce and herbs.
  • The creamy texture of mung beans is proving an ideal substitute for those that are eliminating soy from their diets.
