St. Patrick’s Day was once a religious holiday centered around the patron saint of Ireland. Now, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of the Irish culture. Everyone is an honorary member of the Irish culture on March 17th. To celebrate, there is a heavy focus on the color of Ireland, green. Green is everywhere, and you may even get a pinch if you’re not wearing green. Food is one of the best ways to experience another culture and St. Patrick’s Day appetizers and foods can help you celebrate. Most recipes you’ll want to use will be Irish specific recipes. These recipes originated in Ireland either in the past or recently. However, not all recipes will originate in Ireland. Some of the recipes you use can be an American twist on an Irish dish. No matter which route you choose to go, the goal is to celebrate the Irish and maybe, they’ll pass on some of their luck to you.
St. Patrick’s Day appetizers, meals, desserts, snacks and more can help you get in touch with your inner Irish on March 17th.
