Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Thermomix

Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is the day to eat, drink, and be Irish! It’s a global celebration that originates back to the 17th century to commemorate the life of St. Patrick, a patron Saint of Ireland, and his work in helping bring Christianity to the country. It is a special day to celebrate the rich heritage, culture, and tradition of the Irish with delicious food, festive parades, dancing, drinking, and good music.

However, St. Patrick’s Day looks a bit different this year due to the pandemic but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the celebration home. And it will be pretty simple with the help of Thermomix. We have prepared a delicious menu from our collection, “St. Paddy’s Day,” to help ring in the day, full of beloved and traditional Irish dishes. May the luck o’ the Irish be with ya!

 

Irish Coffee

 

Yes, Irish Coffee is really a thing. All you need is some hot coffee, Irish whiskey, and some cream to top it off!

The special drink was created during the winter of 1942 by a cook on the west coast of Ireland. Rumor has it, the drink was created to keep the guests awake and alert. Cheers to that!

 

 

Colcannon with Sausages and Guinness Gravy

 

Colcannon with Sausages and Guinness Gravy, or as the Irish like to call it, “Irish Bangers and Colcannon.” A traditional dish made up of potatoes (of course), kale, and sausages (or bangers).

The tasty dish got its name from the Gaelic word, “Cal Ceannann,” which means white-headed cabbage.

 

 

Cottage Pie

Have you ever had Cottage Pie? If not, you are definitely missing out! Luckily, we have the perfect recipe on Cookidoo for the best Cottage Pie. St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be complete without it!

Another beloved Irish dish, with a deep and delicious history. It came to be around the 18th century when the Irish had to be frugal with their money – they were searching for ways to use their leftovers and Irish Cottage Pie was born!

 

 

Whole Wheat Soda Bread

 

Soda Bread! Think soft and fluffy on the inside, with a crisp, golden exterior. What would St. Patrick’s Day be without soda bread? The difference between regular bread and soda bread is that it is made with baking soda instead of typical yeast.

Interested in the history behind it? It’s simple. During their financial crisis and with the introduction of baking soda in the United Kingdom, they decided to make the most out of the basic ingredients they had on hand to help save money.

 

Irish Coffee Cake with Whiskey Caramel Sauce

And of course, we had to save the dessert for last. Is there anything that screams “St. Patrick’s Day” more than Irish Coffee Cake with Whiskey Caramel Sauce?

After a long day of celebrations and tasty food, there isn’t a better way to end the night than with a bite of this coffee cake.
