A St. Patrick's Day Feast

This Friday (admittedly one day after the actual holiday,) I shall be creating yet another feast at Off the Beaten Path Books, themed on the immediately proximal day of excess and Irish pride. Seeking to avoid the traditional perception of Irish food as bland, boiled stuff, I have come up with a menu fusing traditional recipes with modern presentations and sensibilities.

For those of you in the area, seats are still available, so head to the event page to purchase your seat now—$25 gets you the whole menu.

The menu will be as follows:

Cabbage and Roasted Fingerling Potato Salad

Soda Bread Crouton - Potato Crisp

Poached Pear - Goat Cheese - Oven-Baked Potato Cake
Mâche - Arugula

Colcannon - Soda Bread

Bread and Butter Pudding - Whiskey Sultanas
Whiskey Sauce - Blackcurrant Fool

"What butter and whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for."


  1. This sounds awesome, how much are tickets? (Couldn't find out from the OTBP site....)

  2. Tickets are $25. I'll put that in the article.

  3. Why am I reading this at suppertime? I wish I didn't live in the SW. This sounds fantastic!

  4. Autumn—

    Perhaps in the next couple years I'll come out thataways and do some kind of panel about food.


    Yes, yes they are. I really need to find a good, reliable source for fruit purées.


Your opinions and comments always are welcomed, but do be civil... this isn't a kitchen, after all.
