Celebrate St. Patrick at Irish Potluck in March
St. Margaret’s Global Cuisine Potluck Saturday, March 10, will focus on Irish specialties. Think meat and potatoes, oat cakes, cabbage and more potatoes. Organizer Elaine Bielenberg is busy lining up Celtic fiddlers to entertain us. Dinner is at 6.
Recipes for Irish corn bread, oatcakes and soda bread, Colcannon, Parsnip and Apple Soup, Boxty ( potato pancake), Coddle (a bacon, potato and onion dish), Beef in Guinness, Steak and Kidney Pie and Ham Steaks with Whiskey Sauce are on the Time and Talent Table in the Parish Hall.
There are also dessert recipes. Among them: Irish Chocolate Cake (probably “Irish” because ingredients include mashed potatoes) and Country Rhubarb Cake. Help yourself to any of the recipes or add one of your own for others to try.
We encourage you to bring a few friends with you to dinner, especially those who like to cook. Remember to bring your own beverages. Come a bit early if your dish needs to be reheated or assembled. And, as always, non-cooks are welcome to help us clean up.
