Fruity Soda Bread-
Soda bread is traditional Irish grub perfect for St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Instead of serving plain soda bread treat your guests to a fruity version. Use any sort of dried fruit, a mix selection is usually a good option, and simply add it to the soda bread dough.
I like to serve my fruity soda bread with butter and or a sweet jam which is a good choice if you’re catering for children too.
Irish Cheese Board-
Whatever the occasion, a cheese board is undoubtedly the best way to end an evening of food and drink. For St Patrick’s Day I’ll be using a selection of Irish Chesses from my local deli “Brown and Green”, located in Trentham Gardens, as it specialises in all sorts of seasonal treats.
If like me you’re going for Irish cheeses I’d recommend using Coolea an Gouda style cheese, Adrahan which is soft with a rind and Coolea a traditional Gouda cheese; all Irish and all delicious.
