Ireland is gearing up to embrace the return of St. Patrick’s Day 2023. The entire country will take to the streets to celebrate with parades, live music, dancing and a massive four-day festival. Because the holiday fortuitously falls on a Friday this year, Ireland has declared a long weekend to acknowledge the tough times endured during the pandemic. Likewise, the Italians are looking forward to reuniting once again to celebrate St. Joseph’s Day on the 19th, their national Father’s Day.
Our menu this week is a playful rendition of Irish and Italian recipes.
