Like many, I too have a history of spending this holiday in a bar drinking green beer, occasionally quite early in the morning. However, I have a much longer history of eating corned beef and cabbage (well, let’s face it, just corned beef) and running through the McDonald’s drive-thru so everyone had a Shamrock Shake. All that said, this isn’t a holiday that most people celebrate around the dinner table, celebrating over a traditional feast.
Think of Thanksgiving, Easter brunch, and Christmas dinner – all celebrated with those foods you wait for all year long. Now think of St. Patrick’s Day. Other than the boring and not-quite-authentic corned beef and cabbage, there isn’t much to feast on. However, I think we can change that.
Check out this new column for FEAST Magazine, in which I introduce “What We’re Cooking” with an Irish feast of Live Springs Farm pork shoulder, rubbed with fennel then braised in Schlafly Irish Stout, served alongside YellowTree Farm Japanese white sweet potatoes and onion. Just in time for your St. Paddy’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
