Let us help you host a perfect St. Patrick’s Day gathering or prepare just the right dish if you’re attending someone else’s event. We like to put contemporary spins on classic faves and explore new ways to celebrate traditional occasions.
Our CultureWaves insights team sees multiple examples of modern takes on traditional Irish cuisine, such as dishes incorporating smoked meats, fish and regional vegetables. Also, using Irish flavors and ingredients to create decadent desserts and drinks.
The beauty of traditional Irish flavors is that they give food enthusiasts and chefs alike a rich palate from which to work, with endless combination possibilities.
We offer three fun, and delicious, new recipes from the Food Channel Kitchens that put a very contemporary spin on St. Patrick’s Day entertaining, followed by a curation of some of our other favorite St. Pat’s recipes.
Fresh Irish Spring Roll
We’ve flipped the script on the heavier Irish egg roll by turning them inside out, with cabbage as the carrier for all the corned beef goodness inside! Here’s the Irish Spring Roll recipe.

Die-hard nacho fans can dip into this cool Food Channel take on traditional nachos, made with kettle chips, and smothered in Irish ale cheese sauce with bacon, jalapenos, smashed avocado, and zesty chive and sea-salt seasoned sour cream.
