Champ (Irish Potatoes)
No matter where you eat in Ireland, a bowl of champ is on the menu. And, it is delicious! Plus, there are so many variations on the dish. Here is the basic recipe for you to start with.

Beef and Guinness Stew
Nowadays the Guinness is used increasingly in cooking. It is a tasty addition to stews and casseroles, helping to tenderize the meat and imparting its distinctive malty flavor to any dish. This recipe makes a wonderful gutsy stew which tastes even better a day or two after it is made.

Sticky Fingers Irish Soda Bread
Sure, you can whip up a batch of Soda Bread from scratch, but this mix borders on effortless. All you need to do is add water and spoon it into a prepared pan. After 40 minutes in the oven, your soda bread will have a deep golden crust, and an intoxicating sweet oaty scent will fill the kitchen.

The Emerald Cocktail
A great way to escape the green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. This version of The Emerald is quite enjoyable. It’s smooth, mellow, and improves with the quality of the whiskey.

Irish Coffee
A warm glass of Irish Coffee…it is such a simple recipe, but so satisfying to drink. We recommend freshly-brewed coffee and some decent whiskey.

Begin your weekend with this warming spiked Hot Chocolate with Guinness, Whiskey, and Baileys. So, this recipe has a couple more steps, but they are well worth the effort.
