The Kitchen Mouse's Irish Menu

Originally published March 15, 1984

Gaelic tradition insists that St. Patrick be credited not only with driving the snakes out of Ireland, but with introducing the art of distilling to the Emerald Isle. If that be so, then Irish coffee devotees should lift their mugs (or stemmed goblets) to brim, for Erin’s whiskey is the drink’s soul.

Here is the menu which we put together about seven years ago for a group of 40 couples in our Gourmet Club.

Irish Coffee
Potato Soup
Entrée - Irish Stew with Oatmeal Dumplings
Dessert - Steamed Raisin Pudding with Irish Whiskey Sauce
Wine - Medium dry Sherry or Madeira
