Recipes Inspired by St. Patrick

January 1st, 1970 |


Terry McCoy is a renowned Irish Chef and Proprietor of the Redbank Guesthouse in Skerries, County Dublin. Since moving to Skerries more than 40 years ago, he was fascinated by the story of St. Patrick. Although St. Patrick is Ireland’s best known patron saint, much myth and mystery surrounds his life. For starters, St. Patrick was not even Irish!

In retirement, Terry decided to combine his love of food and cooking with his fascination with St. Patrick. The result is “Saint Patrick’s Plate: Food inspired by the Saint and his Saga”, a unique cookbook. McCoy attempts to imagine the recipes that would have been used in the 5th century
