“Next month marks one year since the triple crisis — theearthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident — pummeled Japan. But concerns about food safety in the aftermath of the nuclear accident have hampered recovery of regions like Tohoku — a prime producer of seafood, delicacies like miso paste, and sake. So Andoh decided to help by raising money doing what she does best: publishing a cookbook.”
St. Patrick’s day is a celebratory religious feast day and anniversary of the patron saints death in the fifth century. This holiday has been observed for over 1,000 years. Falling during the Christian Lent season, Irish families traditionally went to church services in the morning and would party in the afternoon. The Lenten tradition of not eating meat were relaxed so people could eat, drink, dance, and be merry. The customary meal of the day was a plate of Irish bacon and cabbage.
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world. The Irish have made their mark in just about every region of the globe. They even celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the Caribbean to honor all the Irish that came as indentured servants and immigrants. Enjoy a round up of many things epicurean Irish.
