Guinness Recipe in the Kitchen for St. Patrick’s

St Patrick’s Day has always been about the time to get out and about with your mates, celebrating with a pint of GUINNESS. And with its month long celebration this year, why not create a food feast, too? With the right recipes, you’ll be able to gather your friends and family around the table and as you serve up a fantastic spread, you’ll wow them with your culinary skills using the ‘black stuff’.

GUINNESS’ in-house chef, Justin O’Connor, has shared 14 easy-to-make recipes, each of which makes use of the complex flavour of the stout in a unique way. In addition to lunch and dinner dishes, Justin has also produced delicious recipes for sweet cakes, brownies and candies, proving just how versatile cooking with GUINNESS can be.

Some of Justin’s recipes are brand new, while others have been sourced from the GUINNESS archive detailing how GUINNESS has been used as an ingredient in cooking over 250 years. Some of the mouth-watering recipes include, Lamb Kebabs with Guinness Marinade, Guinness Chocolate Brownies, Irish Lamb Stew and Guinness Chocolate Mousse.

Justin, executive chef, GUINNESS Storehouse, comments:
‘GUINNESS is ideal for cooking because it contains several discrete flavours that bring other ingredients to life. I use its sweetness in cakes, brownies and ice cream, its salt flavour to compliment meat in stews and its citrus note gives a zing to food like pork chops’. Added to this, the unique colour and texture of the stout is put to good use in the rack of lamb recipe, providing it with a glossy finish similar to wine’.

Finally, if you are looking for a special aperitif to serve as part of your GUINNESS themed night in, why not mix up a Black Velvet Royale. A unique twist on the classic Black Velvet cocktail, the Black Velvet Royale consists of GUINNESS, Champagne and a splash of Cassis and is the perfect accompaniment to help revellers celebrate in style this St Patrick’s Day.

For those of you who want to try some of these mouth watering dishes but just want it served up in a nice platter all ready to be digged in, don’t fret. Choose from our list of outlets participating in the month long Guinness St Patrick’s celebrations!
