Dia dhuit (Hello)
I’ve been getting messages about soda bread for St Paddy’s Day. I’m Irish. Chef J is an Irish American chef(~65%). We are wondering how much of the old country we should bring to the bakery this week.
Would there be interest in?
Barmbrack – a sweet cake with dried fruit. It’s usually served around Halloween. It’s kinda like King cake that you pull out a coin or a bean giving a prediction for your next year.
Boxty- Potato pancakes
Coddle inspired pie-potato, bacon, sausage, usually leftovers. We’d make a pot pie
Soda Bread- This is the one everyone is asking about, I did not grow up with this bread My family made Farl, soda bread cut in 4 made in a cast iron skillet. It’s closer to what Americans call English muffins.
Potato and caraway Bread- We’ll try this. We’ve never converted. Tell us if you want to try
Irish Brown Bread- We already make this one and are very pleased how it’s been embraced here in Indiana
Please tell us what you’d try
