Dia dhuit! Toisc go bhfuil sé Lá fhéile Pádraig agus seachtaine ná gaeilge, cheap mé go bhfuil sé am le beagán de Ghaeilge anseo. San cistin Killarney Park hotel tá muid beagnach réidh le lá fhéile Pádraig. Bhí an stobhach Gaelach ag cócaireacht go mall an lá go lear, go hiomlán le uaineoil áitiúil agus luibheanna úr. San alt taosráin tá níos mó ná cúig chéad brioscaí, atá cosúil le bratach Éireannach, réidh agus beidh siad dháileadh ag an pharáid agus le gach cupán tae is caife amarach.Tá dessert speisialta reidh freisin, le cupla píosaí beaga Eireannach – maróg úlla, panacotta bláthach, císte baileys agus uachtar reoite Guinness.
Bain taitneamh as an lá agus bí cinnte féachaint anseo arís chun pictiúirí a fheicail!
Hello! As it is Saint Patrick’s day and the beginning of Seachtaine na Gaeilge, I thought it was time to introduce a little Irish our blog :). Here in the kitchen we are almost ready for St Patrick’s day, the Irish stew has been cooking slowly all day, full of beautiful local lamb and fresh herbs and vegetables. In the pastry section there are more than five hundred pistachio and orange cookies shaped like Irish flags, ready and waiting to be handed out outside the hotel during the parade and with every cup of tea and coffee served. We also have a very special Irish themed assiette for dessert of the day- warm baked apple pudding, buttermilk and vanilla panacotta, Baileys and butterscotch gateaux and creamy Guinness icecream.
As promised here is the recipe for our flag cookies:
Cream flour 400g
Unsalted butter 200g
icing sugar 120g
orange zest of 1
pistachio paste 30g
orange food colouring
- Cream butter and sugar, until they are pale
- add one egg and mix
- fold in flour
- repeat this with remaining flour and egg
- divide your mixture into three pieces
- add the pistachio paste to one third, zest and food colouring to one third and leave the remaining third plain
- line a square baking tin with greaseproof paper
- spread the pistachio mixture into the tin as evenly as possible. Place into the refrigerator for 15 minutes
- repeat this with the plain (white) and orange mixtures
- turn the mixture out of the tin. Cut into rectangular pieces.
- cook in a moderate oven (170oC) for 7 minutes
- cool on the tray and enjoy
Enjoy St Patrick’s day and be sure to visit here soon to see pictures!
