St. Patrick’s Day Menu

St. Patrick's Day meal

St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in Paula’s hometown of Savannah. For nearly 200 years, the city’s Irish Heritage organizations have held a parade through the historic streets, and the city’s Forsyth Fountain is dyed green for the day. Citizens from all across Savannah come out to celebrate all things Irish.

Whether or not your town puts on a celebration, you can still enjoy the festivities of the day with a hearty meal of Irish-inspired dishes, complete with two decadent desserts to indulge in. Sláinte (good health)! 

Get your party started with bite-size appetizers of Mini Shepherd’s Pies.
