It’s that time of year where everyone claims to be a little bit Irish – yes a great, great grandma on your dad’s side does count – and therefore, spends all day drinking. Hey we don’t make the rules. Sadly lockdown restrictions will still be in place for St Paddy’s Day, so whilst you can’t have pints of the black stuff at the pub you can still celebrate at home with these deliveries.
Robin Gill x StarChefs
After teaming up with Andrew Wong for Chinese New Year, StarChefs is back with another big collab for St Patrick’s Day. Robin Gill has created a four course menu inspired by his experience of growing up in Ireland, with dishes including Cork Gubbean & smoked haddock gougères, Secret Smokehouse salmon with soda bread & wild Atlantic seaweed butter, beef & bone marrow pie in a cast-iron skillet with mash & pot-roast cabbage, and Pump Street chocolate mousse with whisky caramel. It would be St Paddy’s Day without a little tipple, so the box also includes two Redbreast Old Fashioned cocktails and some extra 12 year old Redbreast whiskey on the side.
Available for nationwide delivery from 17th – 20th March 2021
Bleecker Black Kit
The Bleecker Black burger is BACK, and it being 2021 it’s coming to you in a meal kit format. Each box contains four 45-day dry-aged Bleecker beef patties, four American cheese slices, two sesame buns, Clonakilty black pudding and a bottle of Bleecker house sauce. This fan fave has been off the Bleecker menu since 2017 and it’s only coming back for St Paddy’s Day so you’d better be quick if you wanna get your hands on it once again.
Available for nationwide delivery, order by 12th March for delivery on 17th March 2021
Hop House 13
Hop House 13 has teamed up with three Irish chefs – Myrtle’s Anna Haugh, Tacos Padre’s Nick Fitzgerald and Allegra’s Patrick Powell – for their St Paddy’s Day Dublin Born and Brewed Box. Anna’s done scampi & chips, Nick has created a crispy fried crubeen bun and Patrick’s dish is a fried black pudding burger, and of course you get beers in there too. 20% of all sales of this box are being donated to Hospitality Action so you’ll be doing a good deed by tucking into this one.
Available for nationwide delivery, order by 10th March for delivery on 17th March 2021
Aubrey Allen Irish Steak & Cheese Box
Stock up on the essentials – meat and cheese – for St Patrick’s Day with this box from butchers Aubrey Allen. As well as big ol’ Irish grass-fed bone-in ribeye steak, there’s Clonakilty black pudding, free range bcaon and sausages, Mossfield organic cheese and Blue Crozier cheese in there. That’ll keep you going for a while.
Available for nationwide delivery between 11th – 20th March 2021
Mann’s Got Munch Beef, Black Pudding & Pickled Onion Pie
Yes this isn’t technically a delivery but what better reason to get busy in the kitchen than to make a banging pie that’s perfect for St Patrick’s Day. As our recipe queen Sophie says, “slow-cooked melt-in-the-mouth beef, earthy black pudding, and sweet baby pickled onions to cut through the richness is a match made in heaven. I use a combination of shop-bought shortcrust and puff pastry to save you the faff of making your own and if you’re extra like me then why not grab some bone marrow from your local butcher to give it that lil’ extra summin summin; I mean who doesn’t love bone marrow!”
