This year, St Patrick's Day, Wednesday 17 March, is very much an at-home affair. But you can still get some excellent St Patrick's-inspired and Irish meals delivered to you (and some Guinness and whiskey, of course). We round up some of the best. Plus - check out our 2021 Murphia List, celebrating the Irish talent working in London's food & drink scene.
The Dublin Born and Brewed box (Nationwide delivery - £65) is a team-up between Hop House 13 and three London Irish chefs. There are scampi and chips from Anna Haugh, a Black Pudding burger from Patrick Powell and a crispy fried crubeen bun from Nick Fitzgerald of Tacos Padre (plus the beer, of course).
Ginsters have teamed up with Guinness for a brand new Ginsters Smoky Steak & Guinness slice.
