St Patrick’s Day 2021: 5 Unmissable Food and Drink CollaborationsBy Angelica Malin
While we can’t spend St Patrick’s Day 2021 traipsing around our favourite Irish haunts (The Sheephaven Bay and Boston Arms, we’ll be back next year), we can celebrate the holiday at home with more than just a four-pack of Guinness.
From burger kits to full-blown feasts, here’s 5 food and drink collabs that’ll bring some Irish charm to your home this Paddy’s Day.
The Run-Down: Hop House 13 is here to help you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at home in true Dublin style. With bustling street parties and lively pub gatherings off the agenda this year, our homes are set to take centre stage for the celebrations. To mark the occasion, Hop House 13 has teamed up with top chefs, Anna Haugh (Myrtle, London), Patrick Powell (Allegra, London) and Nick Fitzgerald (Tacos Padre, London), to cook up a special tribute to Dublin’s famous hospitality scene.
Eat: Inside the Hop House 13 ‘Dublin Born & Brewed’ meal kit, you’ll find three tasty AF, easy-to-make dishes with a distinctly Irish flavour. From a tribute to the humble ‘chipper’ to a fresh twist on a fast-food favourite, get ready to savour the delights of a Dublin night out – even if we’re all staying in this year.
