Great Gift Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day

Guinness and GuinnessAs St Patrick’s Day approaches a few gift ideas come to mind for the Irish (or Irish wanna be’s) in your life.

One often hears of that famous “Pot of Gold” but green is the big winner! A basil-colored Staub 6 ¼ quart Cocotte is one green pot that can serve many purposes at home.  It wears its green well and looks great on the cooktop even when not in use. The cast iron pot has a durable and beautiful enamel coating. It’s the perfect pot for Irish Stew. This pot is ideal for slow cooked foods that remain tender and juicy. The inside has some natural non-stick properties so when you’re cooking foods over low heat for a long period of time you don’t need to worry about foods sticking to the bottom. This Staub cocotte also doesn’t need to be cured or treated before you use it (other than washing it). Try it for Irish Oatmeal! That’s the real Irish oatmeal, a hearty and tasty beginning to any day. This pot of green will be a favorite for years!

Chef's Choice Tea KettleMany Irish like a good cup of tea in the morning. Chef’s Choice makes a beautiful Cordless Tea Kettle for a reasonable price. It heats up quickly and because it is cordless there is no dangling cord to worry about when serving. The stainless steel construction and elegant design make this a winner!

Breville Convection OvenAnother wonderful kitchen helper is the Breville Countertop Convection Oven. This compact oven turns out perfect Irish Soda Bread and Barm Brack/Tea Brack. If you prefer a good, crisp pizza, you’ll love this counter top oven’s ability to make perfect pizza crust and hot but not burned toppings. Because this is a convection oven, everything bakes faster and more evenly. Anyone who enjoys baking will rave over the results! The Breville oven’s sturdy stainless steel exterior is also easy to clean. A real time saver.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Here’s to wearin’ or cookin’ the green!
