St Patrick’s Day, the local way.

Newsroom | 2017-03-16


You’ll find many St Paddy’s day recipes for stews, green beer, cocktails and cakes all over the world, so let’s celebrate this traditionally Irish day, with a little local twist.

Thinking of getting the regular Friday night fire going? Introduce St Patrick’s Day to your usual braai, with these fun and festive add-ons.

Instead of the usual bowl of chips that does the pre-dinner rounds, try some leprechaun popcorn. Simply add some wasabi peanuts and twisted knot pretzels to a bowl of popcorn, for a unique St Paddy’s day snack.

Potato salad is always a big hit at the braai. Add a taste of the emerald isle to yours, with some softly cooked and finely chopped cabbage, spring onions and bacon bits.

For dessert, a rainbow shaped fruit platter, ending with a pot of melted chocolate on either end, will be a nice finishing touch to your St Patrick’s Day inspired braai.

For fresh produce you can count on, trust OK for all your St Patrick’s Day preparations.
