With Saint Patrick’s day coming up, I thought I’d post an Irish recipe. But I’m totally embarrassed to say that this is only one of two Irish recipes that I make. Andddddd I’m not even sure about how Irish this one really is. The filling is stewed in Guinness…. is that what classifies it as Irish? Either way, this pie is a family favourite!
It’s the second week of July and we’ve been lucky to have already had quite a few of those really hot days. But the thing about Montréal weather is that it fluctuates. By a lot. And real quick. So this weekend was more like autumn; it rained, it cooled down, it was grey and drab, and we stayed indoors for the most part. Although Montréalers are known to grill outdoors in the rain and snow (yeah, we’re like that), this weekend I turned to my oven. Ovens are like old friends, they’re always there waiting for you and when you go back it’s as if you never left.
