Often considered a holiday for beer drinkers, we of course prefer to pair wine with our Irish themed feast. And tomorrow, we’ll be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with corned beef and Three Coins Syrah.
This got me to thinking about where to find delicious corned beef dishes in wine country. Here are a few spots to ensure you’ll eat well tomorrow while celebrating the Irish holiday, I may have to extend the celebration to satisfy my fix:
· Head to Café Sarafornia in Calistoga for their corned beef hash. We’ve mentioned our love for their breakfast and hamburger Wednesdays on this blog before, but their Irish themed dish offers yet another reason to dine in.
· Make it a brunch date at the Medowood Grill for their corned beef hash with potatoes, caramelized onions and smoked tomatoes.
· Got a big appetite? Drop into the Soscol Café in Napa for their corned beef hash and poached eggs. You won’t find minced corned beef there, but rather bigger chunks of meat to satisfy your appetite.
· While you’re in Napa, create a Five Dot Ranch corned beef tasting progression. They sell their seasonal corned beef brisket inside the Oxbow Public Market, while the Fatted Calf sells a corned beef brisket and the Kitchen Door serves up a hash – both with Five Dot Ranch beef.
· And if you’re still hungry on Sunday, don’t miss the corned beef hash for brunch at Zazu in Sonoma. It’s Iron Chef worthy.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Eat local, and eat well.
