4 Fun Facts About St. Patrick’s Day (Plus How to Pre-Order Your Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner) 

 

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner – and you may be already getting in the spirit with “Kiss Me I’m Irish” tee shirts, green décor and plans to attend South Boston’s iconic St. Paddy’s Day Parade.

Our team at B & M Catering is also preparing our special Corned Beef & Cabbage menu for the big day. In honor of this beloved Irish holiday, today on the blog we’re sharing four fun facts about St. Patrick’s Day! 

  1. The Man Behind the Holiday 

So who is St. Patrick, anyway? Turns out, he’s a patron saint of Ireland, who died on March 17th, the day we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day.  According to popular belief, he was actually born in Roman Britain, and kidnapped as a teenager where he was taken to Ireland. 

  1. The Luck of the Four-Leaf Clover

Four-leaf clovers have long been a symbol of good luck and fortune. Turns out, finding one may be even more difficult than you thought. According to Live Science, most clovers have three leaves, and the ones with four leaves (or more) are the result of a very rare genetic mutation. 

While luck may not be on your side finding one, in 2018 a young girl broke the Guinness World Record for the most four-leaf clovers collected in one hour when she spotted a whopping 166!

  1. Pour Me Another Guinness! 

A dark Irish stout, Guinness is typically the go-to brew of choice on St. Patrick’s Day. In fact, according to IrishCentral, roughly 13 million pints of Guinness were expected to be consumed worldwide last St. Patrick’s Day. That’s a whole lot of  “Irish Champagne!” 

  1. The Perfect Irish meal 

If you’ve ever eaten at an Irish restaurant or gone to an Irish friend’s house for the holiday, you’ve likely enjoyed a Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner – which is actually an Irish-American tradition. Typically pink in color due to its curing process, corned beef is made from a cut of brisket and usually served with cabbage and potatoes.

 

Contact us today to place your Corned Beef & Cabbage dinner order!

The menu comes with corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, turnips, carrots, onion and Irish soda bread & butter.

"I wish there were more stars, I would rate B&M higher!

I hired B&M catering for my friends 40th birthday party and I could not have been happier with the food or the service.

Stephanie was great to work with to plan the event. She assured me I would feel like a guest at my own party and she was 100% right! She did not try to upsell me at all, she actually took down the number of apps I ordered and we had the perfect amount.

Jason and Ally (on-site crew for the day) were so fantastic and took care of everything.

They showed up early, were there throughout the event and made sure everything was all set/cleaned up before they left.They were available if we needed anything all day!

Everyone at the party raved about the food and the service.

We did the New England Lobster Bake and while it was a little expensive it was totally worth it.

 It was an experience for everyone at the party!"

“B & M Catered our backyard wedding and it was amazing! Food and service was fantastic, even guests kept telling me afterwards how great the food was! We did a custom menu of BBQ Steak Tips and Salmon, which worked out perfectly. They even accommodated separate plates for allergies and vegan. Day-of service was also spot-on.  

Everything was on time, delicious, and went so smoothly. Tim even came over to our table as soon as food was served to make us a plate of everything we wanted. Bride and Groom were top of mind all night and I cannot say enough great things about them. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for an on-site cooking and serving vendor. Thanks B & M for helping to make my dream day perfect!”

-Lynsey

 

“We chose B & M to cater our August wedding and were absolutely thrilled with the results! From the initial tasting to final cleanup, everything was handled professionally and efficiently. The selection of menu options is vast and flexible. The food is perfectly delicious and quantities generous. Any leftovers are boxed up for you to take home. As we finished our photo shoot during the cocktail hour, we were amazed to see the B & M staff folding up chairs and taking down decorations from our ceremony site - completely unasked! We could not recommend them more highly for any occasion.”

-Sally F. 

 

“Absolutely the best decision we made was hiring B & M. Everyone loved the food! They were so easy to work with and have a fantastic staff!”

-Kristin
