St Patrick’s day in Münich with a spinach lasagna

Posted on Updated on

CIMG4397CIMG4406Like millions of Irish all over the world, the Munich Irish society and their friends also celebrate their national holiday in Münich each year.

Since 1995 the St Patrick’s day has been held in Munich. The city’s main thoroughfare and march from Odeonsplatz to Münchner Freiheit. The atmosphere is always electrifying and the parade is peaceful attracting onlookers and participants of all nationalities and creeds, so about that Multi-Kulti event which was initiated by the Irish in Munich in 1995 the world had taken notice immediately and they bolstered their belief up that anything is possible if someone really want it.

I think this year will be no different and the intense excitement that usually characterises the parade in which the participation numbers from 3,000 to 15,000 has grown will outnumber itself. Last year (in 2013) was the first time when the Allianz Arena was illuminated green on St Patrick’s day! Long live St. Patrick however as a patron saint he has quite a few disadvantages such as:

We don’t actually know who he was.

We don’t actually know where he came from.

He was not the first Christian missionary in Ireland.

There may have been two of him.

He may not have existed at all.

Apart from that, he’s a fantastic patron saint.”

And now some culinary treatment instead of Shepperd pie I got a fantastic vegetarian recipe from the chef of the Kilian’s Irish pub, here you are
