MOUNT VERNON — Planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with your friends and family? Why not throw an intimate dinner party and serve a classic Irish dish: Irish Lamb Stew.

In centuries past, lamb stew was a staple in the diets of Irish commoners. Lamb and mutton were easily accessible, as well as root vegetables like potatoes, turnips and carrots. The combination of ingredients created a thick, hardy, easy dish that was loved by all.
