Guinness Recipes

Cooking Irish Food with Guinness for St. Patrick's Day
or any day you're feeling a bit Irish.

Be advised that all these Guinness recipes are best with a simulated Irish Pub Guinness, and not draught.
You can make a reasonable facsimile of Irish Pub Guinness by mixing a 3 to 1 ratio of draught to stout.
This only applies outside of Ireland. Your mileage (and taste) may vary.
