Ireland by Jeanne Kuhns

Originally a daily staple created from the most basic ingredients in a poor country, variations on traditional Irish Soda Bread have become well-loved additions to St. Patrick’s Day meals. Now often associated with desserts, Irish Soda Bread is served with coffee or tea as well as with traditional Irish dinners from corned beef and cabbage to steak and Guinness or shepherd’s pie. The following soda bread recipe is worthy of dessert status! Shared by Patrick Palmer, employee at O’Meara’s Irish House in Fish Creek, and member of the local band Small Forest, Paddy’s Irish Soda Bread is rich and dense with sweet golden raisins, and best served warm with butter…

No Cold Feet at this Door County Winter Wedding: Congratulations Christy & Dave Foshey!

POSTED ON February 24th  - POSTED IN Uncategorized

A Winter Wedding

Think of the most romantic place to get married. I bet you wouldn’t even think of Door County, at a festival, outside, in the winter, but that’s just what one couple did a few weeks ago.

Christy and Dave Foshey are THE #1 fans of Fish Creek’s Winter Games. They, along with family and friends, have been attending the Games for 15 years. During last year’s Winter Games Dave even proposed to Christy using her favorite drink, Bayside’s Bloody Mary, to get that engagement ring to her in the most creative way possible—on a skewer between a pickle and an olive [Read the Engagement Story].

Initially, they had planned on marrying in Door County in July, but it never seemed right.

The English Inn at Christmas

Dining in the Door in the colder months can be especially pleasing as restaurants are cooking up holiday flavors, hot drinks and soups, and soul-warming comfort foods on their regular menus and daily specials. “But what’s open,” you may ask? While it’s true that many local restaurants close their doors and take much needed time off in our “quiet” season, there are still many restaurants open through the Holidays, only for a short time, or are actually open year round.

Check out the holiday and winter hours for many Door County restaurants below, there’s even live holiday music at a couple of them!
