Beyond Corned Beef & Beer

Bare Bones Live w/Karen Babine & Kieran Foliard

Growing up, my mom Beth used to put green food coloring in our milk at breakfast every year on St. Patrick’s Day. It was a gag, a little something silly to squeal about before we trundled off to school. But it served as a subtle reminder that many years ago, we came from somewhere else — somewhere across the ocean.

Next Tuesday, we’ll celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with our very first Bare Bones Live. We hope you’ll join us for a conversation with author Karen Babine (All the Wild Hungers) and Irish-American food entrepreneur Kieran Folliard (2 Gingers, The Local) about the influence of Celtic culture on hospitality, storytelling and food in the United States.


Bare Bones Live: St. Patrick’s Day

Tuesday, March 16, 6 - 7 p.m EST / 5 CST

Registration required: RSVP here to receive Zoom link.


After a welcome, Karen and Kieran will each give a 10-15 minute talk, followed by informal Q&A. We hope to see you there!
