Complementing this beautiful bounty are all the ingredients for a feast inspired by the Emerald Isle: Housemade potato-leek soup and traditional brown Irish soda bread, plus Belgian-style ale, apple cake mix and a pickling spice kit to craft your own corned beef. As they say in Ireland, sláinte (to your good health)!`
