THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: ST. PATRICK’S DAY! SAL BALDENEGRO ON THE IRISH AND MEXICANS, RICARDO ROMO ON THE CHEECH, THE ST. PATRICK’S BATTALION, HOW DO YOU SAY IT IN IRISH? AND, OF COURSE, THE RECIPE FOR MURRAY’S JALAPENO SODA BREAD.
It’s that time of the year again. Time for your corn beef and cabbage, Jamison’s and Guinness and of course, soda bread. This year we reprieve Sal Baldenegro’s comments from last year which still hold true about the contributions the Irish have made to American and the link to Mexicano and Chicano culture. Check out Sal’s Political Salsa y Más blog.
And if you’re still unclear about the San Patricios, check out the video clip from Mark Day’s docu-drama about this incredible group of men who paid dearly for their allegiance to Mexico.
Also this week we add a new feature. We know what but have you ever wondered how they say it in Gaelic, the original language of the Irish? Check out our new post “Como se dice in Gaelic?”
And last but not least, please visit Bobbi Murray’s recipe for her unique Irish/Mexicano Jalapeno soda bread.
Enjoy your week and Erin go Bragh!
