It's "St. Paddy's"

There's a new (to me) pull down menu at the top, under the CHOW logo. It says "St. Patty's Recipes".

I'm neither Irish nor Catholic, but I believe the nickname for St. Patrick is St. Paddy.

Then again, I say panino when there is only one sandwich involved, so maybe I'm too picky.

  1. I think you have a good point. Patty is the diminutive for Patricia.

    2. You are 100% right! Thanks for noticing this obvious error. Sort of makes you question the authenticity of the recipes themselves.

      You made me look (made me buy a penny book!)So, ruebens and corned beef, but no shepherds pie? Faith and begorah!

        Coll - you must have missed the recent thread on the Home Cooking board where Jewish deli, pasta, Swiss cheese, nachos and hummus were among the recommended "Irish" dishes.

          I'm off to look for it right now, I could use a laugh!

      2. Alcachofa is right - it should be "St. Paddy's", Chowhound Team.
        I have several cousins named Patrick, and if you ever called one of them Patty, well…

        1. Thanks so much for mentioning this. I may never have noticed it otherwise. I'm always looking for recipes for St. Patrick's day.
