Who knew that the one and only Barbra Streisand has a hankering for Irish soda bread? She shared her love of the beloved Irish staple while meeting with Irish Ambassador to the U.S. Anne Anderson at a recent gathering of the Women’s Heart Alliance in D.C. The quick thinking ambassador arranged for a fresh batch of soda bread, which she presented to Babs, who was so taken she posted a photo and caption on her Instagram account.

“When I was in Washington, D.C. last week, I told the Irish ambassador that I loved Irish soda bread. To my delight, she went home and brought back a fresh baked loaf. It was yummy!” Streisand shared along with a picture of Anderson handing her the bread.

The Irish Embassy, on its social media accounts, shared a lovely photo of Babs clutching her wrapped loaf of bread with Anderson standing beside her. “The ambassador is delighted that Barbra Streisand really liked the Irish soda bread! You too can enjoy it,” read the post, which also included the recipe.

Check it out on the Irish Embassy’s Facebook page. It does indeed sound yummy!
