Learn more about this crooner through food.
Known for his smooth baritone voice, Bing Crosby has held a special place in our hearts since the Great Depression. Here are the recipes that remind us of this talented singer and actor.
Bing Crosby’s real name was Harry Lillis Crosby. So where’d he get the nickname “Bing”? From his favorite comic strip growing up: Bingville Bugle. He read it so much, people started calling him “Bing.” This cherry bounce, which uses sweet Bing cherries, reminds us of this crooner.
Bing grew up in a large family. He was one of seven children. SEVEN! We bet his mother had her hands full, and was definitely in need of some dinners that could feed a crowd, like this chicken and wild rice casserole.
Bing had Irish blood, with his mother being a second generation Irish-American. Practically every Irish family has a special recipe for Irish soda bread that’s been passed down generations. Here’s our favorite.
