Food Philosophy On The Menu As Top Chefs Visit Lisdoonvarna
A top class line-up of chefs will appear at the Burren Storehouse in Lisdoonvarna in Co. Clare later this week to discuss their own food philosophy and take part in cookery demonstrations.
The event, which will take place on Friday 11 March (5pm), will host Irish celebrity chef and author Kevin Thornton, Jamie Simpson from the Culinary Vegetable Institute of the Chef's Garden, and Enda McEvoy (pictured), the owner of Loam Restaurant in Galway.
Simpson is well-regarded for his design of dishes around the seasonal vegetables and herbs on the farm, while the award-winning McEvoy won a Michelin Star last year for Loam. The two chefs will design and cook a meal at the event.
Towards the end of the meal, Kevin Thornton will host a Q&A session. Meanwhile, John McKenna from John and Sally McKenna's Guides will be the MC for the evening, which is co-organised by Birgitta Hedin Curtin of The Burren Smokehouse and Jody Eddy, a travel writer, published author and culinary tour organiser.
"If you are interested in food, in a wholesome approach to food and in the philosophy behind real food, then this event is a must for you. This is the first time an event like this has ever happened," said Ms. Hedin-Curtin.
