The new interactive and immersive Glovers Alley Kitchen Experience is being launched in June.
On Friday mornings, chef Andy McFadden and his team will welcome groups of four food enthusiasts into the restaurant kitchen, where participants will don an apron, get hands-on and learn top-secret techniques, with lots of opportunities for tastings, followed by a four-course lunch with champagne and wine pairings.
McFadden said, “We are delighted to be offering our Kitchen Experience 2023. We love sharing our space with people just as excited about food as we are, and showing them how we bring our menu to life. Our team shares industry secrets, an insight into the workings of a real kitchen, and the creativity of Glovers Alley.”
The Kitchen Experience is two and a half hours in the kitchen, followed by a lunch. The experience begins just after 10am with a talk by McFadden. He will then bring participants into the kitchen, where they will make a batch of signature Glovers Alley bread to take home. Next, they will get hands-on with the skills and techniques that the team applies to butchering meat, preparing fish, and creating refined desserts. Participants will also assist the kitchen team members as they prepare for that day’s lunch and dinner service. Throughout the morning, McFadden and the team will prepare various dishes for participants to taste.
After all that, participants will swap the kitchen for the dining room to sip a glass of champagne before consuming a specially created four-course lunch menu with paired wines that McFadden and his team have prepared.
The Glovers Alley Kitchen Experience is limited to four people per date and will run on Friday mornings from 2 June until 28 July. It includes a four-course lunch with paired wines. The Kitchen Experience is unsuitable for guests with allergies or dietary restrictions.

Glovers Alley is located at 128 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2, Ireland.
