A new RTÉ series takes viewers behind the scenes at Ireland’s finest eateries – including Restaurant Chestnut, a Michelin award-winner within six months of opening.meets the chef behind it, Rob Krawczyk
The birthplace of Irish hospitality is undoubtedly east Cork thanks to Myrtle Allen and her Ballymaloe House and the market town of Midleton, long time host of one of the country’s original farmer’s markets, is the very natural HQ for the upcoming fEAST food festival (September 1-8) although events span the region.
We are super excited to have three new Michelin star restaurants in Co Cork: The Mews in Baltimore, West Cork under chef Ahmet Dede; Ichigo Ichie in Cork city owned by chef Takashi Miyazaki and Chestnut in Ballydehob with chef Rob Krawczyk (a Ballymaloe Cookery School alumni).
IT’S that time of year when ghoulish figures tempt us with oversweet treats, and black jeans and hats get an airing for the Cork Jazz Festival. This week I am taking you on a journey of discovery of black foods to serve for Halloween parties or quick bites between house or music visits — that take little effort to use.
