Innovation, education and strengthening of Irish food are the pillars underpinning the exciting series of Chef Swap events at Aniar Restaurant in Galway. This series sees acclaimed guest chefs collaborating with JP McMahon in Michelin starred Aniar throughout the year.
In February the series began with Ross Lewis of Michelin star Dublin restaurant Chapter One joining Aniar chef-patron JP McMahon in the kitchen, creating a 5-course lunch and 10-course evening meal blending the styles of each restaurant and showcasing the best of both. This was followed last month by Finnish chef Sasu Laukkonen from Helsinki Michelin star restaurant Chef & Sommelier.
Cornwall-based Michelin star chef Nathan Outlaw will join the Aniar kitchen team this weekend, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th April. Outlaw is at the helm of two of Britain’s most highly regarded seafood restaurants, Outlaw’s at the Capital in London and Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac, as well as a newly opened restaurant in seven-star Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai.
Outlaw is one of the most accomplished chefs in the world of seafood, with his signature pared-down style of seafood cookery on display right across his portfolio of restaurants. Outlaw utilises Irish fish in his restaurants in London and Dubai, and will blend his cooking style with Aniar’s core philosophy – the respectful use of sustainably produced, west of Ireland ingredients. JP McMahon said, “The purpose of Chef Swap at Aniar is to bring different chefs to Aniar in order to showcase their food and philosophy.”
Each of the Chef Swap at Aniar lunch and dinner menus follow the same menu format as the regular Aniar menu – 5 course lunch at €55 and 10 course evening menu at €110. For more information click here.
