Mount Juliet Estate has retained its Michelin Star for the contemporary fine dining restaurant, The Lady Helen. This is the third year in a row that the highly coveted award has been bestowed on the unique restaurant at the five star destination in Kilkenny.
Michelin is recognised by the industry as the only international system for grading haute cuisine and is seen as the ultimate mark of a restaurant’s fine dining quality.
Under the expert guidance of Head Chef Ken Harker and his team, the Lady Helen Restaurant offers a unique and elegant dining affair. Ken’s passion for the highest quality produce is served with considered creative flair.
From the constant inclusion of seasonally relevant, locally sourced where possible, quality produce, to the tight collaboration with Lady Helen’s sommeliers, every last detail of a memorable food experience is attended to.
Chef Harker’s Signature Surprise Nine Course Tasting Menu with Wine Pairings is a must for those who want to experience the highlights of the Lady Helen culinary offer.
Head Chef Ken Harker commented: “Retaining our Michelin star for another year is a testament to the inherent passion for food in the Mount Juliet Estate and the team of highly skilled chefs that I am lucky to work with in our kitchen. A key consideration in Michelin grading is consistency and I believe we achieve that through our passion, dedication and hard work over the last three years. For me, the success of the food The Lady Helen restaurant serves is rooted in finding and unlocking the potential of the very best ingredients. As a team we are humbled and delighted to be recognised with this award.”
