Kevin Thornton Joins World Class Chefs to Talk Food Philosophy in Lisdoonvarna
Three of Ireland’s emerging and Michelin-star chefs will gather next week for an evening of cookery demonstrations and food philosophy discussion. On Friday 11th March, Kevin Thornton will be joined in The Burren Storehouse in Lisdoonvarna by Jamie Simpson from the Culinary Vegetable Institute of The Chef’s Garden and Enda McEvoy of Loam Restaurant in Galway.
Jamie Simpson is committed to transforming the produce he uses into creative dishes that evoke thought provoking discussions about food’s potential to inspire. Enda McEvoy is an award winning chef and received his first Michelin star in September after just one year in business.
Together they have designed an exclusive menu for their guests comprised of local Irish ingredients from the nation’s most inspired food producers. Towards the end of the meal, renowned chef Kevin Thornton will host a Question and Answer session where food enthusiasts can debate the finer points of food philosophy with the chefs.
John McKenna will be the MC for the evening, which has been 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.
This event takes place in The Burren Storehouse, next to the Roadside Tavern, Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare, at 5.00pm on Friday, 11th March 2016.
Tickets are €75 and are available from Eventbrite.
