HARVEST DELIGHTS BEHIND THE GREEN BARN DOOR
Chef and River Cottage team member Gill Meller, whose cookery book Gather was one of last year’s food publishing highlights, is coming to Ireland to cook a harvest supper at the Green Barn at Burtown House in Co Kildare on Friday October 20th.
The local and sustainable ethos of Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstall’s Dorset headquarters is echoed at Burtown House, where Meller will be cooking with produce from the kitchen garden, cultivated by Dermot Carey. The five- course menu will be accompanied by wine pairings chosen by Shane Banim of Banim Wine Merchants.
Pickled wood- roast mussels, bacon, purple sprouting broccoli and cod’s roe, with Domaine des Anges AOC Ventoux 2015; and slow roast beef shin, oyster mayonnaise, seaweed and Jerusalem artichokes, with Château Nardou Francs, AOC Côtes de Bordeaux 2012, will feature on the five- course menu (¤ 95). Bookings can be made at info@ burtownhouse. ie or by telephoning 059- 8623865.
