Dinner at Irish Consulate and cooking with Ford

Last weekend the Shamrock and Peach was invited by our Irish consulate general to cook a 5 course Irish dinner.  When I told my hosts a friend was coming to help me cook it was a really fun surprise to see celebrity chef Ford Fry cooking with me in the kitchen.  Many of our guests were customers of the King and Duke, Jct Kitchen, the Optimist and 246 and knew they were in for an Irish treat with a true Southern chef inspired influence.  The evening was an honorary fund raising event for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day parade in Atlanta in the private Buckhead home of our Irish consulate general.  

Naturally, we served authentic Irish recipes but with the help of Ford we had fun adding that extra special modern Southern twist!  Why not make what’s already great… greater!   One of our nibbles as guests arrived include crispy Irish oatcakes topped with Southern Pimento cheese (made with Irish Dubliner cheese), crumbled apple wood smoked bacon and freshly chopped chives.

You can only imagine how much fun I was having learning from the master and cooking for our very own Atlanta based Irish consulate and honorary guests.   More photos and stories to come hope you enjoyed just a taste of our evening!
