Some experiences you cherish forever and last Thursday evening cooking at the James Beard House in NYC will surly go down as a personal dream and life achievement event. Adamantly, we were truly spoiled by having the most amazing help from top culinary students from South West College in Northern Ireland and Farleigh Dickson University in NYC. We were so generously allowed to prep the day before our dinner at Sysco Kitchens just across the Hudson River and yet again worked with the best of the best.
We even had the presence of Steven Holland who just one Ireland’s Young restaurant Chef of the year from the Lough Erne and Nathan who no doubt is a young rising star. Thankfully we were all able to communicate between our Irish accents and our new friends from New Jersey.. Well, lets say most of the time!
Finally, I wanted to share a photo of my dessert Rhurbarb and Strawberry Cranachan with Valrhona White Chocolate cream and the peach shortbread’s I shared with you last week. The dessert was light and scrumptious and ended up to be the perfect ending to a perfect night!
For those friends who will be touring with me this summer you will be able to look forward to meeting many of these faces when we visit the Lough Erne Resort this July and August!
Dream of Ireland and go!
