Cliff Townhouse has announced details of its 6th annual Oyster Fest, which includes a range of oyster dishes and will run from September 7th – 30th.
For 2017, a new signature dish, The Taste of Ireland platter, has been created by head chef Sean Smith that focuses on the idea that ‘when you taste an oyster, you are experiencing the very place from where it was grown’.
The Taste of Ireland platter includes six varieties of oysters served both fresh and grilled; from the freshwater Carlingford oyster prepared with Castlebellingham cheese and oxtail to Flaggy Shore oysters grilled with tarragon and spinach. Each platter is available for €16.50.
“The food we serve at the Cliff Townhouse is a testament to the farmers, fishermen and local suppliers and producers that we work with all year round,” said Head Chef Sean Smith. “This Oyster Fest we wanted to create something different that celebrates the unique flavours of Ireland’s landscape using the ‘best of the best’ ingredients from those regions, while also providing a new way for people to experience the oysters themselves.”
As well, Cliff’s downstairs bar Urcin will be creating five signature cocktails for the month, each reflecting Ireland’s diverse landscape.
