New Stars for Taste of Sligo Spring Feast

Eithna O'Sullivan

Award winning chef Eithna O’Sullivan, from Eithna’s By the Sea restaurant in Mullaghmore, is joining the chef team for Sligo Food Trails Taste of Sligo Spring Feast.

The gala event takes place on Friday 20th April 2018 at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa. Six of Sligo Food Trail’s top chefs will work together on the night to create a nine course banquet for the lucky guests. This is a serious celebration of Sligo food and an unusual showcase for the talented chefs.

“Unsurprisingly I’m taking on the fish course,” smiles Eithna, whose restaurant has been crowned Seafood Restaurant of the Year. “I’m really looking forward to showcasing the wonderful seafood we have here in Sligo and introducing my style of fish cookery to a new audience.”

The timing of the Spring Feast is ideal for Eithna, who opens her restaurant annually with the season - when the fishing boats are heading out and the first of the local vegetables are being harvested.

Exact details of the menu are a secret until the night itself, but if the Harvest Feast is anything to go by, it will be a gastronomic extravaganza.

The team of chefs who are taking charge of this event are: Joe Shannon (Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa), Marcin Szczodrowski (Eala Bhán Restaurant), Lee Mastin (The Draft House Gastro Pub), Alan Fitzmaurice (The Glasshouse), Joe McGlynn (Hooked) and Eithna O’Sullivan (Eithna’s By The Sea). Historic Temple House and Cawleys of Tubbercurry are supplying handmade canapés and a host of local suppliers and producers make the menu.
