This autumn, Discover Ireland are throwing open the doors to a food and drink celebration
throughout the island of Ireland. Taste the Island will showcase the very best of Ireland’s food and
drink culture. That means everything from restaurants and local craft food and drink producers to
festivals and food trails and everything in between.
Get to the heart of Ireland’s culinary scene by meeting the people behind Ireland’s incredible food
and drink. Find out more about the craft and how the soil-to-service journey happens, explore
regional specialities or follow on one of many fascinating food trails around the country.
As part of the Taste the Island, Gill Meller will return to The Green Barn at Burtown House in Athy to
work with head chef Rodrigo Gonzalez and his team of chefs to cook an amazing day of wood fired
Using only the bounty of the gardens, tunnels & hedge groves with our organic Dexter cows from
our fields, the day will consist of wood-fired ovens, pits and spits being used to cook an incredible
Guests will gather in a special part of the Burtown house gardens for an Autumnal Outdoor cookery
demonstration. This will include watching part of the evenings’ feast of local lamb and organic
vegetables from the gardens, placed into an earth oven and cooked below the ground for several
hours before being unearthed later that evening and brought to the table.
Cooking in the earth is a technique that has been practiced in different ways and by different
cultures for many thousands of years. The most famous earth ovens – or pit ovens, as they’re also
known – are those of the Māori people of New Zealand. and evolved from an even older Polynesian
tradition. Earth ovens, called hāngi, remain a part of Māori culture today; they are a simple and
effective way to cook both large and smaller quantities of food. Guests will gather at the earth oven
again later on for mulled cider, a fire-based pre-dinner snack and the unearthing of the feast, always
an exciting part of the process.
There will be three fire cooking stations, below ground as mentioned, a fire pit above ground and a
rustic log fire.
During the afternoon Gill, Rodrigo, and Dermot Carey – head gardener will take guests to the kitchen
garden and polytunnels to gather herbs, flowers & veg which the kitchen team will prep in the open plan kitchen, allowing for conversation and interaction between the chefs and our guests.
Dinner, which you will have witnessed being prepared throughout the day will be served at roughly
7pm, family-style on long tables with sharing platters.
This will be an incredible day, not to be missed!
