"Its all about the farmers" says Evan Doyle of Brooklodge, "Organic Harvest to The Strawberry Tree is daily. Through our Kitchen door every morning, fifty-two weeks a year, our Farmers bring what they have harvested, and it is only then that our menu is decided.
However, the ‘Big Harvest’ only arrives once a year when our menu bursts with all this wonderful produce for all too brief cameo appearances. This year though with Nature doing, what Nature has done, The Big Harvest has moved to October and so we have decided that we give full homage to our Farmers, with a Special Tasting Menu dedicated totally to the Farm
Here are the Farms that are contributing to each course. ‘Harvest’ such as this, needs little work in The Kitchen… just respect. We hope you enjoy!"
What a menu the chefs produced. On the last night, the farmers were invited to be part of the celebration of the Organic Irish food, interspersed with the customers- now look what can be done!!! Delicious!!! and thank you Chefs of Brooklodge and the Strawberry Tree.
