Kate Ryan of Flavour.ie has created yet another exciting dining event for the ever-curious diners of West Cork by pairing the kings of extraordinary street food, The Sharp Knife, with Cork’s most successful craft brewery, 8 Degrees Brewing, and dropping them into a sleepy West Cork village for a night that celebrates the best of West Cork produce and explores new ways with Craft Beer.

The Sharp Knife are a guerrilla-style street food chef crew from the city.  Their chieftains are Bryan Phelan formerly of Holy Smoke and now at Rachel Allen’s new Cork City eatery and Mike McGrath of outstanding Japanese restaurant, Miyazaki. They bring with them a crew that love to mix it up with street food from around the world!  Everything from Middle Eastern to Louisiana Pit Smoke; South East Asian to the Californian Baja Peninsula, nothing is out of bounds.

Taking place on Saturday, April 8, each of the eight (yes, EIGHT!) courses have been specially created by The Sharp Knife, taking you on a global culinary journey of street food from the comfort of your dinner table.  Many dishes will be cooked with craft beer, as we demonstrate how versatile beer can be with cooking as well as sipping!  Dishes will be expertly matched by Caroline Hennessy of 8 Degrees Brewing, and DJ Paul Cullen will be spinning blues, funk, jazz and soul all night long!

And where is all of this happening? In the place you’d least expect it of course – Tots Pub in the sleepy West Cork village of Ballygurteen, a mere 10 minutes from West Cork’s premier foodie town of Clonakilty.

Kate said “Our event with The Sharp Knife in October last was absolutely brilliant. The style of street food that The Sharp Knife create is exceptional, but the dining experience itself is really relaxed and focused on fun. To be able to welcome 8 Degrees Brewing is fantastic! They are Cork’s most successful craft brewer and really helped to kick everything off for what is now a thriving and creative craft brewing industry across the whole of Cork.  It’s not your usual dining experience, but that’s what we like to do at Flavour.ie –bring something really different for the foodies of West Cork!”

The menu itself is a secret and won’t be revealed until diners arrive.  Diners are asked to leave any foodie inhibitions well and truly at the door and to go with whatever is put in their way!

Places are limited so pre-booking is essential.  The event is €65 per head with paired drinks or €55 per head without, includes a cocktail on arrival, eight courses of delicious food with paired drinks and live music by DJ Paul Cullen.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
