Kate Ryan — food blogger, intrepid home cook and all round local food enthusiast — is on a mission to spread the word about West Cork food to the world. In April 2014, she launched her blog ‘Flavour.ie’ chronicling her love of great local produce and how to use it at home in easy, tasty and nutritious meals from scratch.

Kate established a foodie social club hosting Supper Club events at her home creating inventive menus, sourcing great local ingredients and cooking up an indulgent feast for diners in a relaxed and informal atmosphere where people connected through their love of food would arrive as strangers and leave as friends.

As the event popularity grew, Kate was looking for a bigger venue to host the Supper Club. A meeting with Marie O’Keeffe, chef of the Emmet Hotel in Clonakilty, who was also looking for something different for her customer’s, happened by chance.

Kate says: “Marie and I are both passionate about local seasonal food, and great produce served with great care and attention. Marie was looking for something new, and I was looking for someplace new, so it was perfect timing. I can’t wait to host my beautiful and unique dining experience at the Emmet. Events will take place in the Sun Room as an exclusive dining space only for my diners.”

The next Supper Club event takes place on Saturday, April 18 and is themed ‘Tastes of Rhubarb’. Diners will be treated to a beautifully crafted five-course menu created by Kate and cooked by Marie O’Keeffe and her team, centered on this versatile vegetable and how it can be paired with many different flavours to elevate it beyond the Humble Crumble!

Diners will be greeted with a Rhubarb Bellini, a chance to mingle and chat about the menu before dinner, meet the producer of the rhubarb that will be the star of the dinner and receive menu booklets to take away with them.  Kate will host the evening making sure everyone is happy and leaves with full bellies and new friends.

To view the menu in full and to book visit www.flavour.ie email flavour@allsorts.net or call 086 205 9360, find us on Facebook and Twitter.
