RÉAMHRÁ : TJ O'CONNOR, CHAIRPERSON, TASTE KERRY

FOREWORD Welcome to the Taste Kerry publication. This is our way of showcasing some of the remarkable food and drink that Kerry produces.

TASTE KERRY ADOPTS A DISTINCTIVELY ORIGINAL APPROACH BY BRINGING TOGETHER ALL ASPECTS OF THE FOOD INDUSTRY THROUGHOUT KERRY TO ENCOURAGE INTER-TRADE AND THE PROMOTION OF FOOD IN TOURISM ACROSS THE COUNTY. PAIRING FOOD PRODUCERS WITH THE HOSPITALITY SECTOR PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR FOOD EXPERIENCE PROVIDERS TO OFFER THEIR CLIENTELE A DEFINED DELICACY OF AUTHENTIC FOOD, SPECIFIC TO THE KERRY REGION. VISIT TASTEKERRY.IE

The aim of this publication is to strengthen the links between everyone who creates, cooks, eats and drinks in Kerry and beyond. We want to give a strong and vibrant message that Kerry is open for business in relation to food and drink and that we have some of the best food producers and food experiences not just in Ireland, but in the world. This publication is being brought to you by Taste Kerry which is a voluntary organisation which has set itself the following mission: ‘To create a strong, vibrant and living food identity for County Kerry. This is to be achieved by providing and supporting networks, which encourage and enable stakeholders, to engage and become more sustainable. The ultimate goal is to promote growth and profitability within the food industry.’

11

When it comes to food and drink producers, the individual is as important as the product, because they bring their own passion, beliefs and character to bear on what they do and they all have their respective stories to tell. In this publication this is reflected, as well as events and experiences related to food and drink in Kerry. I am very proud to be a Kerryman (is there any other kind?) and as a chef and educationalist I could not think of a better place in the world to be than in Kerry. I hope that this publication will give all its readers new eyes when looking at food and drink in Kerry. Bain sult agus súp as do thuras i measc tháirgeoirí bia agus dí na Ríochta. TJ O’Connor, Chairperson, Taste Kerry

VALENTIA ISLAND FARMHOUSE DAIRY A small family business on an island transforms milk from Friesian cows into rich creamy yogurt and ice cream. Joe and Caroline Daly set up Valentia Island Farmhouse Dairy ten years ago on Valentia Island. They make and sell high-quality yogurt and ice cream to hotels in County Kerry including the 5-star Europe Hotel and Resort in Killarney. Their products (including buttermilk) are made from the milk that comes from a herd of 70 pedigree Holstein Friesian cows who graze on Valentia Island on grasses flavoured by the wash of the Atlantic ocean. 'We add cream to our milk to make our ice cream', says Joe. 'We also have an ice cream parlour on the farm'. It's been so successful that they had to extend it in the last year. They sell pancakes and desserts with a healthy dollop of Valentia Island Farmhouse Dairy Ice Cream! t: 086 8068062 For directions to the ice cream parlour see our Food Experience Map on our website at tastekerry.ie

PICKLED IN DINGLE + BALLYDAVID HONEY When Marie Charland of Pickled in Dingle met her husband Fergal Murphy, an aspiring beekeeper, they formed a marriage in more ways than one. Marie Charland, a French Canadian who came to Ireland 16 years ago, met her husband Fergal Murphy while pouring a pint for him in his local. Together they have created a little food industry between them. Marie makes Pickled in Dingle chutneys including 'Date and Orange'; 'Butternut Squash, Apricot and Almond'; 'Pear and Red Onion' and 'Beetroot and Orange' made with beetroot grown by her friend Aidan in Castlegregory. Meanwhile Fergal has created a business from his passion for beekeeping, selling Ballydavid Honey from his hives of bees who feast on clover, fuchsia flowers, blackberries and sycamore in Ballydavid, just ten minutes west of Dingle. The honey is pale with a

delicate flavour and changes throughout the year depending on what's growing in each season. It is the ultimate local product. You'll find Pickled in Dingle chutneys and Ballydavid Honey at farmer's markets in Kerry. Try Marie's pickle and a drizzle of Fergal's honey with a piece of Béal Organic Cheese. bealorganiccheese.com

SHOPS + SUSHI / SIOPAÍ + SUSHI Innovation has always been at the heart of great food and drink. Two businesses sum up this creativity: a sushi company marrying Japanese skill with local seafood, and a shop that only stocks food from Kerry.

DINGLE SUSHI Whoever first said 'Act Local, Think Global' must have had husband and wife team Marcin and Magdalena Kopec who own Dingle Sushi in mind. The couple, who are originally from Poland, create hand-made colourful, delicious sushi using Kerry fish and seafood in the Dingle Gaeltacht with the support of Údarás na Gaeltachta. Each of their hand-crafted sushi look like little portraits of the Kerry landscape. They won local acclaim with a Blás na hÉireann 'Best in Farmer's Market' award in 2015.

OIDEAS/RECIPE

Kerry Beef is both tender and meaty and is the perfect foil for Carraig Dubh porter from the West Kerry Brewery.

BEER-BRAISED KERRY BEEF Serves 4 INGREDIENTS 450g Kerry stewing beef, cut into 1" cubes Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 1 medium carrot, cut into small chunks 1/2 stick celery, finely sliced 1/2 teaspoon dried fennel 3 sprigs thyme Zest and juice of 1 orange 500ml porter 2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped 2 sprigs of fresh thyme to garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/ Gas 4 for 20 minutes. 2. Season the beef lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper and set aside. 3. Place a tablespoon of rapeseed oil with the onion, garlic, carrot and celery in a heavy oven-proof casserole and cook over gentle heat for 10 minutes until soft and lightly coloured. Add the dried fennel, stir and cook for 2 minutes. 4. Add the beef, thyme, zest and juice of the orange and the porter. Stir to remove the sticky bits at the bottom of the casserole. 5. Place the casserole in the oven with the lid on and bake for 2 and a half to 3 hours, or until the meat is melting. Stir from time to time, adding a little water if necessary. Remove the lid from the casserole for the last half hour of cooking so the sauce can reduce and thicken.

6. Stir in the tomatoes ten minutes before the end of cooking. Garnish the stew with a few sprigs of fresh thyme and serve. WHERE TO SOURCE KERRY INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE Use Kerry beef from any of our Kerry butchers on page 56 and 57; Carraig Dubh porter from the West Kerry Brewery (westkerrybrewery.ie) and serve with new potatoes from Ardfert potatoes (see page 60).

OIDEAS/RECIPE

Kerry produces some of the finest seafood in the world. It's best to cook it simply where it can shine.

SHELLFISH IN SAFFRON AND WHITE WINE Serves 4 INGREDIENTS 1kg fresh mussels 1kg fresh clams Pinch of saffron strands 2 tablespoons Kerry butter 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 2 shallots, finely chopped 1/4 bunch parsley, finely chopped 2 glasses dry white wine Freshly ground black pepper

1. Clean the mussels and clams under lots of cold running water, discarding any that are open and that do not close easily when you gently press the shell. Remove the beards from the mussels. 2. Place the saffron in a small bowl or glass with hot water. Leave to bloom. 3. Take a large saucepan that will fit all the shellfish. Melt the butter with the rapeseed oil over a gentle heat and add the garlic and shallots. Cook until soft (2-3 minutes). Add half the parsley, the white wine and a little freshly ground black pepper. 4. Turn the heat to high and add the saffron and its soaking liquid with the mussels and clams. Put the lid on the saucepan. Cook over high heat for a few minutes until the shells open. You'll need to shake the pan a few times during cooking and halfway through, toss the shellfish with a large spoon. When all the shells are open the shellfish is cooked (discard any that have not opened). 35

5. Spoon the shellfish into bowls with a little of the white wine and saffron broth. Sprinkle over the remaining parsley and serve immediately. WHERE TO SOURCE KERRY INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE You'll find the shellfish you need for this recipe at Glenbeigh Shellfish (glenbeighshellfish.ie). You can also make this recipe with just mussels – why not try organic Irish rope mussels from Kush Shellfish (kush.ie).

OIDEAS/RECIPE

Pair Wilma Silvius' Killorglin Farmhouse Cheese gouda with Kerry smoked salmon and you have a canapĂŠ or starter that would not look out of place in a fine restaurant.

GOUDA CRISPS WITH SMOKED SALMON Serves 4 INGREDIENTS 160g gouda, grated 100g smoked salmon cut into 8 thin slices 8 teaspoons cream cheese 4 chives, chopped finely

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/ Gas 6. 2. Make the gouda crisps. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place 8 small bundles of grated gouda on the parchment making sure they are ½ inch apart. Bake for 5 minutes until bubbly (they will spread out quite a lot). Remove from the oven and leave to cool. 3. When the gouda crisps are cold, lift them gently from the parchment paper with a spatula or palette knife. Use immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days until ready to use. 4. Just before serving, mix the cream cheese with the chopped chives. Place the gouda crisps on a serving plate, top each with a spoon of chive cream cheese and place a thin fold of smoked salmon on top. Recipe tip: If you make the gouda crisps ahead of time, refresh them for 1 minute in a hot oven to crisp them up.

39

WHERE TO SOURCE KERRY INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE Wilma Silvius at Killorglin Farmhouse Cheese makes a dutchstyle gouda that you can use in this recipe - you'll find her on page 52 of our producer directory. Use cream cheese from Dingle Farmhouse Cheese (see page 17). Kerry produces some of the finest salmon in the world. Why not try Wild Smoked Irish Salmon from Quinlan's Kerry Fish (see page 24); KRD Salmon (page 54); Kenmare Smoked Salmon (kenmare-select. com) and Daly's Seafood (page 54).

OIDEAS/RECIPE

An ideal breakfast bar but you can also serve these decadent granola bars as a treat with a cup of tea in the afternoon.

CHOCOLATE FUDGE GRANOLA BARS INGREDIENTS 1 teaspoon sunflower oil to grease the baking tin 300g granola 100g almonds or cashews, chopped into small chunks 6 tablespoons honey 4 tablespoons Kerry butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 100g dried fruit (sultanas, apricots or cranberries), roughly chopped For the topping:

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/ Gas 4. Oil or line a square baking dish (it needs to be about 8 inches/22cm square). Set aside. 2. Spread the granola and almonds or cashews out on a large baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until golden, stirring halfway through. Leave aside to cool. Leave the oven on. 3. Place the honey and butter in a non-stick pan and melt over a low heat. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract.

100g 60-70% chocolate 50g fudge, shaved thinly or cut into fine chunks 2 tablespoons cream

4. Gently mix the toasted nuts and granola and the dried fruit with the honey and butter mixture until you have a homogenous mixture. Press into the oiled baking dish and even out the top with a spoon. Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden. Wait ten minutes, then turn it out gently onto a board and cut into squares or oblongs.

5. While the granola bars cool, make the chocolate and fudge topping. Melt the chocolate, fudge and cream in a bowl over a pan of hot water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water. Immediately spread the chocolate mixture over the granola bars with a knife. WHERE TO SOURCE KERRY INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE O'Donnell's Bakery, Killorglin (see page 50) makes granola that would be perfect in this recipe. Use chocolate from Lorge Chocolatier (see page 29) or from Skelligs Chocolate (skelligschocolate.com); Dovinia Chocolate (dovinia.com) or Oileรกn Artisan Chocolate. Use Fab Fudge (see page 29) for the fudge topping or add chopped slivers of Killarney toffee (page 29) to the melted chocolate. Turn to page 60 for more chocolate producers.

OIDEAS/RECIPE

Use juicy sweet fragrant Sliabh Luachra strawberries grown in Currow, County Kerry. Here they are macerated with rosewater and served with meringue and lemon curd.

STRAWBERRY AND ROSE MERINGUES INGREDIENTS 400g strawberries, hulled and washed 3 tablespoons caster sugar 1/4 teaspoon rosewater 4 mini-meringue cases 100g lemon curd

1. Place the strawberries in a saucepan with 1 tablespoon cold water. Add the sugar and rosewater and stir gently. 2. Cook over a low heat for 3-4 minutes until the strawberries give up enough juice to make a syrup. (You can do this ahead and store the strawberries in the fridge until you are ready to make up the dessert.) 3. When you are ready to serve, place the meringue cases on individual serving plates, fill them with lemon curd, spoon over the strawberries and drizzle with the rose-scented syrup left in the bowl.

43

WHERE TO SOURCE THE INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE If you want to make your own meringue, use Beaufort freerange eggs (page 16) and serve the dessert with cream from Valentia Island Farmhouse Dairy (see page 16).


44


OIDEAS/RECIPE

Caper and mint butter really brings out the sweetness of Ring of Kerry lamb. Serve this dish with boiled new potatoes from Manna Organic Farm and Store.

RING OF KERRY LAMB Serves 4 INGREDIENTS 1 rack of lamb with 8 chops Salt Freshly ground black pepper For the caper and mint butter: 100g softened butter 2 teaspoons capers 8 mint leaves, finely chopped

1. Season the lamb chops on both sides with salt. 2. Heat a non-stick griddle pan. 3. Cook the chops over a medium to high heat for 3-4 minutes on the first side until golden all over, then turn and cook for 2-3 minutes on the second side. Remove to a plate, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper, loosely cover with tin foil and leave to rest. 4. While the lamb is resting, mix the softened butter with the capers and mint. 5. Serve the lamb chops on a large serving plate dotted with little knobs of the caper and mint butter.

45

WHERE TO SOURCE THE INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE You can buy Ring of Kerry Quality Lamb online for delivery nationwide at ringofkerryqualitylamb.ie or visit any of the butchers listed in our directory at page 56. You'll find vegetables to go with Ring of Kerry Quality Lamb at Manna Organic Farm and Store (mannaorganicstore.ie). They sell organic vegetables grown in fine Kerry soil from their 25-acre farm in the Gleann na nGealt Valley near Camp, County Kerry. Use local Kerry Lee Strand salted butter.

OIDEAS/RECIPE

Kerry producers – including Sásta, Annascaul, Leah's, Micilín Muc and Byrne's of Sneem – make some of the best black pudding in the world. Add Ring of Kerry Apple Juice and Camo's Honey and Mustard dressing and you have a real taste of Kerry.

BLACK PUDDING AND APPLE SALAD Serves 4 INGREDIENTS For the dressing 240ml apple juice 1 teaspoon Dijon or wholegrain mustard 1 teaspoon lemon juice For the salad 8 slices black pudding 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil 50g butter 2 tablespoons demerara sugar 2 red-skinned apples, cored and each one cut into 8 slices 60g rocket leaves, washed

1. Make the dressing: place the apple juice in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, making sure it doesn't burn, until reduced in half. Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little. Add the mustard and whisk well. Add the lemon juice and whisk again until smooth.

WHERE TO SOURCE THE INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE See page 19 for Sásta Black Pudding.

2. Heat the rapeseed oil in a nonstick frying pan. Add the black pudding slices in two batches and cook over medium heat, on both sides, until golden.

Read more about Ring of Kerry Apple Juice on page 27.

3. While the black pudding is frying, make the caramelised apples. In a non-stick frying pan, melt the butter, add the demerara sugar and cook over a gentle heat for a minute or two until bubbling. Stir well. Add the apple slices and cook over gentle heat until lightly golden on both sides but still holding their shape. 4. To serve: divide the rocket leaves between four plates; place 2 pieces of black pudding on each plate; add 4 slices of apple and drizzle over the dressing.

47

You'll find stockists of Annascaul Black Pudding at annascaulblackpudding.com

Instead of adding the Dijon mustard and lemon to the dressing, why not use Camo's honey and mustard dressing (see page 21) instead: add 1 tablespoon to the reduced apple juice mixture. You can buy rocket leaves and salad leaves from Aidan's Garden (see page 60).
