Every few months, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant at Downtown Disney hosts a signature dinner series with Chef Kevin Dundon.
This past March 13-14, the signature event was entitled ‘A Tale of Two Chefs’ and featured Chef Kevin Dundon and Michelin-Starred Chef Derry Clarke.
Irish celebrity chef Kevin Dundon and his best friend, renowned Michelin-starred chef Derry Clarke, proprietor of the award-winning Dublin restaurant l’Ecrivain, collaborated to entertain guests during “A Tale of Two Chefs” gourmet Signature Dinner.
Chef Kevin Dundon, known for his five-star Dunbrody House hotel and cookery school in Ireland, is Raglan Road master chef and creator of the pub menu as well as author of multiple cookbooks.
Michelin Star Chef Derry Clarke has been chef/owner of l’Ecrivain for more than 22 years. L’Ecrivain has been awarded a Michelin star every year since 2003.
The Tale of Two Chefs Signature Dinner included craft ale and wine pairings, and featured both classic techniques as well as more modern ones like creating garden herb foams for the potato salad, and pea panna cotta. One of my favorite items from the meal was a twice cooked potato that came with a rack of lamb…the flavor and texture of the potato was truly amazing.
Below are some photos of the wonderful evening:
First Course – Langoustine in Kaffir Pastry with Tomato Jelly and Chili Jam
Second Course – Potato Salad with a Garden Herb Foam
Third Course – Sweet Pea Soup served with a Pea Panacotta
Fourth Course – Rack of Spring Lamb and Braised Cottage Lamb Pie, Farm Fresh Vegetables with Twice-Cooked Roast Potato
