June Tasting At The Camden Kitchen
What better way to extend a bank holiday weekend then by having an Elite event at Camden Kitchen on a Tuesday evening? There is no better way unless you invent a time machine but I digress. Hidden away from the busy Dublin streets is this bistro that forces you to relax and then gets you excited again by it's culinary delights.
Magali, the manager, explained to us that their mission is to give their customers great locally sourced food at affordable prices. Their early bird is 2 courses for €18 which ain't too shabby! As we all relaxed upstairs and got to know old faces and catch up with new faces a steady flow of bites came our way. Such as...
Homemade chicken liver parfait with nectarine chutney, country style pork & cornichon terrine, arancini with Wicklow blue cheese and citrus cured salmon with langoustine mayonnaise. Are you hungry yet? Take a breather because there is more! Confit duck with celeriac puree & apple with was served on a spoon and no one had difficulty getting their mouth around it. Goats cheese croquette, black olive puree Bayonne ham croutons and last but not least fresh pea & truffle risotto.
All this was washed down with some delicious French wines that Alan from www.frenchwines.ie taught us about. They were Domaine Saint Amant, Las Clapas, 2008, Rhone Valley and Domaine Michaud, Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, 2010, Loire Valley. They thoughtfully paired the wines to the bites that we salivated over!
A glorious evening with friends on a sunny June in Dublin was had. Thank you so much to Magali for helping plan the event and for all the Camden Kitchen team for going to such efforts with the food that they presented to us Yelpers. Thank you also to Alan for sharing his French Wine knowledge. Thank you for coming out to give Yelp your time! You can gossip about the night here. Review the event here. And most importantly look at yourself in the photos here and drool over the food once more too!
