Take your pick: learn how to cook authentic Irish or just sit back, relax and savor some of the best Irish food this side of the pond. Chef Kevin Dundon is in the house at Raglan Road for an exclusive luncheon and culinary “master class” on March 14, then a Tables in Wonderland signature dinner on March 15, part of Raglan Road’s weeklong St. Patrick’s Day Celtic celebrations.
Lunch celebrates the launch of Chef Dundon’s new cookbook, “Recipes That Work,” and he’ll prepare some of his favorite recipes during the four-course meal: cappuccino of Colcannon soup; poached pear and Cashel blue cheese salad, and line-caught Atlantic cod pan fried with a tomato vinaigrette sauce. Dessert is inspired by high tea at Dunbrody Country House, his place in Ireland, with “Kevin-made” petit fours, coffee and tea.
Dinner on March 15 is a 5-course, contemporary study of Irish cuisine with Chef Dundon, who will start the evening with an intro to his philosophy on food. Each dish is artfully paired with a delicious wine, starting with ham hock terrine, crisp pork belly and quenelle of potato; next is cream of garden pea and fresh mint soup; oven-baked George’s Bank scallop and puff pastry tart; pan-seared sole with an Irish seaweed salsa or roast rack of lamb in Irish consommé, and Baked Alaska, and Irish coffee and cupcakes. Then, anyone up for a little Irish dancin’? Lunch starts at 2 p.m. on March 14. Cost is $55 plus tax and gratuity and includes a gift bag. Book by calling Lorraine at 407-938-0300.
