A Taste of Inchydoney

September 04, 2015

Last night "A Taste of West Cork Food Festival" kicked off with our Gala Dinner here in the Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa.  Our Head Chef, Adam Medcalf, treated all of us royally to a feast that will linger long on the taste buds.  In a packed and lively Inchydoney Room, the night was a dizzying assortment of the best of the best foods from West Cork.  Adding a touch of sparkle to the night was Bibi Baskin who has recently moved back to these shores from Kerala, South India where she owns Raheem Residency, a Boutique Heritage Hotel in Alleppey Beach.  Now back in Ireland she has made Cork her home.  You may have recently heard Bibi’s dulcet tones on Corks 96FM “Opinion Line” and hopefully we will be hearing much more from her now she’s back.  The ever entertaining George Hook, fresh from broadcasting his Newstalk Drivetime show from the hotel earlier in the evening, regaled us all from the stage with some of his choicest anecdotes!

Every day, the best food and products from West Cork are delivered to our door.  Organic Vegetables from the Devoy Organic Farm in Rosscarbery.  Bright red strawberries bursting with flavour from Bushby’s Rosscarbery Strawberries.  Smoked fish and meats from Ummera Smokehouse in Timoleague.  Skeaghanore fresh farm duck from the Hickey’s at Roaring Water Bay.  The freshest produce of the sea from Shellfish De La Mer in Castletownbere.  These and many, many more are what makes our Gulfstream Restaurant one of the finest places to eat in West Cork.  At the helm of our kitchen is the incredibly talented Adam Medcalf.  Since 2005, when Adam joined us first, he has worked his way from Commis Chef to Head Chef and our gain is England’s loss.
