FOOD IN IRELAND
This year in food we have seen a few new great cookbooks from the Island of Ireland. None as much anticipated as Martijn Kajuiter of Cliff House Hotel's One Star Michelin Restauarant, The House Restuarant, new book called Let's Go Disco that he co-authored with Alex Meehan, and Shane O'Neill, photographer. A treat in anyone's book to dine here and to stay, Martijn keeps the place hopping with his latest food inventions and tempting our tastebuds with crazy combinations that thrill the senses and make you wonder "what's next" ?
Being one of our favorite places to stay in Ireland, Cliff House Hotel sits high above Ardmore, looking over the Atlantic ocean with breathtaking scenery, rain or shine. It is the ultimate in understated luxury, affording the client a respite from the rest of the hurried life we all seem to lead. I love taking clients here to experience the area, take in a little R&R and have the luxury of dining in one of the best places on the planet.
The photographer, Shane O'Neill, takes us on a journey through food photography for Let's Go Disco, video above, and it is always amazing to watch any food photographer at work. It's an amazing talent and we are very honored to have been allowed to take you behind the scenes through Shane's eyes, to one of our most beloved chefs in Ireland.
We wish Martijn, Alex and Shane much success with the new book and I am looking forward to cooking from the book throughout the winter. We'll keep you posted on our blog on how it all turns out! Much Success Lads!
Let’s Go Disco
Let’s Go Disco . . . a call to arms regularly heard in the kitchens of The Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, County Waterford, and now the title of the forthcoming book from Michelin-star chef Martijn Kajuiter.
With 36 dishes, 200 photographs, essays, interviews and an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the life of a high-intensity, high performance kitchen, Let’s Go Disco illustrates why The Cliff House Hotel has been at the forefront of Irish gastronomy since opening in 2008 and why Dutchman Kajuiter is widely considered to be amongst the most accomplished chefs working in Ireland today.
An initial print run of 100 ‘special edition’ copies of the book, priced at 68 euro, were produced in advance of the book’s official launch. Cased in laser-etched, brushed aluminium, these boxed collector items sold out in 24 hours through word of mouth on Twitter.
The main body of the print run, 4,900 copies, goes on sale from October 24th, priced at 45 euro. Books are available online from www.thecliffhousehotel.com and from both the Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, Waterford, and from the Cliff Townhouse on Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green.
