We recently had a visit from Top Irish Chef Rachel Allen. Rachel was filming for a new program co produced by BBC and RTE. Rachel travelled up the West coast of Ireland following the Wild Atlantic Way all the way from Cork to Donegal. Focusing on the fantastic food available, wild and otherwise!
Rachel and the crew stayed at Teapot Lane after a day at Mullaghmore beach foraging for Seaweed with local author of a fantastic book Irish Seaweed Kitchen www.irishseaweedkitchen.com
After arriving at teapot Lane they all enjoyed homemade apple tarts made by my Mum who was delighted to be baking for Rachel Allen! Rachel and I did an interviewed in one of the yurts where she asked me all about my business from start up to what’s on offer for my guests. I told her all about the great hen parties we host with campfire, food and a live DJ and she thought it sounded amazing! I explained how during summer months we focused on family holidays providing breaks especially for families and couples during July & August…..Meanwhile Ivan the member of the crew responsible for making their delicious meals was busy preparing dinner in our kitchen cooking with seaweed of course, 3 yummy salads Chicken and fresh mackrel that had been caught earlier in the day at Mullaghmore.
A great campfire evening ensued! Music by local musicians Colin Gillen and sisters, we all had a fantastic evening enjoying local craft beer provided by White Hag ale. It was great night, I was delighted to hear from Rachel and crew who all agreed it was the highlight of their entire month filming! Delighted to be able to host them and I can’t wait to see Rachel’s new show is 2016.
