homegrown: James Kavanagh & William Murray, Currabinny (Fri, Aug 9th, 6.30pm)
Friday, August 9th, 6.30pm - 9.30pm, €45
James Kavanagh and William Murray, an artist, Ballymaloe-trained chef and part-time barman at L’Gueleton restaurant, have written The Currabinny Cookbook, a handsome well-structured collection of recipes using traditional, seasonal ingredients, given a contemporary slant.
Under the Currabinny banner, the pair do occasional private catering gigs and pop-ups, sell food at craft fairs and markets, and hope to eventually launch a homewares range.
What kind of food can you expect fro the duo? - "We wanted a cookbook where the recipes wouldn’t scare your granny, but the would also impress a young person, that would make you get excited about things again. – Murray"
