OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY
Really Good Food is very important to us and our food philosophy commits to quality supply and produce with continual focus on seasonal, artisan, local and Irish sourced ingredients. Variety is key and we have classic, traditional, modern and healthy all wrapped up in our menu choices. Supporting local and recognising award-winning producers plays a key part in our whole food ethos – our Lamb and Beef is sourced from various craft butchers using livestock exclusively from the pastures of Leinster, our Milk, Wexford Ice Cream and Farmhouse Cheese comes from free range cows, our Signature Tomato Chutney is made in-house from locally grown vegetables and our Seafood is simply the best from Kilmore Quay & Dublin Bay.
HEAD CHEF MARK PHELAN - Bio
Truly dedicated and passionate about what he does, Mark (a native of Kilkenny) leads a team of talented and inspired chefs all of whom live and breathe our top quality food offering at Clanard Court. Mark's background is impressive, having worked his way up through the ranks in some of Ireland's leading restaurants, hotels and country houses (past and present) - Doyle's Schoolhouse, Tinakilly, The Park Restaurant, Shanaghans, Cahernane, St.Ernans, Dunraven Arms, Rivercourt Hotel and Lyrath.
His own food heroes who have inspired him along the way, are Irish chefs he has worked with such as John Doyle, Colin O'Daly and Fergus Moore, not to mention the great French chefs Raymond Blanc, the Roux Brothers and Marco Pierre White. And when's he's not cooking up a storm in the kitchen, his other great passion (that he is very good at) is gardening!
