Gill Meller Dinner at the Green Barn

A special guest comes to Burtown on Saturday February 17th, to create a wood fired spring feast, one-night only dinner using the bounty of The Green Barn’s kitchen garden – Gill Meller, key part of the River Cottage team for the past 11 years.

Oyster, Apple, Radish

Author of the award-winning Gather, his gorgeous debut independent cookbook published to much acclaim last year, as well as overseeing the delivery of the acclaimed River Cottage cookbooks, Gill is part of the popular River Cottage Channel 4 series too, cooking alongside Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and he regularly teaches at Park Farm, home of River Cottage HQ, the smallholding and cookery school that produces many of its own ingredients in a simple and respectful way, following an organic model.

A big advocate for simple, seasonal cookery and making the most of ingredients and the natural qualities they possess, Gill Meller has designed the Green Barn menu using the same way of thinking that informs his work at River Cottage – creating a reflection of his surroundings, taking inspiration from the landscape, locality, and the amazing farmers, growers and fishermen that produce the ingredients he uses.

His wood fired spring feast menu uses ingredients from The Green Barn’s own garden, selected in consultation with kitchen gardener Dermot Carey, who at Burtown has been continuing his extraordinary track record in building and transforming some of Ireland’s best restaurant kitchen gardens.
