Though Ireland may have dragged around a less-than-stellar culinary rep in the past, the destination has without a doubt transformed into an epicurean paradise. We hear that The Lodge at Doonbeg is embracing Ireland's transformation by offering a taste of local ingredients and traditional Irish dishes with The Educated Irish Chef, a new culinary series.
Slated to run monthly throughout the year in the hotel's Darby's Bar, the series will highlight the talents of Executive Chef Wade Murphy, who will lead creative demonstrations of the dishes.
The series will run in Darby's Bar at 2 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month throughout the year. The cost is $20 per person and the schedule includes:
Lovers of Local Seafood (April)
Sipping Irish Coffee (May)
Tasting St. Tola's Goat Cheese (June)
Doonbeg Pastry (July)
Getting to Know Cider (August)
Doing Doolin Jam (September)
Fall Harvest (October)
Wake Up with Irish Breakfast (November)
Holiday Cheer (December)
