In the first stop-off on the Mayo North Food Series Part 2, head chef Kathleen Lally of Cafe at Foxford explains her philosophy of “simple seasonal food, done well”, and demonstrates how important community is both to the business and their food offering. Using local suppliers and fresh herbs grown on-site, they try to make sure their menu changes with the season.
The public can visit this beautiful three-acre, Victorian walled garden and select what they fancy for purchase. Lovingly tended to by head gardener Aine Bell, the garden, which has been an organic garden for over 20 years supplies many local restaurants in the region. Organic allotments are also available to the public.
In the final visit of the Mayo North Food Series Part 2, owner and chef Gerry Luskin tells the story of his new family-run business in its beautiful cobblestone courtyard located right on the Wild Atlantic Way, and shows how running a small bistro allows him the flexibility and creativity to tailor classic dishes using local ingredients sourced from suppliers just a short walk away from his business.
