:: Foodstock: Cooking for 500 people in Paris! Sure why not!

Viellée Foodstock - 24th March 2010

Le Chalet Des Iles

Way back in October I got a tweet from the lovely Trish Deseine, who many of you might know from her hugely successful series on RTÉ, where she guides viewers through just some of the vast range of delicious French dishes. Trish was born in Belfast and later moved to Paris, where she mastered her French cooking skills. She asked me if I would be interested in coming to Paris to cater an event and put me in touch with Raphael, from Le Fooding®, a Parisien magazine which seeks out the coolest eateries in the city. After lots and lots and lots and lots of emails back and forth we finally organised everything for the event which is going to be taking place in Paris at Le Chalet Des Iles on the 24th of March. From what I can gather, the event will have live music and is like a mini woodstock with food! It sounds really exciting and with only 2 weeks to go I cannot wait! The event is sponsored by Jameson whiskey and Bord Bia are sponsoring some of the ingredients from my recipes. These are the dishes I will be serving up on the night:

- Irish Seafood Chowder served with Chilled Smoked Salmon

- Kelly's Of Newport Black Pudding and Cashel Blue Cheese Salad

- Mocha Meringues with Jameson Whiskey Cream, Chocolate Sauce and toasted Hazelnuts

- Jameson Ginger and Mint Iced Fire Cocktails

If you just so happen to be in Paris that night, please do come along, I am not so sure how it works with the tickets but I have been told there is quite a demand, and people queue outside the venue to get in, so I guess you could come down and try your luck!
