Revealed: Rachel Allen’s special Christmas menu for local culinary event
CELEBRITY chefs Rachel Allen and Martin Shanahan and Rachel Allen have just unveiled what they’ll be cooking and baking as the count-down to this year’s long-awaited Culinary Christmas programme up the road in Carlow gets underway.
Tickets for Rachel’s demonstration at Visual on Friday, December 7, are almost completely sold out. And seats for Martin Shanahan on the previous evening and the side-splitting celebrity cook off on the final evening on December 8 are booking up fast.
Martin Shanahan will open proceedings with his Culinary Christmas offerings which include Seafood Crumble, Mediterranean Hake, mouth-watering Mussels, Chorizo, Shallots and Parsley and a magnificent Monkfish Pil Pil. He finishes his demo with his own take on a family favourite, Gratin of Smoked Haddock and Spinach.
Rachel Allen’s Friday night show will equip attendees with everything they need to wow family and friends and includes fabulous food from sumptuous starters to delightful desserts, and everything in between. She will make Brown Soda Scones, Smoked Salmon Pate, Celeriac Soup with Roasted Hazelnut and Avocado Salsa as well as roast root vegetables and glazed Brussels Sprouts.
Head of Enterprise with Carlow LEO and Carlow Culinary Christmas’ Kieran Comerford said: “We’re delighted with the level of early ticket sales. It really reflects the strong food culture in Carlow and in the surrounding counties. These demos are a fun evening out and will also give attendees some extra tips on how to make it much easier and a lot more stress-free when cooking or baking for family and friends across the festive season.”
