SPONSORED: Dinner is served … gourmet restaurant meals delivered by Sams to your kitchen table
Since staying in became the new going out, everyone is turning to takeaways to help beat the lockdown blues.
But takeaway food doesn’t have to be fast food and it certainly doesn’t have to be junk food.
One Kilkenny restaurant is showing how it can be done by preparing gourmet meals which you can collect or have delivered to your door.
The restaurant is Sams – and the high standards will come as no surprise when you realise that the proprietors are Gerry Byrne and Peter Brady, famed for Kilkenny’s Rive Gauche, Left Bank and the Blue Bar.
They are award-winning restaurateurs for whom only the best will do. And it is the top team of chefs that operate out of Rive Gauche and the Left Bank who are producing the gourmet Italian dishes for Sams.
“With the current pandemic, we’ve had to think outside the box, which led to Sams providing restaurant standard food for delivery or pick up,” explains Peter.
“We’ve expanded our culinary offering, providing Italian cuisine with a contemporary Irish influence, bringing restaurant standard food to your kitchen table.”
A look at Sams’ pizza menu will have your mouth watering.
Fore instance, the Pina Jamon: crushed tomato, honey and mustard-glazed roast ham, with pineapple and Toons Bridge mozzarella.
Or maybe Nduja Baby: Crushed tomato, Toons Bridge mozzarella, Nduja sausage, garlic, honey, Parmigiano Reggiano and fior di latte.
There’s a whole range designed for vegetarians and vegans, including Fun Guy: Crushed tomato, Toons Bridge mozzarella, shimeji mushrooms, and onions with truffle oil.
Sams has classic pasta dishes such as baked cannelloni and tagliatgelle bolognese. Or how about Rigatoni Pollo? Roast chicken breast, bechamel sauce, and mushrooms with Parmigiano Reggiano. Or, maybe, a seafood risotto with prawns, mussels, smoked salmon, cappers, and rocket salad. Or, for vegetarians, a wild mushroom risotto with the beautiful mushrooms complemented by Parmigiano Reggiano, truffle oil and white wine. To accompany your meal you can chose from a selection that ranges from chicken liver parfait, to bruschetta, garlic bread and a wide variety of fries and dips.
Sams delivers within a 2km radius of Kilkenny City or you can pick up your order from their restaurant at 21 High Street, Kilkenny.
