Ballyrobin Country Lodge Events

We love it when guests come back including Celebrity Chef – Jean-Christophe Novelli

Naturally we love it when guests come back to stay or dine with us as it’s a sign of a job well done. So we were delighted when Celebrity Chef Jean-Christophe Novelli came to stay and dine with us as he paid a visit to Balmoral Show 2017.

Jean- Christophe chose from the dinner menu and had the following tasting dishes :

Bowl of Spanish Arbequina Olives with Achill Island Sea Salt & Seaweed Bread & Abernethy Butter
Lobster Cappuccino, Seaweed Powder, Sea Salt & Rosemary Bread
Wild Turbot, Charred White Asparagus, Fennel Veloute, Borage & Monkfish Cheek
Braised Ox Cheek, Hannans Salt Aged Chamber Beef, Confit Carrot, Roscoff Onion Textures

The following morning after a good nights sleep he had a full cooked breakfast and took time to go into the kitchen to thank Ephriam the chef personally.
Jean-Christophe was so impressed with the staff all staying late the last time he dined at the Ballyrobin in 2016 – his flight was delayed and all the staff stayed late for him to dine.


When he heard he was staying at the Ballyrobin he was delighted as he likes the style of the food and the quaintness of the hotel.
We look forward to welcoming him back soon !
