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.
