Do you want to eat wholesome, natural food, made by real people with a passion for what they do? My mission is to:
Source the finest ingredients that I can.
To select small scale producers, making their food as naturally as possible.
To present interesting dishes to you, prepared and served with an attitude of gratitude!
Thanks and blessings x
Championing award-winning, artisan producers along the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland in general. It is my ethos to support local artisan producers and help them put food on their tables, by putting it on yours! A few foraged products come from further afield, but these are kept to a minimum and aid local conservation.
The Gallery is Ireland's first Natural wine bar, and puts the planet before profit as much as possible. It is the first bar in Ireland to remove avocado from the menu. (The 'Green Gold' is controlled by cartels in South America, resulting in thousands of farmers being murdered. In Chile locals are having to rely on water trucks for all their water needs and once flowing rivers are now bone dry.
The Gallery Westport, is possibly the first place in Ireland to consciously have a Palm Oil, and GMO-free menu, ban any kind of single use take away cups, (instead I promote conversation and ask people to remember to bring a flask or offer them a ceramic cup donated from local people and charity shops).
I also banned salmon from the menu on environmental grounds and only use ethically reared, natural habitat charcuterie.
I am learning all the time about food and its production, in particular soil regeneration, healthy soil with zero added 'nasties' = healthy food!
