Welcome to The Guerrilla Gourmet Club where we bring you Ireland's finest, and often smallest, producers.
The launch menu has been created by Ross Golden-Bannon, restaurant critic at the Sunday Business Post, Robert Lee Mulcahy and Gareth Mullins, executive chef at the 5 Star Marker Hotel Dublin. The organisers have joined forces with the prestigious Stephen's Green Hibernian Club, who will host the event on the summer solstice, Friday 21 June at 7:00pm.
The five course menu will match anchor artisans with national and international profiles to fledging artisans. Tickets are €75 and include wine & tasting beers. For more information visit: www.facebook.com/TheGuerrillaGourmetClub
It's also an opportunity to dine at the Stephen's Green Hibernian Club without being a member. You will dine beneath the best example of a Lafranchini ceiling in Dublin City, comparable to that of Castletown's stairhall or Carton's gold saloon. The is guerrilla dining in style.
Here's what we're proposing for The Guerrilla Gourmet Club Menu. But this doesn't include the inevitable fight between myself and the chef, I mean, really, an eight-hour-cooked shoulder of Connemara Hill lamb? Shouldn't that be eight hours and five minutes?

Slow Roasted Silverhill duck with a raw vegetable salad, Pat Clark’s coriander cress and hoi sin vinaigrette
NB Dedicated foodies know we'll have no control over the weather, growing times and harvesting. Still, that hasn't stopped us planning a sumptuous feast. If we do need to make changes we'll be replacing products with ones of equal excellence.
