An Irish Kaiseki Experience by Brid Torrades is a specially crafted and health-giving tasting menu using local wild and farmed ingredients. All ingredients will be from within a 100km radius. It takes place in Osta Cafe & Wine Bar, which will be specially adapted to create an immersive dining experience.
Brid has studied the nutritional and health benefits of ingredients which are available in nature and has compiled a visually and tastefully beautiful menu which is balanced in every way.
Your host Chef Brid Torrades recognised the wealth of Irish food and culinary experience before most and has been protecting and promoting it in her unassuming way for over 30 years. Through her involvement with Euro-Toques over a 23-year period, she has defended artisan food practices and natural food resources at a European level, as well as promoting and participating in food education initiatives.
Brid’s interest in food began at age three or four, “drooling over pictures in cookery books”. When she was 14 her parents set up Malahide's first coffee shop. She eventually took it over and trained as a chef. Along with her French husband Marc, she opened Glebe Country House in Sligo in 1990, and ran it for 15 years, during which time it was listed almost every year in the Bridgestone Guides (now McKenna’s Guides) 100 Best Places to Eat in Ireland and 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland as well as many other select guides.
Her great belief in the quality and freshness of Irish ingredients and determination to source them direct from farms, as locally as possible, influences everything she does. It remains the philosophy behind her current outlets, Osta Café & Wine Bar and Osta to Go, in Sligo town, which offer casual but high-quality local fare at affordable prices.
