The Search for Ennis’ Favourite Dish is on!Props_small

The Ennis Food Festival committee in June and July 2016 undertook a survey to find out what restaurant customers in the town of Ennis enjoy most on their dinner plate. The exciting prize of the competition involves ‘A team of chefs cooking and serving at your house’.
The Survey ‘Ennis’ Favourite Dish’ was closed in August – but our Search went on!
5 restaurants took on the challenge of creating their own their individual versions of the Ennis Dish and present them for judging in early September.
Our judges had the hard (but tasty) job of picking the best out of 5 amazing entries and they decided our winning dish to be:DiningRoom
Panfried Fillet of Irish Beef, Celeriac Puree, Honey Roast Carrot and Parsnips, Spinach Moss, Oxtail Ragout with Horseradish Mash.
created by The Dining Room

The dish will be available at the Dining Room throught the festival days. And a owner Christian Heta will do a Cookery demonstration at our Gourmet Food Village on 24th September at 2pm.

Ennis and Clare diners like Beef! But they also fancy a nice salad.

The winner of our competition will be announced during Ennis Food Festival. Thank you to everyone who took part.
