This is shaping up to be one of the hottest tickets of summer 2019.
A 100-year-old West Cork pub is the venue for a pop-up Jamaican-themed dinner happening on Saturday, July 20th.
The barn and gardens of Tots Pub in Ballygurteen will be transformed into the Grub ‘N’ Dub Club as part of the latest collaboration between food writer Kate Ryan of Flavour.ie and Cork city duo Conor Lyons and Aaron Comerford of RockSteady Food Co.
Each dish on the set five-course menu, revealed only on the night, will feature one or more of RockSteady Food Co’s range of Caribbean Sauces and Condiments.
During the day, all the food will have been slowly marinading in a heady mix of spice, citrus and herbs, ready to be cooked slowly over charcoal on the night to a soundtrack of reggae, ska and soundsystem.
Sounds like heaven.
“Tots Pub has stood on the five-crossroads in Ballygurteen, just outside of Clonakilty, for over 100 years and has a legendary status as being one of the most welcoming local bars in the region.” says Kate.
“We will be once more transforming their barn for one brilliant night of food and music, and the courtyard will be our outdoor Grill Kitchen for over the fire cookery!”
All of the ingredients and produce on the menu will have been grown, raised and sourced in Cork, mostly within West Cork.
Tickets for Grub N Dub Club are €55pp and include welcome drinks, snacks, starters, family-style main course with sides, desserts, sweet-petites and DJ set. Book your tickets here or call Kate Ryan on 086 2059360 for further details.
