Terre chef Vincent Crepel ‘thrilled’ to receive Michelin star after just six months
It’s an incredible achievement.
Terre at Castlemartyr Resort has entered The Michelin Guide with one star, just six short months after opening.
The pride of Cork’s five-star Castlemartyr Resort is one of two Leeside restaurants celebrating tonight, with Ahmet Dede’s restaurant Dede At The Customs House in Baltimore scooping a second coveted star.
Twenty new stars were announced in the Michelin guide for Britain and Ireland, announced this evening.
A ‘stunning and early reward’
Opened last September by chef patron, Vincent Crepel, Terre is a 38-seater restaurant in the 17th-century Manor House of Castlemartyr Resort and Crepel’s first restaurant in Ireland.
Starting his career in France, Crepel subsequently worked in several renowned international restaurants from the three-Michelin-star Arzak in San Sebastian, Spain, and Restaurant Andre in Singapore, to the historic Restaurant Hôtel de Ville Crissier in Switzerland.
“Gaining one star after such a brief period of time is a source of immense pride to me and my team at Terre,” he said.
“It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this level so quickly. It is a stunning and early reward for achieving our goals for Terre.”
