Good cooking starts with good produce and when you have the richness of the Irish larder to choose from there’s an opportunity to really soar. What you see on a plate in Chapter One is an expression of many artisans, many landscapes and much hardworking talent. And all that happens long before the cooking even begins. Many of our specialist growers and artisan producers have been supplying us since the earliest days in the nineties.
Our location on the Northside of Dublin was a notoriously difficult place to trade. Yet people who cared about food came, and suppliers who were passionate about their uniquely Irish produce came too – integrity of produce was what united us. We rely on their drive, passion and determination to achieve so much of what we do here and their influence cannot be underestimated.
