What an incredible way to kick start St. Paddy's Week at The Bauer Kitchen! Last night we had our Straight Outta Dublin Dinner hosted by the Irish Real Life Festiva l - Kitchener- Waterloo. The sold out event catered to the palettes of the curious and the hardcore lovers of authentic Irish cuisine. The menu was developed between Chef Brain McCourt and Chef Dermot Walsh (Northside Vs. Southside) and though it was deemed as a competition, it wasn't in the slightest!! In fact, The five courses come out so beautifully crafted and balanced due to the blending of the two "sides".
The dining room was lively and social, which reflected the food and it only got better as the night went on! Thank you to the culinary team and front of house team who worked extremely hard for a flawless event. Also, a warm thank you to all the guests who joined the festivities, we hope to see you next year for round 3!
