A SEVEN-course tasting menu will be the treat of the week as Canteen chef owner and culinary supremo Paul Williams takes his inimitable style to the stunning surroundings of Ormston house for a unique pop-up restaurant event this weekend.

Trained under the guidance and genius of Heston Blumenthal, Paul Williams has quietly, but confidently stoked the culinary fires from his Mallow Street Canteen while gathering awards and notoriety along the journey.

This Saturday, Paul shakes up the service style and moves to the art-space setting of Ormston House on Patrick Street for an event that celebrates as much of the raw foodism culture as it does the artists and their work that utilise one of the city’s stunning vistas.

The event aims to raise funds for the artists and to maintain the running and upkeep of the Ormston House space and all while Paul Williams tickles the tastebuds of some 40 guests.

Speaking to the Limerick Post, Paul describes some of the seven dishes that will showcase  inspirations drawn from sources like the Dillisk Project in Mayo and the idea of preparing the food, straight to the plate, with little change but a maximisation of the taste.

Dishes such as, St Tola’s goat cheese with peas and rocket, sloe gin cured salmon with beetroot, a carpaccio of beef with celeriac remoulade and chervil are all to proceed a handpicked black berry tasting plate.

See Canteen’s facebook page or call to the Mallow Street eatery before Saturday for more details.
