The four-course meal has been created by celebrated Irish chef, Robin Gill, whose work spans five restaurants including The Bermondsey Larder, Darby’s and Birch Community. The launch announcement follows the sell-out success of StarChefs’s first release for Chinese New Year with Michelin-starred chef, Andrew Wong.
Each box will contain e four courses of ‘indulgent and refined’ comfort dishes designed to evoke nostalgia around Robin’s experiences of growing up in Ireland, and to celebrate the ‘exceptional’ produce he takes pride in sourcing. The box includes a cast-iron skillet for the main course, and is designed to be a truly celebratory occasion.
Redbreast is completing the experience with two drinks included per person: a Redbreast Old Fashioned cocktail, and a 60ml neat measure of Redbreast 12 years old. The dessert, Pump Street chocolate mousse, is also finished off with a sea salt and Redbreast whiskey caramel.
In addition, all diners will have access to a unique Irish playlist created by Robin himself, and can log on to a whiskey tasting tutorial between Robin and Redbreast’s ambassador, Ronan Collins. They will also find 'fun, themed items' included in their box.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the menu, Robin commented, “St Patrick’s Day is such an important event in the Irish calendar, and for me personally. We opened my first restaurant on St Patrick’s Day in 2013! After the last 12 months that everyone has had, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the occasion than to share an incredible meal with someone you love, bringing to life all those flavours of Ireland – a taste of my home.”
Redbreast ambassador, Ronan Collins, added, “St. Patrick’s Day is about sharing quality moments with friends and family, and this exciting collaboration offers the opportunity to have the full St. Patrick’s Day experience at home with one of the best quality products Ireland has to offer: an award-winning, premium Irish whiskey.”
Boxes will cost £150 for two people, including nationwide delivery. The StarChefs St Patrick’s Day feasting box will be available from their website, and will be available in limited numbers for delivery from Wednesday 17th – Saturday 20th March. Wine pairing packages and additional full-sized whiskies will also be available to purchase through Wanderlust Wine.
