Gill Meller Dinner at the Green Barn

We are excited to welcome back Gill Meller on Saturday June 2nd, to cook a wood fired June feast using the bounty of our kitchen gardens, tunnels, fields and hedge groves, whilst working with some excellent local organic suppliers of meat, poultry and fish.

Gill Meller, key part of the River Cottage team for the past 11 years, will be visiting us at The Green Barn for his third time. An inspiring and creative chef, who understands the importance of using only the very best seasonal organic produce, is an inspiration to many.

Gather by Gill Meller book cover

Author of the award-winning Gather, his gorgeous debut independent cookbook published to much acclaim last year, as well as overseeing the delivery of the acclaimed River Cottage cookbooks, Gill is part of the popular River Cottage Channel 4 series too, cooking alongside Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and he regularly teaches at Park Farm, home of River Cottage HQ, the smallholding and cookery school that produces many of its own ingredients in a simple and respectful way, following an organic model.

A big advocate for simple, seasonal cookery and making the most of ingredients and the natural qualities they possess, Gill Meller has designed the Green Barn menu using the same way of thinking that informs his work at River Cottage – creating a reflection of his surroundings, taking inspiration from the landscape, locality, and the amazing farmers, growers and fishermen that produce the ingredients he uses.

His wood fired June feast menu uses ingredients from The Green Barn’s own garden, selected in consultation with kitchen gardener Dermot Carey, who at Burtown has been continuing his extraordinary track record in building and transforming some of Ireland’s best restaurant kitchen gardens.
