Kai Restaurant on Sea Road in Galway Artist in Residence program is this year celebrating local heroes, and who better to start with than Galway westend legend Ernie Deacy on Sea Road. Kai Restaurant Artist in Residence is Ciara Coogan (Cicoillustrates)who illustrated an apple tart recipe from Kai, Ernie and the shop front, this design was then printed onto linen cloth tea towels.

With apples from Ernies, Kai has recreated a firm favourite the apple tart.  This recipe and a look at Ernie’s is depicted through Ciara’s illustration. This is the inaugural year for an artist in residence at Kai, through food and art, we wanted to celebrate local. We only use season produce and what is available in our restaurant every day so why not showcase local and the west through a piece of art.

“Ciara had been into Kai illustrated so many beautiful piece on our cakes and brunch, she was the perfect for this project. We launched the tea towel collective on Thursday and already there have been sales to Australia, Canada and England, sure look everyone wants a piece of the westend with them,” explained Jess Murphy of Kai Restaurant.

The Kai Artist in Residence program aims to celebrate local artists and food producers and local food champions that Kai uses every single day. The Ernie Tea Towel is on sale on Sea Road for €10, for more information call the landline on 091-526003, just drop in sure or get social on line, we are on the Instagram and THE Facebook and THE Twitter.
