Here is what they had to say:
Kai Café and Restaurant
“At the award-winning Kai Café + Restaurant, light streams through a generous roof-lantern into the rustic stone-and-wood dining room, giving a visceral sense of connection to the west coast’s rugged landscape, from where the ingredients for its dishes are sourced.
With a focus on doing things simply, owners David and Jessica Murphy have created in Kai a food experience that is at once basic and innovative, unadorned and yet beautiful. Having recently joined the Food Made Good (Sustainability), their ethos is one of conscious symbiosis with their environment.”

Tinar with Kai and 3fe
Coffee is obviously our raison d’être here at 3fe but over the last couple of years our chef Hillary O’Hagan has managed to gain quite a reputation with our food offering. We recently decided to kick things on a bit and are delighted to announce our upcoming colab dinner on the 28th May.
TINAR is an occasional event we’ll be holding at 3fe where we’ll get one of our favourite chefs to come in and collaborate with Hillary on a tasting menu. This month we’ve chosen Jess Murphy of Kai in Galway who has built a reputation as one of the best chefs in the country and won many awards along the way.

This is ticketed event limited to 40 people and we’re selling tables of four and two**. Wine can be paid for separately on the night and we’re working on some really interesting pairings and pricings for those interested in trying a few different types.
Doors crack open at 7pm on Thursday 28th of May and we’re looking forward to a great night with some excellent food and drink. This event is sure to be extremely popular, so book early to avoid soul-crushing disappointment.

You all asked for it, so it’s back with a bang. This month we are restarting everybody’s favourite book club. Yet again Jess is combining two passions to entertain and teach those interested in food. There are book clubs, and supper clubs the world over – but no cookbook clubs, until now!
The club is about people learning, talking, and sharing their passion with others. “It will be great for people to share their love of cooking and cookbooks with like minded people. The club will be a place for individuals and groups of people to come and talk about food, ask questions, and find out how to be a better home chef” says Jess.
For each club we try to seat people together to make new friends, meet old ones, and share their common passion. Along with a set menu from the book we will have a special guest talk on the night.
The club nights sell out very fast so it’s advisable to book ASAP. This month Jess will cover Roberta’s cookbook. This innovative page turner is straight out of NYC and is packed with unreal recipes.
The book is a product of a Brooklyn destination that the New York Times called “one of the most extraordinary restaurants in the country, which began as a pizza place and quickly redefined the urban food landscape”. If that’s not reason enough to sign up, pick up the book yourself and find out more.
Tickets are available in advance from the restaurant at €35, this month’s event is on Tuesday 28th January at 7:30pm. These events fill up fast so get in quick.
If you fancy a sneak peak at next months book – look up Smoke and Pickles!
