We’re delighted to say our very own chef Paul McClelland  beat off some very stiff competition to claim the winning title in the recent “Taste of Enniscorthy’ competition run as part of this years Strawberry Festival. The official tasting took place on 26th May and the winner was announced over the weekend of the festival.

Judged by Rebecca O’Connor, one of her last jobs as 2016 Strawberry Queen and Sven Herreman, Pastry Chef at Monart Destination Spa, they were looking to find “the most mouth watering dessert of the summer” & from just looking at this dessert we can see why Paul beat the 7 other finalist’s to win.

Inspired by the ever popular summer cocktail of choice for the Bailey Bar ladies, this dessert is made from a  strawberry daiquiri mousse, on a bed of pomegranate and strawberry jelly wrapped in a chocolate wafer.

Chef is taking a well earned holiday this week but once he’s back next week, we hope to add this tasty dessert to our menu so everyone can get a chance to taste the “Dessert of the Summer”
