Irish Kid Goat Gets Gourmet Treatment

I've long been a fan of Neven Maguire of MacNean House & Restaurant in Blacklion, Co. Cavan and I've been lucky enough to both eat and stay here on a number of occasions. The experience is simply the pinnacle of Irish food and hospitality.

Neven’s obvious appreciation for the exceptional quality of food we have in this country has always been reflected through his books and television work and I was delighted to recently see Kid Goat added to the MacNean House menu.  The dish reads as follows:

Kid Goat - Smoked Loin , Confit Leg & Foie Gras Terrine & Braised Shoulder Bon Bon.

Not only does it sound delicious but is visually stunning, you can check it out here. It is wonderful to see one of Ireland’s best and most loved chefs giving quality Irish goat meat the recognition it deserves and demonstrating the potential of this exceptional product.  I wish Neven and his team continued success.
