Kinsale’s Rare 1784 featured in a new series on Irish cuisine by John Torode


Kinsale’s new restaurant, Rare 1784 at the Blue Haven Hotel, features in the next episode of John Torode’s Ireland on Thursday 11 August. This new food and travel series currently airs every Thursday and Sunday on Food Network and Discovery+ to global audiences.

Rare 1784 is a craft Irish cocktail and dining experience located in Kinsale at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way. They recently opened a new Moët garden, which you can enjoy before choosing to dine from their tasting menu or the a la carte small plates.

In this mini-series, celebrity Australian-British chef, restaurateur and cookbook author John Torode learns about Irish restaurants and meets local producers, farmers and chefs who are making their mark on the Irish food scene. In the series to date, Chapter One and Ballymaloe House have been featured.

Blue Haven’s Ciarán Fitzgerald and Chef Meeran Manzoor along with the Rare crew hosted John Torode and his film crew at the restaurant for two days to film and taste.

Ciarán commented, “We were very honored to have one of our food icons, John Torode, come and see what we do at Rare. The past 2 years have allowed our team to get creative and think outside the box when it comes to creating Rare. We then focused on execution and delivery, bringing the creativity of the food and beverage team to the customer in a very different and unique way. We are very proud of our team and excited to have their work showcased to a global audience in the John Torode series.

Chef Meeran commented, “I’m from India and when I was a teenager we used to watch Masterchef. It’s something I’ve always followed. It’s crazy to think that the circle is complete, from me as a viewer to now participate in a program with John Torode, cooking a dish for him and with him. It was a special moment to cherish for me. »
