Survival Solutions – Gastronomic Getaways

At Galway’s five star g hotel, for example, General Manager Damien O’Riordan, Executive Chef Stefan Matz and Head Chef Regis Herviaux recently welcomed guests to a press event which featured Connemara Smokehouse smoked tuna, Connemara Abalone (deep fried and served with a divine barley and basil ‘risotto’), McGeough’s of Oughterard organic Connemara lamb done three ways, and a delicious Bluebell Falls (Co Clare) goats cheese and apple dessert.


The line-caught tuna from Connemara Smokehouse, which was then smoked, was served three ways: as a chilled gateau with pears , in a tuna and leek crumble, and as a crisp tuile on a creamy cabbage soup. All prepared by Stefan Matz & Regis Herviaux of The G Hotel in Galway.

It was divine – a lovely subtle smoked salmon that melts in the mouth.
