Musgrave Marketplace Foodservice Brochure

Last week I went to Tedfords Kitchen for the launch of Musgrave Marketplace’s new Foodservice Brochure.

The brochure showcases the extensive range of products available from Musgrave MarketPlace, including meat, diary, fruit & vegetables, delicatessen, fish & shellfish and crisps & snacks.

At Tedfords we were treated to a four course meal, showcasing the type of fantastic dishes which can be created using the Musgrave produce.

The first course was a selection of crostini using La Boulangerie des Gourmets artisan breads.

The selection consisted of:

  •  Tomato and fennel crostini served with seasonal fare courgette marinated in lemon and garlic oil with goats cheese
  • Onion and smoked lardon crostini served with chorizo and seasonal fare roasted red peppers with sour cream
  • Olive crostini served with Wright’s smoked salmon with crème fraiche

This dish was fantastic because of the combination of the flavours in the artisan breads with the fish/meat/cheeses. I particularly loved the chorizo with the roasted red peppers!

For the second course we could either choose between a curry roast monkfish or a duo of beef. Luckily Barry wanted one and I fancied the other, so I got to try both!

The monkfish was served with fragant coconut rice, stir fry seasonal fare bok choi, tiger prawn wontons and curry oil.

The duo of beef was a pan fried Irish beef fillet steak served with a braised beef cheek on a bed of roasted beetroot and root vegetables, fondant potatoes and rich red wine sauce.

What can I say about the fillet steak- the meat was so tender and just fell apart. It was juicy and rich- perfect!

For dessert, again, we were able to choose between two dishes and Barry and I went for one each. (The best way!)

I had the Fusco chocolate ganache pudding, while Barry picked the Paganini Salted Caramel Apple Pie cheesecake.

The pudding was a chocolate lover’s dream- the chocolate oozing out with the touch of a fork! Yum!

And the other dessert? Well, I love salted caramel, I love apple pie, I love cheesecake- who would have thought of putting them all together! Brilliant!

We finished with a selection of Irish and Continental cheeses. These were Baby Gubbeen (Cork), Cashel Blue (Tipperary) and Manchego (Spain), and came served with caramelised onion chutney and crackers.

I had never tried the Baby Gubbeen before and love being introduced to Irish produce. A lovely way to end the meal.

We had a great time with gorgeous food so thank you to Musgrave! Check out my video from the night too! ​​
