Turned up to 11.
That's the octane that Ted Berner and his Wildside crew work at. Max power, Max effort, Max returns.
Whether they are catering your wedding, or cooking for thousands at a music festival, or feeding the crowds at a corporate bash, Wildside burn as brightly as the Irish hardwoods they use to cook their superb, superbly sourced meats. The energy of the crew, their zest for good times, not to mention their sheer relish for hard work, transmits itself into some of the most delicious, vital food you can eat. The flavour is turned up to 11. It’s Irish cooking, at 110%.
But, to be honest, cooking fab food is just one element of what Wildside offer. At their best, what they serve up is an immersive, transformative experience, a full-on baptismal dunking in the wildness of food and drink and service and hospitality, an event that can be almost spiritual. Working with his partners in Queens of Neon – that's the service part – and Allbarnone – that's the good grog part – Mr Berner delivers an eating experience that is, in fact, performance art in action.
“There are no restrictions on creativity!” he says and, believe us, there are no restrictions on anything when it comes to Wildside. So dream up your wildest idea for a party or a birthday bash, and Wildside will deliver them, with bells on, with great service, with great grog, and with the primordial smell of hardwoodwood smoke.
