Galty Valley Food Truck
Mary O’Farrell’s story is a simple one: brilliant cook offers delicious food served from a van, creates devoted audience who follow her from location to location, keeps on getting better and better.
Watch this space.
Ms O’Farrell is one of those multi-tasking mavens who make things look easy. She can, for example, cook every style you can think of: Hanley’s beef chilli with cheese taco sauce, guac and sour cream is the authentic taste of Tex-Mex food at its best. She makes a chicken and chickpea masala curry served with toasted almonds and mango relish and it’s pure Mumbai street food at its best. She makes a hake fritter with a batter using 8 Degrees beer served with seaweed salt and Rick Stein himself would walk to Kilbehenny just to eat it.
Just as importantly, Galty Valley keeps developing, moving forward, catering for weddings and functions of every stripe, winning awards, creating a new mobile bar, creating new products, developing new menu ideas whilst staying faithful to the GV classics – the Crowe’s Farm pork with onions and bbq sauce; the classic organic beef burger with GV relish and a warm brioche bun; the foot-long sausage with crusty sourdough; the Black Forest chocolate cake.
If you aren’t already an acolyte of Galty Valley, then you are quite simply missing out on some of the best cooking in Munster. You need to get the GV in your life, and to enjoy the cooking of Ms O’Farrell an imperious culinary talent.
