Knockara Pates

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

“Free-range. Grass fed.”
Those two essential terms are the vital elements of Maria Mulcahy's delicious Knockara Pates, and they signal the wise attention to husbandry and provenance that makes Ms Mulcahy's cooking so elemental, tasty, and delicious. So when you chance upon the Knockara Pates stall at farmer's markets, you can expect excellent chicken, duck and pork liver pates, but also smoked salmon pate, and fine terrines, all of them demonstrating Ms Mulcahy's sure touch, and her confident culinary technique. That technique is vividly demonstrated in her expert nut loaf, for here she resurrects the old vegetarian classic, giving it a lightness and brightness that makes it modern and clean. And the ever-changing array of special dishes for the day might include sausage rolls; spinach soup; a nasturtium butter; bright green pestos and a nice, light hummus. Get to the stall early, and lunch is sorted in an instant.
