Imelda Tynan has the magic in her fingertips, and it’s a magic that she uses in collaboration with another key ingredient in her culinary repertoire: inspiration. Put magic togethr ith inspiration add in top quality ingredients, and you get Tynan’s at the Storehouse, a gem of a restaurant, in a most unlikely, and magical, setting.Ms Tynan learnt her stuff from one of the best bakers in the Midlands, her late brother, Jim Tynan. Mr Tynan’s baking in The Kitchen and The Food Hall in the centre of Portlaoise was legendary. When there was little good cooking and baking to discover in the Midlands, Mr Tynan’s food was revelatory. But it was his baking, and his pastry, that were particularly notable. Ms Tynan is continuing that proud family tradition: she bakes for the Gods, her brilliance shown to best effect in the Irish domestic bakery dishes where her control is utterly regal.The other magical ingredient of Tynan’s is the superbly committed and efficient staff, who match the boss every step of the way, every day. So, turn off the motorway and make syour way to The Storehouse, and enjoy some of the finest food in the Midlands.
