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.
