We're getting far too used to seeing Robin Gill around these parts. One of our most impressive exports when it comes to food and cooking, the Dublin-born, London-based chef has been back and forth over the past few months doing events and dinners at Chapter One, Glovers Alley and Airfield, and now Bresson in Monkstown have announce he'll be cooking there next Thursday, the 4th October, alongside best pal Paul McNerney (Paulie's Pizza, Junior's, The Old Spot).
Despite Bresson's menu being classic French, Robin and Paul will be cooking Italian food inspired by their time (separately) working on the Amalfi Coast, and the six-course dinner will include antipasti of panzarotti (deep-fried dough pockets - need we say more), agnolotti pasta, hand-dived scallops, roast rack of veal, a cheese course, and will end with fig panna cotta. Robin, whose book 'Larder' was published earlier this year, will be bringing salumi, nduja, pickles and ferments from his London larders, in restaurants The Dairy, Sorella and Counter Culture.
The menu is €85 per person, with the option of matching wines for an additional €65, or wine can be ordered by the bottle or glass, and Bresson are promising more special events over the coming months. Although this isn't going to be a cheap night out, we think it sounds like a pretty amazing evening, and a chance to experience Gill's ethos of great produce and seasonality up close, which he says he learned in Naples.
Robin Gill is spending so much time here lately that we think it would be better for everyone if he just moved home already, and if we get any news on that you'll be the first to know.
