Kate’s menus are heavily influenced by the local ingredients in season and on offer in Cork including fresh seafood from O’Connell’s Fish Merchants and meat from O’Mahony Butchers in the city.

 The menus also reflect the rich crop of cheese producers present in the county supporting Gubbeen and buffalo mozzarella from Toonsbridge.

Specialist mushrooms are regularly sourced from North Cork from Ballyhoura Mountain Mushrooms.
