Happy 10th Birthday Clontarf!

Join us this weekend 12-4pm to celebrate Clontarf's 10th Birthday! We have lots of fun activities planned for the day, including our executive chef Niall Hill demonstrating the art of Plank BBQ cooking! Niall will be showing us even the 'fancy' chefs can get their hands dirty on the BBQ. Niall will be on site from 12pm noon until 4pm so do not miss out! "Teach a man how to barbecue and you will be fed for the summer". A truer word has never been spoken and our Cedar Planks are just what every barbecue needs to ensure a beautiful smokey flavour on all meats throughout the summer season. Plank cooking involves roasting and smoking food on cedar or oak planks in a closed-top barbecue. Plank cooking is a technique Niall first witnessed in Canada, and now that we have the weather for outdoor grilling, the planks are on sale in all 9 of our shops priced at €3.95. Niall has produced a number of easy to follow recipes, all of which are available online. We know that summer is in full swing here at The Butler's Pantry when we take our first delivery of treated Cedar Wood planks from Gerry Farrelly's estate in Roundwood, Co.Wickow. The aroma of the handcut planks becomes a distinctive feature throughout our shops, and indeed our customers BBQ's. We are so delighted to celebrate Clontarf's 10th Year. We want to celebrate this and also use this opportunity to thank you, our loyal customers for making this possible. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Lauren, Manager of Clontarf on 01-833 3314. Lets PARTY!!!

Our NEW Apple Tart has Arrived!

Our apples are lovingly hand peeled and hand sliced, creating a homemade apple tart that melts in your mouth. Nothing says tradition better that an apple tart, this is why we have taken the time to recreate our tart to be the best it can be. Our new and improved version brings you more delicious apples wrapped in our sweet hand made shortcrust pastry. Do not be alarmed if your apples are caramelized as you cut into your tart as we take pride that this is the natural process in which fresh apples mature. All of our delicious cakes are make by hand and contain only natural ingredients bringing you homemade delights without the hard work. It is available in all ten shops for €9.25. Hope you love it as much as we do!
