Guinness x Handsome Burger

 

This collaboration is more than three years in the making. Back in 2017 we were touring round the coast of Ireland and stopped off in Galway, west Ireland for two nights. Handsome Burger had a pop-up at one of the many pubs on our route so we stopped in to sample the goods. And very good they were – some of the best burgers we’ve tasted anywhere.

We made friends for life that night with co-founders Rory and Cathal showing us the local sights until the early hours. Since then have shared many a pint of Guinness with them in Ireland and back here in the UK. You can’t cheers St Patrick's Day without a Guinness, so when we decided to make it happen this year we knew exactly who to call.

Our Paddy’s Day special is a celebration of Ireland’s most famous export but also a couple of the smaller players that make the Galway’s food scene so special. Handsome helped us find Kylemore Farmhouse, a local cheesemaker who have been making award-winning cheeses for 60 years using the highest quality raw natural cow’s milk from their strictly grass-fed herd. The ‘Kilnalahan Reserve’ cheese in this kit has been aged for two years for a parmesan-like intensity. We hope you have as much fun cooking and eating it as we did making it.

Sláinte!
