A Taste Of Inishowen: Award Winning Seafood Chowder
Kieran Doherty, chef and owner of Nancy’s, with a warm passion for good food creations, tried hundreds of chowder recipes and attempted many things to get it right. He finally came up with a delicious recipe that became an instant hit with his patrons, which he described as; ‘Nancy’s Seafood Chowder with a Spanish twist’. The beauty of it is that the chowder is gluten-free and filed with delicious ingredients.
From Inishowen, Donegal To Rhode Island, USA
In Newport, Rhode Island hundreds of competitors from across the USA will vie for the top places in three categories: Clam Chowder, Seafood Chowder and Creative Chowder at the world’s original and longest-running chowder championships, now in its 36th year. Kieran also credits the success of his business to his supportive staff. Four of his hand-picked team who helped him to triumph in Kinsale at the All-Ireland Chowder Championships will join him in the States as they attempt to bring the ultimate victory back to Ireland as world champions.Nancy's Barn Ballyliffin
