When the chefs confront the first basket, their degrees of expertise with tuna belly come into play. Lamb top round is round two’s mystery protein, and it’s a mystery whose dish the judge like least, until the cloche is lifted. With cayenne pepper and canned pumpkin desserts in the works, one chef has some serious difficulties and races to get everything onto the plate.
CHOPPED viewing party!
Chef Matt Murphy was selected as a competitor for the 12th episode of this season’s Chopped, The Food Network’s cooking competition that’s all about skill, speed and ingenuity. A reality-based cooking series, Chopped is the show that pits four expert chefs against each other for a chance to win it all. Their challenge is to take a mystery basket of ingredients and turn it into a dish that is judged on its creativity, presentation and taste with minimal time to plan and execute. From canned sardines to yucca, these mystery ingredients are carefully selected to keep the chefs on their toes. Each chef gets three mystery boxes, one for each phase of the meal. After each round one of the chefs is “chopped,” so that by the dessert stage only two chefs remain to go on the chopping block. The chef with the most creative, presentable and delicious overall menu is declared the winner. Join us later this month as we catch the action and anxiously await the fate of our favorite local chef!

A céilí (kay-lee) is a social gathering featuring Irish music and dance, and we’re having on on Saturday, June 30 at 7pm. It’s great fun for all ages, bring the whole family! This traditional Irish gathering is for fun, fellowship, and laughs (or craic as the Irish might say). Traditional ceili dances were enjoyed at house parties and corner road gatherings in the rural countrysides.
The New Orleans Eat Local Challenge is back for a second year and better than ever. A handful of restaurants are participating in the challenge, and The Irish House is one of them! The NOLA Locavores are challenging you to go 30 days eating only foods grown, caught, or raised within a 200 mile radius of New Orleans to raise awareness of the nutritional, economical, environmental and cultural benefits of eating locally sourced foods. Beef from Gonsoulin Farms, duck and vegetables from Covey Rise Farm and Gulf Shrimp are just a few of the options you’ll have when you visit The Irish House in a locavore mindset!
Our Eat Local Challenge dish:
Covey Rise Farms Duck confit salad topped with butter croutons, crispy bacon and dried tomatoes $10. Lunch will be an entree-sized salad. Dinner will be appetizer-sized served with a local beer.
The popularity of Irish food products in the U.S. has never been higher. Americans, even non-Irish ones, can’t get enough of items such as butter, chocolate and cheese made in Ireland. MOLLY MULDOON reports.
You can get a large variety of Irish foods in our shop, so stop by next time you’re in!
