Chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Denis Cotter, of acclaimed Cork vegetarian restaurant Paradiso, is bringing his unique style of meat-free cuisine to Overends Kitchen, Airfield Estate, for one night only on Friday, 22nd July.
Guests will enjoy a celebration of seasonal produce with a five-course tasting menu created by Denis in collaboration with the team at Overends Kitchen. All courses will feature seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs grown on Airfield Estate’s 38-acre farm, selected by Denis along with Head Gardener at Airfield Estate, Colm O’Driscoll.
This specially curated dinner will kick off with a welcome cocktail at 7pm, with Denis presenting each course. All dishes will highlight the flavours of the Estate while showcasing the versatility of vegetables and the intensity and complexity of flavour that Denis is known for.

The event marks the first in a series of monthly collaborations with visiting chefs at Overends Kitchen with future participants set to be announced soon. Denis Cotter is delighted to be the inaugural chef in this series of events saying: “As a long time admirer of Airfield Estate’s work on vegetable research and production as well as Overends Kitchen’s sustainable ethos, I am excited to get this opportunity to collaborate with both Colm in the garden and the kitchen team at Overends Kitchen to produce a uniquely seasonal menu.”
