What 3,000-year-old plant has been used as an aphrodisiac, a treatment for rheumatism,
a bitter herb for Passover and a flavorful accompaniment for beef, chicken and seafood?
If you guessed horseradish, you’re right.
That is what Tony our veg man brought us yesterday
Established in Milltown, Co. Kerry by Arkie O’Shea in the mid 50s and eventually moving to Killarney
O Sheas are carrying on the family tradition of providing the highest quality fruit and vegetables to Kerry businesses and the Killarney Park hotel.
Tony’s family, Clara and Anthony (third generation) offer a selection of fresh organic products and are proud to be working with a wonderful selection of local farmers,producers and suppliers.
From one O Shea to another
Bernard O Shea our junior sous chef and king of the clan makes good use of this fiery product
When making beef wellington he adds a couple of spoons of our own horseradish cream to the mushroom duxelle because “it simply works so well” so he says.
This starter of smoked mackerel pate ,Crab meat remoulade and cured sea bass went down a treat
a hint of horseradish was used in every component of the dish.
The Killarney Park Hotel isn’t just for O Shea get togethers, so meet with your clan and enjoy some local produce in the Park restaurant.
You wont be sorry Tony says.
