 Wed 12th June 2024

2024 marks two significant anniversaries for Irish-owned FBD Hotels & Resorts, as Faithlegg in Co. Waterford celebrates 25 years and La Cala Resort in Costa del Sol, celebrates 35 years in business. This June the two properties are coming together for a special event to start the celebrations by hosting a 4 Hands Dinner.

On Saturday, 29th of June at La Cala Resort on the Southern coast of Spain, Faithlegg’s Executive Chef Jenny Flynn will join forces with Executive Chef Brian Deegan of La Cala Resort to showcase the talent and produce of both countries.

Born in Ireland, Brian Deegan, originally from Dublin, creates menus with an authentic connection to Andalucía, showcasing the unique local heritage and taking influence from his surroundings in Mijas, Málaga. While Jenny Flynn, from Wexford, has built long lasting relationships with local producers and artisan suppliers in Ireland creating bespoke seasonal menus that capture a taste of Waterford across Faithlegg’s restaurant and bars.

Together the two chefs will create a menu of authentic Spanish and Irish dishes over 7 courses. Executive Chef Brian Deegan will create a “Mar Azul” tomato salad with Irish apple as the starter, followed by traditional Spanish fish dishes such as scallop served with Caviar Riofrio, cauliflower, plankton beurre blanc and Almadraba tuna served with organic lentils, baby spinach and roast jus. Executive Chef Jenny Flynn will serve Irish Skeaghanore salt marsh duck, wild garlic dust, root vegetables, star anise and orange jus. Guests will enjoy a Spanish and Irish cheeseboard followed by Jenny’s dark chocolate delice with caramel jelly, Irish yogurt and rosemary sorbet and ‘Barry’s tea fudge’ created by Brian.

Each course will be perfectly matched with a wine from Spanish wine producers including Morosanto Blanco, Bestué Chardonnay Barrica, Augustus Trajanus, Lucio Tinto Ronda, Maestro Viña Axarkía.
