Neven Maguire Birgitta Hedin Curtin Burren SmokehouseIrish food hero and great supporter of locally produced foods, chef Neven Maguire, visited North Clare in the summer of 2020, and visited a few chefs like Peter Jackson from the Armada Hotel (Spanish Point) and Viv Kelly at Russell's Food Shop in Doolin.

He also spent quite a bit of time at the Burren Smokehouse in Lisdoonvarna where, to his surprise, he discovered the new visitor experience called "Taste the Atlantic - Salmon Experience". Owner Birgitta Hedin Curtin guided him through it and discussed wild and organic salmon.

He was given the VIP treatment and let into the smoking area which normally is off limits for the public. In the family-owned pub next door, the Roadside Tavern, where he tasted different kinds of our Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon and paired them with master brewer Peter Curtin's brews, among them the Euphoria, a hop-less fruity beer brewed with wild yeasts collected in the Burren and locally collected herbs.
