Second Michelin Star for Cork restaurant
A Cork restaurant is celebrating after being awarded a second prestigious Michelin Star.
Dede, in Baltimore from chef Ahmet Dede received their first star in 2021.
The Michelin Guide said of Dede.
“Chef Ahmet Dede’s Turkish heritage underpins his beautifully composed and exquisite cuisine. Skilful, judicious spicing hits all the right notes so never comes close to overpowering the fine local ingredients; purity and balance are never at the expense of flavour. The whole brigade of nine in the kitchen are all from Turkey, and Ahmet’s personality imbues every creative yet authentic dish. The room is always alive with atmosphere and contentment, with service coming from charming co-owner Maria and her delightful team.”
Meanwhile Terre, at Castlemartyr Resort is the newest Cork recipient of a Michelin star.
Terre opened in 2022, and is headed up by chef-patron Vincent Crepel
Cork restuarants Bastion in Kinsale, Chestnut in Ballydehob, and Ichigo Ichie in Cork Cityhad previously received a star and have retained them for this year.
