Little Marrakesh is an idea by two friends and fellow food enthusiasts to bring authentic Moroccan food to the streets of Dublin city.
Paul Kavanagh a chef of fifteen years worked at several Michellin starred restaurants here in Ireland and in the United Kingdom including Gordon Ramsay and Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud. Most recently Paul was head chef for Domini and Peaches Kemp at ITSA4 Sandymount in Dublin 4. Paul visited Morocco last year to observe first-hand the flavours and techniques used by the cooks of Morocco.
Dave O’Shea, an IT specialist previously employed by KPMG for nine years, always had a keen interest in cooking and in particular ethnic cuisines such as Moroccan, Thai and Korean food.
Paul and Dave from Little Marrakesh comment “As a fan of ethnic foods we had a particular interest in Moroccan food for a number of reasons. The scope for healthy vegetarian dishes was huge. More often than not, vegetarian foods in restaurants is more of an afterthought on the menu and can often consist of a generic house salad or a mushroom risotto or vegetable and mozzarella stack etc. We intend to offer vegetarian dishes as interesting and flavoursome as our popular meat dishes”.
We are excited at having Little Marrakesh at our lunchtime food markets. The fragrance and flavour of the slow cooked meat and vegetable tagines is particularly aromatic when walking through the market since they came onboard, similar to the smells you would enjoy when walking through the streets of Morocco.
Currently at our Sandyford market we gently suggest you give them a try
