As a young lad living in rural Donegal, when we drove past Nancy’s Barn then known as the Craft Shop I would say to my parents when I get bigger I am going to buy that old shed. In 2008 that dream came true, I bought the building and in 2010 opened it as a seasonal coffee shop. Business has flourished and we are now opened all year round serving fresh homemade baking, great coffee and delicious food. Growing up living by the sea and sharing a passion for food with my grandmother she taught me many things about fresh baking and seafood. She would always say how chowder was a poor man’s lunch. She was not to know then how the passion we shared for food would lead to her grandson to become the World Chowder Champion. I tried hundreds of chowder recipes and tried many things to get it just right. I finally came up with a recipe that drove my customers wild. Nancy's Seafood Chowder with a Spanish Twist. The beauty of it all is that the chowder is gluten free and filled with delicious quality ingredients.
The Secret to any good dish is keep it simple, wholesome and tasty all the way.
