Paradiso has been honoured at the global World Restaurant Awards, winning the category ‘Collaboration of the Year’ for its work with Gortnanain Farm.

Even in an era of awards overkill, this is a hugely satisfying honour for Paradiso, for the chef behind it, Denis Cotter, and by extension for Ultan and Lucy of Gortnain Farm also, as it recognises and celebrates the working relationship between restaurant and farm that has been at the heart of what Paradiso is for almost two decades.
