Irish firm Glenisk has just opened a pop-up store on Dawson Street in Dublin. Named Glenisk Upfront & Personal, the store will remain open for 10 weeks, demonstrating the versatility of Glenisk organic yogurt, through a series of creative flavour combinations, both sweet and savory.
Glenisk Upfront & Personal is managed by Christine Jordan, who has spent three months developing recipes for the store. The dishes feature many leading Irish food producers, including Goatsbridge Smoked Trout and Burren Smokehouse Organic Salmon, while also embracing global food themes. In addition to the smoked fish, savoury options include carrot, beetroot & apple salad with orange harissa dressing; Greek salad and Mexican bean & avocado combinations. Each savoury dish is served with rosemary & olive oil crostini, baked especially for Glenisk by the Paris Bakery on Moore Street.

The store will also offer a wide selection of delicious cheesecakes and smoothies, prepared with Glenisk organic yogurt and crème fraiche.

Glenisk MD Vincent Cleary comments "Glenisk celebrated 25 years in business last year; our fantastic growth in recent years has been achieved largely through embracing new ideas and developing new products. As we embark on the next 25 years, our Upfront & Personal store hopefully demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovation. We're delighted to have the opportunity to meet our customers in person and share our ideas; and we look forward to welcoming them into the store to hear their views. We can promise them a brand new approach to enjoying yogurt and the best of Irish ingredients."
The recipes will be updated each day and Glenisk hopes that customers will share their own suggestions for flavour combinations. Savoury yogurt dishes and smoothies are priced at €3.50, while sweet dishes and cheesecakes will cost €3.00. Glenisk's range of organic yogurt, fresh milk, cream cheese and crème fraiche will be available in the store, along with the brand's goats milk and goats yogurt.
