Rívesci (ree-vess-ee) launched in September 2019 at Clonmel Applefest offering cooked from scratch dishes from their 1976 vintage caravan.
Co-Founders Shannon Forrest and Michelin Star trained Chef, Declan Malone felt that opening a food truck in the off-peak season might be a little mad but it didn’t stop them. After spending many months researching and working on their menu offering they found there was a huge appetite for what they wanted to do. Successfully trading at Savour Kilkenny, Applefest Abbeyleix, Ballymaloe and Dunbrody House, Rívesci wished to set up a more permanent basis in Clonmel, and up until mid March 2020 traded at the Quay Car Park and Clonmel Farmer’s Market every week. During the first COVID-19 lockdown Rívesci pivoted their business to become full time condiment makers and for the time being, no longer appear at festivals or markets. This will change in the future so be sure to stay tuned!
