Kevin Thornton

Kevin Thornton is the great philosopher of Irish food. His passion, understanding and drive to bring excellence to the plate has made him Ireland’s highest achieving chef. He was the first Irish chef to achieve two Michelin stars. His cooking, while contemporary, is informed by the distinctive flavours of local produce, and by his vivid memories of the food of his childhood. Just as important to Kevin is the keen appreciation of nature which inspires both his cuisine and his photography. Kevin is also a food writer, teacher and photographer.
