Daniel returns to Strokestown for this years food fair and we're delighted that he can join us and he'll be cooking up a storm for everyone in the demonstration area.
Daniel is Executive Head Chef at the highly acclaimed Kilronan Castle.

He began his career in the Hotel & Catering industry in fine dining restaurants and hotels, in the beautiful scenic region of the Cotswolds, England. Daniels plan was to temporarily re-locate to Ireland in 2003 after finishing work in a 2 Michelin Star restaurant he wanted to re-charge his batteries and focus on his international travels. His mother originally from Waterford and father from London were building a house in Mayo in which he lent a hand throughout the development, he fell in love with Ireland during this time and you could say, the rest is history ...
