Born in Co. Donegal, the rugged northwest of Ireland, a true education started very early with a father chef and full-time farmer of hill mountain lamb and a true appetite for food began.
He headed to London, and for the next 6 years he was to be in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Knightsbridge a far cry from the rain sweeping mountains of Donegal. Aidan then travelled to Bangkok to learn more about Asian flavours. He worked on the openings of Michelin star Restaurants such as Dinner by Heston and after headed to Launceston place ( one Michelin star)
Veering away from the norm he then took over the Truscott Arms, a London pub and came to the fore within months, winning national acclaim Sunday Times Best Sunday roast in Great Britain, top 10 best pub in the country and Tatler chef nominee for one to watch; sadly after landlord conflict & rent hikes they had to close it. Now Aidan is back in Mayfair heading up Richard Corrigan’s flagship Restaurant where Irish food and produce are coming to the plate with a weekly delivery from Richard’s Virginia Park lodge Cavan Estate.
