Discussing: Immigration and Food [ Monday: 3.30pm ]
Jess Murphy (@KaigalwayMurphy), owner and head chef of Kai in Galway. Voted the best chef in Connacht by Food and Wine, Jess has worked in some of the finest kitchens and offered up the highest standards of food. Originally from New Zealand she made Ireland her home working for Kevin Thornton, the Michelin starred chef. Following her experience she moved to Galway where she was head chef at Ard Bia for 4 years, before setting up the kitchens at Bar 8 where she won her Food and Wine award. The love and passion Jessica has for food is reflected in her daily menu at Kai. Depending on what seasonal, fresh produce is delivered by trusted local suppliers each day, the menu changes. Jessica?s ethos is very simple; all produce is fresh, seasonal, local, and where possible, organic.
