A native of Dublin, Ireland, Kevin found his calling at an early age and he enrolled in the Dublin Institute of Technology studying Culinary Arts. From there he began his career by securing his first position at Venu Brasserie, working under Chef Denis Massey. It was not long before Kevin’s talents were noticed and he was offered a position at the renowned Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud: Ireland’s only two Michelin-starred restaurant. Under the guidance of head chefs Guillaume Lebrun and Kieran Glennon, Kevin developed a passion for French cooking and an appreciation of the importance of high quality produce. His culinary journey then took him to London, where he took on the position of sous chef at Jason Atherton’s Michelin-starred Pollen Street Social. In search of a new and exciting challenge, Kevin joined Jun Tanaka’s newly opened restaurant, The Ninth, in 2015. Within the first year they gained a Michelin star. Kevin focuses on the finest seasonal produce and vibrant, honest flavours.
