Top chefs Jonathan Keane and Philippe Farineau will seek volunteers from the audience to assist them in our version of the popular TV show.
Jonathan is the Executive Chef in The Lodge at Ashford Castle and Wilde’s Restaurant. The son of a sheep farmer and gardener he grew up beside nearby Kylemore Abbey. He first started working in a professional kitchen at the age of 15 and immediately decided that this was the career path for him. Having trained with some of the west’s finest chefs he was a Head Chef by the age of 22.
Philippe is a chef with world-class experience. Having left his native France in 1998 he came to Ireland to work in a number of the country’s finest hotels before becoming Executive Chef at Ashford Castle. He sums up his philosophy in four words: French heart, Irish produce.
