I have been a chef since the age of 17. I have been vegetarian since I was 15. I did my training in WIT & the Granville Hotel. I have worked it a variety of restaurants and catering establishments and run a successful catering company from my home in Tipperary.  For a number of years I ran a vegetarian stall at Kilkenny Clonmel & Carrick on Suir markets.  Which I understand was the first veggie stall in Ireland.                                                                                                                         

When  my daughter was born my career took a back seat for a while…                                                            I ran a pop up Vegetarian restaurant in the Watergarden Thomastown for 2 years. When the opportunity to open a vegan restaurant in Kilkenny arose I was delighted though it was a bit of a whirl wind. Within 3 weeks of finding No 4 Ormond Street we opened our doors and I still pinch myself as it is my dream come true.                                  

Food and healthy life style is my passion in life…. I love to share it with as many as possible as it’s the key to our health.
