Description

Brian McDermott has built a national reputation as a chef on one simple belief - that tasty, healthy food based around traditional recipes and local produce is something every family can make and enjoy. As one of twelve children growing up in Burt in County Donegal, the focal point of the family was always his mother's kitchen table, and that childhood memory of the family coming together and connecting over her home cooking continues to inspire Brian as he shares his own passion for food with others. Whether it's cooking freshly-caught mussels for the fishermen at Greencastle pier or sharing his skills with others at his cookery school, Brian loves to celebrate the best of his home county's warmth and traditions.
