About me...

Originally  a native of  Kerry, Ireland with a keen interest in food from a young age. I completed a comprehensive 2 year course in culinary arts. This gave me a deep appreciation, a wide interest and the necessary practical skills to further develop my passion for food.

I took the opportunity to apply these skills through wining an all-ireland scholarship to study advanced pastry skills in the USA for three months. On returning to Ireland I worked in 5 star hotels to Michelin starred restaurants.

I'm now a  Newbury based professional with experience across the industry working in some of the finest hotels and restaurants in the UK and Ireland. 

I have experience at Michelin restaurants and most recently as a freelance chef  in Michelin starred establishments. 

Now I'm bringing my  culinary skills and knowledge to you on  a personal level . With the flavours of home at the heart of the dining experience. I offer an intimate safe dining experience in your home or chosen venue.

“Everyone has a wonderful afternoon, it was a great way to get in the festive spirit. I would like to thank all staff, volunteers, St Nicolas Church and our caterers, ‘Casual Dining By John’, for all their support and hard work to make sure the day went smoothly for our guests.”

The Mayor of Newbury, Cllr Billy Drummond

We’ve ordered the afternoon teas a number of times now and they’re always delicious and taste really fresh. Great delivery service too.

Would highly recommend!
