MICHELIN STAR CHEF

My taste, style and passion for fine cuisine have defined my career story as an accomplished chef that has presided over some of the world’s top kitchens. In a neverending quest to deliver paramount hospitality experiences, I have travelled the world for new inspiration to marry with my classical training and techniques. Through the years I have written and published world-renowned cookbooks.

 

I have also starred in many TV cookery shows and presented the shows “Conrad’s Kitchen” and “Head Chef”. After owning Michelin starred restaurants in Dublin and several concept restaurants in Dublin, London and Cape Town. I now work as a private chef with my International team for high profile families, operating villas and palaces around the globe. We supply very skilled private chefs and butlers to estates, homes and yachts, around the world.

 

I am CEO of Food Concepts 360 an International hospitality company that creates new restaurant concepts for Hotel and Restaurant Companies. I co-manage with my wife Candice Gallagher, the very popular chefs recruitment agency The Chefs Connection an international chef agency placing Michelin star chefs around the world.

 

Late 2020 will see, the opening of The Chefs Playground, a new culinary event space where avid cooks can shop for chefs toys, chefs tools, chef cookbooks, designer chefs clothes and host cooking classes and culinary events including food product launches and pop up dinners.

 

December 2021 will see the re-opening of the legendary Michelin Star Restaurant – Peacock Alley after an almost 20-year break. The restaurant based in St Francis Bay, Eastern Cape will open December – April for dinner only 7 pm – 10 pm and will offer a tasting menu only.

AUTHOR

Outside of my work in the kitchen, I enjoy writing. In 1996, I penned my debut book, published by A & A Farmer and aptly named Conrad Gallagher New Irish Cooking. The cookbook earned critical acclaim, “…one of the best cookbooks of 1996.” My second cookbook was published 1998, One Pot Wonders, published by Kyle Cathie Books, London. It too was a wonderful hit, selling in 4 different languages. This was soon followed with, In 3 Easy Steps in 2002 and Take 6 Ingredients  in 2004, both published by Kyle Cathie Books, London. 101 ways to a perfect potato, to be released September 2020. I have also starred in many TV cookery shows and presented Conrad’s Kitchen and Head Chef.

Getting hot in the kitchen. It’s the stuff of office gossip and tabloid headlines – the illicit workplace romance where the doctor runs off with the nurse, the pilot literally flies off with the cabin attendant, the teacher and the school principal have their own kind of “homework” – and, yes, chefs making off with the hostess are right up there.
