Heron & Grey pride themselves on using local Irish produce and change the menu every two weeks!Damien first spotted Roisin at Broiche in Ranelagh when she was only in first year, and immediately knew she would be a great addition to his restaurant once opened due to her natural flare for the culinary arts.A busy woman, in first year after winning a Tabasco competition, she won a trip to Avery Island in Louisiana, and in her second year tutors chose her to represent DIT at a catering college just outside Toronto. We’re sure we’ll hear much more from this amazingly talented young chef.Well done Roisin from the team at Donegal Daily!Young chef bags Michelin Star Award was last modified: October 15th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BarnesmorechefDITdonegalheron and greymichelin star awardroisin gillenlast_img
