Restaurant FortyOne Chef Crowned Euro-Toques 'Young Chef Of The Year' 2016
Euro-toques Ireland has named 23-year-old Maeve Walsh (pictured) of Restaurant FortyOne at Residence the winner of Young Chef of the Year 2016.
The final saw the six chefs cook for a panel of judges which included two Michelin starred-chef Nathan Outlaw; Graham Neville the commissioner general of Euro-toques Ireland and head chef at Restaurant Forty One; Paul Kelly of the Merrion Hotel; and Wade Murphy of Limerick's 1826 Adare, reports The Irish Times.
"I was doubtful that I would be picked as one of the finalists, never mind the winner. The whole process has been amazing and I have learned so much," said Walsh.
Walsh impressed the judges with a lamb dish inspired "from the seasonal products that are native to Ireland" and will now be invited to do an all-expenses paid work experience at 'Restaurant Nathan Outlaw'.
