Adrian Cassidy is the new Head Chef at the Brabazon Restaurant in Tankardstown House, replacing Rob Krawczyk. Adrian has been at the helm since Tankardstown reopened after the Christmas period and is beginning to put his own stamp on the menus, including dishes such as a creamy sunchoke veloute, brill succotash, and sheep’s yoghurt soufflé with winter berry sorbet.

He is looking forward to including more local producers on the menu, particularly as Tankardstown is so active in the Boyne Valley Food Series. Adrian started his training in the Killybegs School of Catering, and worked in Restaurant Barboulud and in the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge in London, as well as in The Arts Club in Mayfair, before returning to Ireland.
