Maker: Cathal Armstrong
Native Dubliner, Cathal Armstrong, Chef and Co Owner of Restaurant Eve was born into a family with a passion for food. Unusual for families living in Dublin proper at the time, they had a fruit and vegetable garden, ate plenty of garlic and had their own travel business. Armstrong was exposed to the cuisine of other cultures by his father and developed an appreciation of gastronomy. According to Armstrong, “My father was a natural, a great cook.”
This Irish chef still cherishes the memories of working alongside his father in the family garden. It was in France, at the tender age of seven, that Armstrong began his annual student exchange and his food curriculum for life. These influences instilled in Armstrong the importance of organic growing and sustainability, before they were buzzwords. Today he honors that tradition by demanding the highest-quality ingredients from a handpicked network of suppliers revered for their wholesome products.
