We are Chef Network
An exciting professional network connecting all chefs throughout Ireland
We are inclusive
Bringing together chefs from all sectors, at all stages of their careers, to communicate, collaborate, share and innovate.
So whether you’re a student starting out, or an experienced chef with many years behind you, if cooking is your career, Chef Network is for you.
We are focused
On education & training, business development and professional development.
We want to foster greater cooperation and engagement between Ireland’s Chefs so that they can take the lead in driving the industry forward at this exciting time in Ireland’s culinary journey.
Working together, our aims are to:
- Attract and Retain chefs in the industry
- Improve standards of training, recognising the industry's key role in this and encouraging greater collaboration with the education sector,
- Promote and Maintain culinary skills.
We believe the drive for all this must come from chefs themselves.
We are proud
Of the camaraderie in Ireland’s chef community. We hope to build on this, encouraging chefs to work together, learn from each other and share knowledge, ideas & resources.
We are supported
By IFSA, the Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance, and developed in consultation with leading chefs from across all industry sectors in Ireland North and South, under the leadership of Ruth Hegarty, Head of Community for Chef Network.
We are also supported by The Chef Network Advisory Council: a voluntary cross-sectoral group of chefs from across Ireland who all share a passion for driving the industry forward, nurturing future talent, and contributing to positive kitchen culture.
We will work
On an on-going basis with a cross-sectoral advisory council of chefs to ensure Chef Network remains relevant and useful to chefs. The Chef members themselves who will dictate the shape that Chef Network takes and what activity they want to see.
