Kelvin's Food Blog

Food – Life, Passion, Art & Fun!


Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my blog. This blog was created as a result of procrastination from studying for my final exams! My name is Kelvin and I am a passionate foodie. Having a background in hospitality, food quickly became a major part of my life. I was born in the city of Johor Bahru, Malaysia, and moved with my family to Ireland at the age of one. I spent my childhood growing up in Navan, Co. Meath. I attend Gormonston College secondary school where I led the badminton team to victory in the Dublin & Leinster schools competition. After my leaving certificate I went on to study at ‘Hotel Management’ at Shannon College of Hotel Management. I spent 3 wonderful years here, including a year long work placement, and met some fantastic people along the way who have grown to become great friends. For my final year of college I transferred to the National University of Ireland, Galway to complete my ‘Commerce’ degree and I specialised in the Management Information Systems stream. Galway also allowed me to rekindle my second passion in life, badminton where I was part of the university team and learned about ISBT.

I was born into the hospitality industry and starting my working career at the early age of 12. I worked with my dad Michael by helping out in the family restaurant. He is a great chef and loving father, the perfect role model and one of the reasons why I wish to pursue a career as a professional chef. Over the past few years I have worked in various hospitality establishments around Ireland, Belgium, UK & the Seychelles. I enjoy travelling and experiencing new cultures, especially new cuisines. Click the button below to see my Curriculum Vitae.
