Chef Brian McDermott is one of only a handful of Irish chefs with a Culinary Arts Degree, graduating top of his class. A successful career working in the kitchens of some of his native Donegal’s most lauded establishments and a senior global product development role in Kerry Group ended when Brian was diagnosed with a chronic heart condition.
As a result, Brian changed his lifestyle and consequently his cooking style and quickly established a reputation for himself as “the no salt chef”, cooking great tasting, accessible and affordable food without adding salt. Brian has his own weekly cookery slot on BBC Radio and is a regular contributor to many Irish press titles.
“I cook clean and honest food with no hidden ingredients like cream, fat or added salt. I let the ingredients speak for themselves, if pork is the main ingredient, I want to taste the pork. Instead of adding salt, I use herbs & spices that complement, but don’t overshadow the main dish. It’s important that my food is healthy, doesn’t contain any added salt, but above all tastes fantastic!” - Brian McDermott
