JOCcooks-John O' Connor is a native of Nenagh, Co Tipperary, and is from a family with a long history in the food business.


I completed the comprehensive 3 month course in Ballymaloe, East Cork in 2013. This gave me a deep appreciation, a wide interest and the necessary practical skills to further develop his passion for food. 


I took the opportunity to apply these skills when working abroad in New York and London from

 2013 - 2016. I varied my culinary experiences by harnessing new skills at a Japanese restaurant, agency work in high-end & casual restaurants and city street food vendors, and The Standard Hotel NY whilst also making sure I kept up with the more traditional cuisine he grew up with. I have a passion for food and hospitality. I have a wealth of knowledge and over 15 years experience to cater to your desired menu requests.
