Ramen Chef and Food Rebel
Chef Brian Donnelly grew up in Co. Tyrone where he spent summers working on his grandparents’ farm, drinking raw milk, churning butter and cutting turf. (And no, he’s not that old.) After a career spent working for some of the UK and Ireland’s most famous chefs, he was inspired by Tokyo’s ramen culture, and by the similarities between the native produce of these two islands. When he looked for a good fresh, local noodle supplier, he could not find one anywhere in the UK or Ireland. So, he decided to make his own.
