Hi, Shane here from Meet me at Phillies. My passion for food started at a young age, seeing my mother cook up a storm in the kitchen; you couldn’t help but be interested. Learning about spices, herbs and the different styles of cooking gave me the drive and passion to start this journey that I’m still on today.
I started my culinary career in Tralee, at the Institute of Technology, studying culinary arts. I must say I owe a lot to this institute and the mentors within. The gratitude I have for the knowledge and skills I was taught while learning my craft is indescribable, all I can say is a humble thank you to them all. They say "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for his lifetime". Never has a sentence felt more apt.
You might ask "Where did the idea of Meet me at Phillies come from?". Two places! Chef Roy Choi, who was the inspiration behind this venture, and a small dream of someday running my own business while showcasing the great produce Ireland has to offer.
Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to travel, which in turn has given me the chance to experience the wonderful cultures and culinary practices that the world has to offer. Where ever I would travel to, I would look forward to tasting the local cuisine and often enough street food markets I found were the best place to find local ingredients, fresh flavours and mouth-watering dishes. This inspired the idea of Meet me at Phillies; the freshest locally sourced ingredients cooked right before you! After working in various restaurants throughout Ireland I decided in 2019 to take the plunge and start this exciting new path in my career.
At Meet me at Phillies, we share the same ethos of these great places, bringing the freshest locally sourced ingredients to you, our customers.
It’s difficult to say at what point I discovered my interest for food and its preparation, but if I had to choose I would say that it was when I was younger and my parents got me to help out in the kitchen. Both my Mother and Father cook, the difference between them is that my Mother loves food and my Father loves preparing food.
In the summer before I went to college is when I received my crash course in feeding myself. My father taught me how to make easy and affordable meals. In that time I ate lots of stews, lasagnes and curries. By the time I was in college and living in Tralee, I wasn’t cooking for myself too often despite all of the coaching. The “college lifestyle” didn’t leave much time and energy for homemade dinners. I was also in a band at the time and I’m still in it now. It took some time before I became comfortable with cooking, but I found that the preparation process was quite therapeutic and it quickly became my favourite part of the cooking process.
Fast forward roughly 4 years, I had graduated college and moved to a new apartment. After college I was still gigging with the band and we were busy on the weekends, but now my weekdays where free which was great for a time. Eventually I wanted to do something that would teach me a new skill and I would enjoy doing. I found a course with the Kerry ETB for Food Preparation and Culinary Arts. The course lasted for 20 weeks. It was here where I refined my cooking skills and learned the little things that make all the difference when preparing food.
I first met Shane when I went to do work placement for my culinary course, he was the Head Chef and I started as a Commis Chef. I admired Shane’s outlook and approach to food, he taught me a lot in the short time that I worked for him. We have lots of common interests, food being one of them, as a result we became friends. One day Shane approached me with an idea that became “Meet me at Phillies” and all I could say was "let’s do it".
