A Michelin star trained-chef originally from Ireland, Chef Declan’s career spans 27 years in some of the best kitchens on both sides of the Atlantic. While his repertoire includes cuisine from his home country (of course!), France, and the US, he spent many summers in Italy soaking up the culinary atmosphere and learning the techniques for creating authentic Italian dishes. A graduate of DIT School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology, he is dedicated to constantly expanding his vast knowledge of food. Chef D’s commanding presence in the kitchen make him the perfect ranch boss ready to serve up the best this — or any region — has to offer.
Chef Declan competed on Season 19 of Hell’s Kitchen, where he was a finalist, as well as on Guy’s Grocery Games, and has made numerous other Food Network appearances.
