Name: Sean Smith

Age: 33

Restaurant: The Cliff Town House

Death Row Dinner: It has to be Oysters and Champagne – the more expensive the better. Then for dessert, I’d have chocolate Fondant. Anything with chocolate really.

Kitchen Disasters: Well, last week another chef I work with managed to slice the part between his thumb and index finger. I’d call that a disaster.

Ingredients of the Moment: Beetroot. It’s in season and it’s delicious. Also, oysters from Galway Bay.

Essential Kitchen Gadget: A Smoker. Or a Water Vat.

Secret Ingredients/Tips: Use loads of butter and salt. Mordon Salt.

Thank you Sean for my first experience of oysters and champagne.
