Then in 2008, Kevin put his name to a new venture Raglan Road in downtown Disney, Orlando. The following year saw “GREAT FAMILY FOOD” hit the bookshops with hugely successful sales, 2010 then saw his third book, simply titled “RECIPES THAT WORK” get published again with wonderful sales in both Ireland and the UK.

 2011 was a very successful year for Kevin whose media profile soared with his role as resident chef of RTE’s hugely popular The Afternoon Show every week, the publication of FULL ON IRISH and the launch of his own App “FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD”. In addition to this, Kevin also regularly appears on TV in Florida and New York, US to promote the restaurant.

Though Kevin’s media profile continues to flourish, he still remains passionate about his role as a Chef and is Chef/Patron of an Irish Gastro Pub in Disneyland, Orlando called Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. A second gastro-pub has opened in Disney, California. Kevin is also the proud food ambassador for Ireland’s leading supermarket “SUPER VALU.

With all of this experience, they are delighted that Kevin is coming to Charleville Park Hotel on Thursday 18th October, to do a cookery Demo as a fundraiser for Croom Community Development.
