Derry Clarke has been Chef/Patron of the award-winning Michelin Star L’Ecrivain restaurant in Dublin for over 22 years.
He started his career in The Man Friday in Kinsale under Peter Barry in 1972 and moved to Dublin in 1977. He then spent four years in Le Coq Hardi and a further eight years in the Bon Appetit before opening his own restaurant in July 1989 with his wife Sallyanne.
Derry and L’Ecrivain have been awarded many accolades over the past 21 years, such as Best Restaurant and Best Chef Awards since 1999 and Restaurant of the Year 2011 (Georgina Campbell). L’Ecrivain’s Michelin Star was first awarded in 2003.
Derry completed his time as Commissioner General at Euro-Toques, but remains actively involved with Euro-Toques still. He promotes the use of organic food and non-genetically modified foods. Derry’s food ethos is simple: he uses the finest of fresh local produce.
