Chef Jess Murphy Of Kai, Ireland’s Only
Michelin Green Star Restaurant

Today’s guest is Chef Jess Murphy. Originally from New Zealand, Jess moved to Ireland and in 2011 opened the doors to Kai, the award-winning restaurant she runs with her husband, Dave Murphy. Because of the sustainability programs at Kai, it’s the only restaurant in Ireland to have been awarded the Michelin Green Star. Jess is also passionate about helping refugees in Ireland record their food stories, and she has been recognized for the work she does with the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Jess was in New York last week because she was this year’s featured chef at the annual Kerrygold St. Patrick’s Day luncheon. She made a beautiful meal with seasonal produce, and of course, lots of butter and cheese.
