The Kitchen is a local spot brimming wih creativity and buzz, serving amazing, taste-tingling grub and amazing coffee in the centre of Galway.
The Kitchen is the fourth child of Michelle (after Ava, Zak & Ruby), she was born in the UK raised in Ireland and has spent many a year wandering.
She has been a tour guide, journalist and teacher but always dreamt about a career in food. She wanted to make tasty, healthy, colourful food, with a sexy exotic twist. She wanted a place that felt welcoming nurturing and a space for the community to come together. She found that place in The Kitchen.
Where to begin? From the very beginning The Kitchen has always worked best as a collaborative business, I have found incredible staff (and sometimes they have found me!). We work as a team, bringing all our individual talents together. We respect and listen to each other and foster talent.... giving all employees room to find their mojo while adhering to our mantra of “Eat Well, Live Well”.
