Ballyliffin chef is World Chowder Champ 12.06.17

DONEGAL'S reputation as a good food destination received a massive boost at the weekend as Kieran ‘Duey’ Doherty won the World Chowder Cook-Off in Rhode Island.
Kieran qualified for the prestigious competition last year when he scooped the overall Irish title after winning the Donegal title.
However, his amazing victory in the US has been the pinnacle of success for the Inishowen cook.
“It is without a doubt one of the proudest moments of my life. We are ecstatic and I’m so grateful to all our fabulous family, staff, friends and customers for their terrific support.
We cannot wait to see everyone back at home for the celebrations," he said.
A delighted Kieran travelled to Newport, Rhode Island, last week with a full team while Eve Anne McCarron from Local Enterprise Office, Donegal, was also there to offer support.
The local chef, who runs Nancy's Barn, is a member of Donegal’s Food Coast Network and is in no doubt about its benefits.
“The Food Coast network is a great support for anyone working in a food related business in the county and it encourages businesses to collaborate and work towards a common goal of making Donegal famous for good food."
First plaice: Kieran 'Duey' Doherty flies the flag in Rhode Island after winning the world chowder title.
