Chef Gearóid Lynch and his wife Tara are the proprietors of the award-winning fine-dining restaurant and guesthouse, The Olde Post Inn in Cloverhill, Co Cavan.
A Fáilte Ireland Food Champion, Gearóid’s love and appreciation of home-grown produce was fostered at a young age on his family farm. He gained his professional experience at Thornton’s and Le Coq Hardi in Dublin, as well as the Michelin-starred Pied à Terre in London, and Lea Linster, Luxembourg. In 2000 Gearóid won the Euro Toques Young Chef of the Year.
Diagnosed with coeliac disease in 2013, Gearóid learned everything he could about his condition and re-imagined all the meals denied him; Yorkshire puddings, fish and chips, pasta and pastries, adapted for a gluten-free lifestyle but with no compromise on taste. Gearóid has now shared his experience in his new cookbook, ‘My Gluten-Free Kitchen’.
