Originally from Nenagh, Co Tipperary, Chef Stuart O’Keeffe was a weekly food contributor for Dublin’s Evening Herald newspaper and has been recognized internationally since the 2011 debut of his own cooking show, Stuart’s Kitchen. Chef Stuart now resides in Los Angeles, where he co-starred on two seasons of Food Network’s Private Chefs of Beverly Hills. He currently hosts Kitchen Daily 101 on AOL, can be found cooking with Felicity Huffman on her WhatTheFlicka.com website, and will appear on the primetime U.S. program Food Fighters (premiering summer 2014). He is also a global spokesman for Asiana Airlines’ “Fly with Color” campaign.
Chef Stuart is under contract with Harlequin Publishing and is now writing a cookbook called The Quick Six Fix. The foundation of his new cookbook – and overall philosophy – is simplicity: Fewer ingredients afford higher quality. Taking smart shortcuts, like pairing key store-bought items with homemade ingredients, saves money. Quick, easy-to-follow recipes result in great-tasting dishes that are sure to wow. And, marrying the old world goodness of Ireland with the abundant fresh offerings of California makes an unbeatable combination.
