Simon Reagan,  Head Chef at the Panorama Restaurant in Killarney’s Five Star Europe Hotel, was a guest lecturer at the I.T. Tralee.

Simon has a wealth of experience in some of Ireland’s leading Hotels and Restaurants .

He brings with him a passion for food, and sources  only the best local ingredients.

In Simon’s own words :simon reagan dish

“Today, when we have an almost unlimited range of ingredients at our disposal and are open to so many culinary influences, it is essential that we as a kitchen team work with a real sense of balance and respect for cultural traditions, whilst at the same time using an open and imaginative frame of mind.

I believe it is essential to stay true to classic recipes and techniques as these can then be used as a platform for modern cuisine.

We try to make perfect, if there is such a thing and my philosophy is very simple, each day we strive to do better.

I believe a great dining experience is finding a perfect balance of excitement, refinement, professionalism and warmth.”
