Pamela Kavanagh joined The Heritage family in Killenard in October 2018 as the hotel’s Head Pastry Chef.
Pamela is the hotel’s home grown in house baker growing up on a farm in the heart of the Countryside of Mountrath, Co Laois .
Farming gave Pamela an appreciation early on in life of local produce and the benefits of using local ingredients.
This passion for food lead to Pamela taking up Studies in Professional Cookery at Irelands leading Catering College DIT, Cathal Brugha Street in the heart of Dublin’s capital.
Pamela has honed her experience at many top Hotels and Restaurants in Ireland such as Shanahans on the Green in the heart of Dublin’s Cosmopolitan area on St Stephens Green and has even worked along side such famous Celebrity Chefs as Gary Rhodes.
“We are delighted to have such a passionate individual as Pamela in our team, bringing with her a mix of leading culinary experiences and home grown talents,” said General Manager Ger Alley.
“We’re so proud of all of the local Laois suppliers that we use here at The Heritage.
“Having experienced Chefs like Pamela on board, who has grown up in Co Laois, surrounded by fresh, organic produce really instils what we are all about.
“Providing homegrown, local ingredients to all of our guests through our ever evolving offering is key for us to. We are so lucky to have a team member like Pamela on board who really understands the importance of farm to fork.”
The Heritage also uses Laois’s favourite jam by Helen Gee and team, G’s Jam to accompany all of their freshly baked scones and brown bread’s.
If you would like to treat yourself to some of Pamela’s fabulous freshly baked breads and scones then why not book in for Afternoon Tea at The Heritage.
Afternoon Tea takes place daily and can be booked at 1pm or 3pm for €32 per person.
