Shane’s love and interest for food was evident from an early age, inspired by both his grandmothers and mother, who were avid bakers. The imagination, precision and skills required for this culinary niche immediately captivated him.
At the age of 16, he started his first job as a fresh faced commis chef and in time returned to college, graduating with a distinction in Specialised Pastry from GMIT, a leading institute of education for the hospitality industry in Ireland.
Over the years with his keen eye for detail and continued learning, Shane quickly progressed up the ranks and lead the pastry sections in some leading 5 star establishments in Ireland and abroad. During this time, he also picked up numerous awards in recognition of his original and fresh approach to patisserie & desserts, including “Best Bakery Manager” in Ireland.
All of these experiences have ultimately led Shane to launching his Online Cookery School in 2022. Shane believes that anyone who wants to learn to cook can and It’s the mission of his school to use his 23 years’ experience and knowledge to educate, teach and guide the next generation of pastry chefs and home bakers.
