Positively impact THE world through INCREDIBLE food, drink anD hospitality
Having grown up on a farm in the West of Ireland, I am proudly Irish to the core. I moved to London in September 2010 with a shiny first-class honours degree in Applied Languages and threw myself into the restaurant world, where I spent nine years running marketing programmes for the likes of Harvey Nichols and Searcys.
I launched Very Kerri in 2013. The brand’s initial focus was being a source of inspiration for dining out in London and entertaining at home through engaging content like interactive food maps, honest restaurant reviews and insightful blog posts. The hands-on side of food has always been key and I started hosting events in my home kitchen.
In 2017, I took a leap of faith leaving my comfortable corporate job and enrolled on the nine month Leith’s Diploma in Food and Wine. I have been fully sole trading since January 2019 which has seen me run the F&B experience at beautiful villas, cater seated dinners for two to 102, deliver bespoke cooking workshops, and film a cooking series for a new TV channel.
Over the years, Very Kerri has evolved into offering bespoke commercial and creative services, whilst adding value with recipes and kitchen hacks along the way. For the most unique events, my black book of outstanding cooks, savvy restaurant operators and in-the-know wine experts is bursting at the seams. I guarantee there’s always the best-in-class team on top of every project.
