John Relihan

KSG Culinary Operations Executive Chef

John Relihan describes himself as a ‘food geek’, but most would consider it pretty cool to count Jamie Oliver amongst your friends, make Drisheen with Harold McGee, work with Fergus Henderson at St. John, and head up one of the most ‘on-trend’ restaurants to recently open in Ireland, Holy Smoke in Cork city. John has an insatiable appetite for food exploration and an unquenchable enthusiasm for what he does.

John Relihan joined the KSG Culinary Team in 2018. He is a Failte Ireland Food Ambassador and former Head Chef of Barbecoa, London and Holy Smoke in Cork. He was a graduate of Jamie Oliver’s original Fifteen program in 2002 and he has also worked in New York and San Francisco.
