Chef Stuart O’Keeffe has been recognized internationally since the 2011 debut of Stuart’s Kitchen (airing in Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand), and as a weekly food contributor for Dublin’s Evening Herald newspaper. Since moving to Los Angeles Stuart has appeared as co-star on two seasons of Food Network’s Private Chefs of Beverly Hills and has become a featured chef on Oprah Winfrey Network’s Home Made Simple.
Stuart currently hosts Kitchen Daily 101 on AOL, can be found cooking with Felicity Huffman on her website WhatTheFlicka.com, and recently appeared in the prime time NBC program Food Fighters. He is also a regular culinary contributor to WhatTheFlicka.com and IrishCentral.com.
Stuart’s overall philosophy is simplicity: Fewer ingredients afford higher quality. Taking smart shortcuts, like pairing key store-bought items with homemade ingredients, saves money. Quick, easy-to-follow recipes result in great-tasting dishes that are sure to wow. And, marrying the old world goodness of Ireland with the abundant fresh offerings of California makes an unbeatable combination. His cookbook The Quick Six Fix (Harper Collins), based on this philosophy, is out now.
