Shane Martin Haffey Executive Chef, Fairyhouse Hall
Chef Shane was raised on a sustainable heritage livestock and horse farm in Northern Ireland and grew up with an obsession for horses and good food; spendong all his free time steeplechase racing, hunting and eating his way across Europe. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of Charleston, he cut his culinary teeth in Nice, France, in a family owned bistro, where his love of butter, soups and sauces was enhanced. He has served as a demonstration chef for Le Creuset Cookware, and serves as a Board member of the Lexington Chapter of Slow Food USA.
  At his guest house and social club, Fairyhouse Hall, he creates dishes from his own garden and estate raised Angus, Berkshire Pork, Label Rouge Chicken, Guinea fowl, Muscovy Duck, and Bourbon Red Turkey; combining his love of French cuisine with Irish cookery.  Shane has developed his own oxymoronic style  of  “gourmet southern comfort food”  or  as he calls it, PPC “posh paddy cuisine.”
