Le Skinny Chef

Le Skinny Chef, Aymar Gourdet, is a multi- award-winning chef and restaurateur who specialises in French Irish Fusion Cuisine. From an early age Aymar was interested in cooking and he opened his first Gastronomic Restaurant in Ireland over 20 years ago. His current business evolved from queries received from restaurant customers asking to take home jars of his Spreadable Wild Garlic Pesto. Le Skinny Chef comprises a range of award winning artisan products which Aymar creates from locally sourced organic ingredients, many of which are both dairy and gluten free.

He produces a wide range of artisan food products and prides himself on using locally sourced dips, spreadable pestos, concentrated soups, chutneys, jams, oils and cordials. Aymar states “The ingredients we carefully choose and use in our creations have a direct impact on our success” Le Skinny Chef was a recipient of a Great Taste Award in 2016. Le Skinny Chef products are currently available to buy directly from the factory shop in Portlaoise, from the Food Academy section in selected SuperValu stores, independent stores acrossIreland and at Farmers Markets in Kilkenny, Naas & Emo Co.
