The Kitchen Academy is a new cookery school located in the heart of the beautiful island town of Enniskillen, County Fermanagh. The school is just on the doorstep of the shopping area and minutes away from the Fermanagh Tourist Information Centre and the Enniskillen Castle Museums. There are numerous car parking facilities, public jetties within metres of the Academy and a taxi service can be arranged from any of the surrounding hotels.

The Kitchen Academy has been opened by Chef Joe Kelly who, although a native of Enniskillen, has spent most of his professional career running restaurants and bakeries across the USA. From sunny South Beach, Miami to America's culinary epicentre San Francisco, Joe has developed a world class reputation as a Chef focused on using only the freshest and seasonal ingredients in his recipes. "Growing up, training and working as a chef in the U.S. gave me a wide range of cultural influences regarding food, after all America is a cultural melting pot." Chef Joe comments. From learning the classic French techniques to helping to develop the New World cuisine in South Florida in the early 90's Joe went on to be Chef and manager for the world famous Boudin Sourdough Bakery Company in San Francisco. When the time came to return home Joe took up a residency at the renowned Belle Isle School of Cookery in County Fermanagh where he realised his love of teaching cookery. "I was amazed at the appetite for cooking that had developed in Ireland when I returned home in and when I started teaching at Belle Isle I was instantly hooked on passing on my skills to students." states Joe.
