Celebrity chef, television personality, and cookbook author
Stuart O’Keeffe is an accomplished professional chef known for his healthy yet hearty meals. He first explored his passion for food while cooking alongside his mother in his native Ireland; he then honed that passion into skill at the Dublin Institute of Technology where he earned a degree in culinary arts. Chef Stuart has been trained around the world, cutting his teeth in Napa Valley and Bordeaux, France — both highly competitive culinary hot spots — before moving to Los Angeles. There, he works with some of the biggest names in Hollywood and has been seen on the NBC prime-time series Food Fighters and OWN’s Home Made Simple. He has also starred in The Home Channel’s Stuart’s Kitchen, shot and produced in Ireland. A Food Network darling, Chef Stuart has served as a judge on Chopped, starred in Private Chefs of Beverly Hills, and been featured on hit shows like Valerie’s Home Cooking. He can currently be seen co-hosting his new show Let’s Eat! on the network. Chef Stuart released his first cookbook in 2016. Titled The Quick Six Fix, it’s all about making delicious dishes with minimal effort. Written for both home cooks and professionals, the simple premise of six fresh ingredients, easy prep, and quick cleanup got the attention of the Today show and The Rachael Ray Show, where he can be seen teaching guests how to prepare the meals featured in his book. The release of The Quick Six Fix also kicked off a series of regular appearances on shows, including CBS’ The Talk, NBC’s Harry, and The Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family. He is often called on during television appearances to prepare dishes that showcase his Irish roots, and his ability to develop and execute impressive, flavor-driven recipes that can be prepared quickly causes a stir with his social media followers and puts him in high demand with food festivals and magazines across the country. O’Keeffe, alongside his Westies, Jack and Bo, makes California his home. He spends his down time playing tennis and cooking with close friends.
