By Garth McColgan.
Garth McColgan is “Mr FoodActive”. A trained chef (and Latin scholar!), his passion in life is to introduce young people to the wonders of cooking, the joys of eating and the wisdom of good food habits.
He developed the FoodActive concept more than a decade ago, and since then he has been teaching his unique course to students at Gonzaga College and St Conleth's College, both on Dublin’s southside.
He has trained under some of the world’s finest chefs, with a large chunk of his training taking place under TV chef Paul Rankin at Belfast’s legendary Roscoff Restaurant (which was the first restaurant in Northern Ireland to be awarded with a Michelin Star).
