Gavin Lambe Murphy
Gavin Lambe Murphy is the original party boy at heart.
He is a regular fixture on the Dublin Social scene, on which he reports for the Sunday Independent.
He has also featured as a model on a number of photo shoots over the years and enjoys the opportunity to strut his stuff on the catwalk, when it arises.
Gavin is no stranger to television, having appeared on shows such as Young, Posh and Loaded on ITV and Celebrity Farm on RTE 1.
Gavin likes to party, entertain, and be entertained and he loves eating out.
He ranks Shanahan's on St, Stephen's Green in Dublin as one of his favourite restaurants.
When dining out he tends to avoid sweet desserts and settle for a cheese board, a habit which is reflected in his decision to serve a selection of cheeses in The Restaurant.
Gavin reckons his worst attribute is that he talks too much and that his nightmare would be to be stuck in a lift with himself.
Aside from that he describes himself as sociable and easy to get on with.
Will Gavin's menu get the party started for our diners - or will Gavin need to use all his charm reserves in pursuit of a 5 star rating?
