Food & Cooking Podcasts >

Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Chef Brian Duffy had his first experiences in the kitchen as a young child with his big Irish-Italian Family. Those experiences introduced him to culinary life and led him to study at Philadelphia’s The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College. Culinary school may have taught him technique, but it was those Sunday nights cooking with his family where he developed his passion. After graduation, Chef Duffy worked under James Beard Award winning Chef Jean Marie LaCroix at The Four Seasons in Philadelphia. From there, he partnered in opening Kristopher’s, a BYOB concept that received widespread critical acclaim. It was through opening his own brick and mortar that Duffy began to realize his flair for refined, modernized pub fare and coined the term “New Celtic” cuisine. Duffy brought his “New Celtic” point of view to the Dave Magrogan Group as their Corporate Executive Chef for their brands. Following his successful tenure with DMG, Duffy joined forces with Seafood America as a consultant and Executive Chef, where he developed fresh and frozen products for grocery chains across the world. Duffy formed “Duffified Experience Group” in 2012, a consulting firm with the realization that most of the smaller restaurant & bar operators that are out there needed someone who spoke their language & worked the way that they do. Through this firm Duffy has been able to work & oversee restaurants, bars & nightclubs around the globe. The motto of “Redefining the economics of foodservice” has given Duffy & all of his clients a new lease on their business and their lives. On and off camera, Chef Duffy works with restaurants across the country updating their menus and coaching them through much needed facelifts. His proven success has made him one of the most in demand restaurant and hospitality consultants across North America and overseas Duffy is currently working on his new concept Flying Fish Crafthouse an 8000 square foot restaurant in the Historic Brewerytown section of Philadelp
