Carlingford chef mixing with world famous cooks

Nino and BBC cook James Martin

Carlingford native, Nino Giovanni Mac Mahon, a Chef/Lecturer in “Newry Catering College” at the Southern Regional College for 15 years has transferred his award winning skills to the High Seas on the P&O Britannia cruise ship.

Chef Nino Mac Mahon is now the Head of the Britannia Cookery School, working and teaching with household named Chefs like Marco Pierre White “the first celebrity Chef”, and James Martin of “BBC Saturday Kitchen”.

A competitor and judge at numerous Salon Culinaire events throughout Ireland and the UK, with an Italian heritage and a devout passion for cooking, Nino felt a need to take his skills to a wider international experience.

The cookery school on the cruise ship has now become a huge success and guests on board clamoring to get enrolled on his classes, with Nino saying “I have a deep passion for all things food related and get tremendous job satisfaction passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm to student’s whether in college or in the middle of the ocean.”
