Celebrity Chef Stuart O’Keeffe stated: “I am so excited to be flying home to launch BAKE FEST 2014 in Lesiureland, Galway. As a Culinary Arts graduate of DIT majoring in pastry, I have had a love for baking throughout my career — from the rolling hills of Ireland, to the Hollywood Hills. I have a feeling this year will be the best yet at BAKE FEST. This is going to be the highlight of my trip coming back to Ireland!”
