ABOUT THE CHEF
Steve Levine’s culinary career began at a young age in Saratoga Springs, New York. His first creations were delicious milkshakes and traditional sandwiches that he put together in his father’s luncheonette, Winnie’s.
Later Steve attended New York City’s oldest culinary program in Brooklyn, New York. During his studies he received an acclaimed James Beard scholarship. He launched his fine dining training with Jean George Vongerichten at “Jean-Georges” in 2005. He has also had the privilege of working for some of the city’s best chefs; among them were Mario Batali in Del Posto and Lupa Osteria, also Susur Lee at Shang. In 2009, he began running his own kitchen at Inoteca Ristorante, in the Lower East Side. This is where he began to forge close relationships with New York State Farms, an interest that prevails today.
Steve crossed the pond to Ireland two years ago to create a better balance between work and family life. Currently he works in Dublin at Beckett and Bull. He is inspired by all that Ireland offers a chef, though it is small, it’s regional harvests plentiful.
He is more then happy to help his father and mother in law celebrate ten years at Rosquil House. The Savour Kilkenny event was an ideal opportunity to celebrate their love of food and great hospitality.
