Cúán is an Irish chef and author of the Ómós Digest, an exploratory newsletter surrounding food and culture. He is an alum of restaurants Noma and Geranium in Copenhagen, and the former head chef of Bastible in Dublin.
Cúán’s belief is that more can be brought by working together through the process of communication, learning, and understanding other’s crafts and inspirations. Ómós is a traveling caravan of those ideas; collaborations of food and innovations; and investigations surrounding what we eat. The word comes from the Irish language, meaning homage, duty, and respect. Ómós is an idea that Cúán has been developing since he returned from a 4-year stint cooking in Copenhagen. Drawing on his experience at restaurant Noma, Cúán’s ambition is to develop the dining experience, widening the understanding that place, space, and community plays, in equal measure.
