    New Zealand-born chef Jess Murphy has lived in Ireland since 2003, and has been based in Galway since 2005, where she opened her award-winning restaurant, Kai, with her Irish husband, Dave Murphy, in 2011. Kai is a place built on good energy, where happy staff and a busy kitchen combine to send everyone who visits out the door a little bit more content with the world. When Jess is not feeding or minding people, she is quietly fighting for an underdog somewhere here or abroad. She has been a formal High-Profile Supporter of the UNHCR since 2017, travelling to Lebanon and Syria with the UN Refugee Agency to spend time with Syrian refugees selected for resettlement in Ireland, cooking and sharing food with them, finding common ground and documenting some of the food heritage that risks being lost after years of war in Syria. Everything that Jess does has a vitality, immediacy and generosity based on friendship, relationships and respect.

    Jess is delighted to be attending the Samhain Festival this year with her new book "The United Nations Cookies", which is the Third of four books from the Blasta Book series. Jess will be joined by Kristin Jensen, publisher and editor of the Blasta Books. 
    Following the cookery demo, Jess will do a book signing, as her book will be available to purchase thanks to our partners at Antonia's Bookstore. 

    Price €5.00
