Derry takes a bite out of smartphone users
Celebrity chef Derry Clarke has urged people to switch off their smartphones when dining out. Clarke claims he doesn't "allow" people to "snap before they eat" in the dining room of his Michelin-starred l'Ecrivain.
"Everyone's on their phones, I see it in restaurants - if you use it that way technology can end up controlling your life," he said.
The renowned chef was at IT Tallaght with fellow chefs Neven Maguire and Domini Kemp for the launch of the world's first Msc in Applied Culinary Nutrition. The three chefs will be patrons of the course. Photo: Andres Proveda
