Kevin Kennedy Chef was chef-patron of Boulestin for 16 years until the restaurant closed in 1994. He and his wife Siew-Eng, known to many as Maggie and who also worked at Boulestin with her husband, left the UK some years ago to run a bed and breakfast and holiday homes business in the South of France.
He passed away on 30 June peacefully in hospital in Perpignan, France following a short illness.
Very sad to hear of the passing of Kevin Kennedy. A man who was truly one of the culinary world’s great characters. RIP. Love to Maggie and family, my thoughts are with you.
