Fresh Revolution is made up of husband and wife team, Ronan Moynihan and Emily Stix-Moynihan.  Ronan began his kitchen career 15 years ago, washing pots at a seaside restaurant in West Cork, Ireland.  After obtaining his degree in culinary arts from the Cork Institute of Technology, he worked in multiple prestigious restaurants around Ireland, including the former Michelin Star awarded Park Hotel Kenmare. Since moving to Scotland, he has prepped alongside celebrity chefs  Mark Greenaway and Neil Forbes and as part of the team at Rollo. With a knack for creating intricate flavour profiles and simple dishes that pack a punch, Ronan takes inspiration from international dishes with a Scottish twist, using only the freshest and most local ingredients.

Hailing originally from Wisconsin, USA, Emily comes from a diverse background, once working for Congressman Patrick Kennedy in Washington, D.C., then finding her love for hospitality opening Top Chef Mike Isabella’s flagship restaurant, Graffiato, and, most recently, managing the award winning real ale pub, Stockbridge Tap, here in Edinburgh. Emily’s love of organic, locally grown food developed during her time working for Whipstone Farm in Arizona where she learned to cultivate vegetables, fruit and flowers and live off the land.

With Emily’s front of house experience, and Ronan’s talent in the kitchen, they make a well balanced team who are passionate about the food they produce – simple, yet intricately flavoured dishes influenced by their backgrounds and travels – and proving that a sustainably and locally sourced diet and lifestyle is possible, no matter where you may be.

Currently FreshRev has no permanent home, but instead follows wherever the food leads.  Find us at festivals and markets around Edinburgh, Scotland and beyond.
