Nico Reynolds

Nico Reynolds is a Dublin native. From a young age Nico had a head in the cupboard and an eye over the shoulder of his Grandmother learning about the depth of flavour and the variety of spice in Caribbean cooking and soul food.


About Nico Reynolds

Bringing this knowledge to Latin American food he ran a catered event company and a small restaurant in Buenos Aires for 6 years.

Combining the depth of the flavours & aromas from the Caribbean with South American zests the menus began to take more influences from Peru, Colombia, Argentina and Mexico, and then became Caribbean cooking with Latin influences via Ireland!

Nico runs a pop up restaurant called Lil Portie which jumped into international recognition after the restaurant was featured on "F*ck That's Delicious with Action Bronson".
Since then he makes regular appearances on Irish TV in cooking segments on the "Today Show" and "Ireland AM", and was in house chef for "Lodging with Lucy".

"My Jamaican granny would bring informal bottles of scotch bonnet hot sauce by the litre to Dublin that I would in turn, bring back to South America and introduce into creative projects with chefs and cooks from around the world. This became the starting point for my recipes adding them to colourful South American palates. Finding different ways to use my Granny’s sauce for marinades, sauces, dips and bases became an obsession".

Culture is a force for unification. A shared history between us may not always be obvious on the surface but often the interpretations are from distant whispers that now become now ringing echoes. They are the bare elements of the human condition and the urges that every human must express; from the primal scream to the social gathering".
