Star Anise was established in May 2002 by Virginie Sarrazin, originally from Lyon, France. Virginie was surrounded by good food from a very early age, with a chef for a father and a wine expert as a mother. In 1996, she moved to Cork after finishing a Catering Management Diploma. What she thought was only going to be a short visit ended up being a home from home.
