Hi, I am Katia and I arrived in Dublin from Paris in 1998 on the tail end of the Grunge wave. I have never looked back. I’m as passionate about my cooking as a passionate French woman can be, which is to say a lot. I write because I cook and I cook because I love. If I feed you it’s because I love you. But beware: if I love you I WILL feed you.
On this blog you will find recipes from Ireland, France and beyond. The emphasis is on simple, well made food. I am happiest cooking with seasonal and local ingredients.
Ireland is in the midst of a fantastic food movement and I am very excited to introduce you to some of our wonderful products and small producers. However, you can take the woman out of France but you can’t take France out of the woman, which means I will be sneaking some random and wonderful French tidbits for you to try.
Thanks to this blog I have stretched and expanded my cooking skills, learned to take a decent photo but most importantly I have made friends for life whom I’d have have very likely never met otherwise. Some might say it’s one of the best things I ever made happen.
I am one of the admins for the Irish Bloggers Group on Facebook created the Irish Food Bloggers Group so if you’re not in yet come and join the party. If you’re not a blogger but love food inspiration from around the world, do come join this group , it’s fun and informative. I am on the judging panel for the Irish Quality Food Awards and I was a guest speaker at the latest Blogger Conference. So to cut a long story short, I pride myself in my involvement in the Irish blogging and social media community.
So don’t be shy, if you have any questions, suggestions or recommendations or if I can help in any way, come say hi. Finally if you have made any of my recipes, please let me know, it’s the highest compliment in my land.
