About Me

Anti money laundering officer by day, I am a cook and a half by night. 

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.  I believe Ireland is one of the most underated food tourism destination and I feel it’s time we surprised the world. I play my part by actively promoting the local food effort. 

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 and I 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 have been on the judging panel for the Irish Quality Food Awards and I was a guest speaker at the  last two Blogger Conference. 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.
