I am Grainne, from Ireland, mum to a
3 nearly 5 year old. I love food, cooking, shopping, finding new ingredients and most of all feeding people. I travel when I can and I think I was an Italian in a previous life. I love the smell of lemons and olive oil. I love the simplicity of Italian cooking often including these 2 amazing ingredients.
I’m into fitness (have a personal trainer husband) and for something different have just gone back to adult gymnastics class after almost 30 years.
I’m very interested in the link between what we eat and how we feel but I’m not all tofu and hairshirts – I like to bake but believe in sharing the love a.k.a. the baked goods. I don’t believe in the concept of cheat day as I don’t think that is a good way to have to think about food.
I work for a technology company and have just returned to work after an amazing year off – A sabbatical to indulge my love of cooking, have some fun with my daughter and have a bit more ‘me’ time. I did a 3 month full time cookery course at Dublin Cookery School, which was just amazing with an incredible array of top notch chefs and really passionate fun people at the school. Check it out if you have any interest in devoting some time to cooking. This blog is how I unwind, cooking is my meditation if you like, although its often late at night or mega early at the weekend when Im pot walloping around the kitchen.
I love comments and hope you will enjoy the recipes and thoughts I post.
