I make no secret of it – I LOVE FOOD!
My love of food covers a vast spectrum; from freshly baked bread served with buckets of butter and jam to Spaghetti Carbonara on to Haute Cuisine.
My love of bread started when I was a small child growing up in Ireland. My mother was one of 13!! Twice a week we would visit my grandparents. Their house was always brimming with family and at any given time there could be up to 20 people around the table. Granny’s food was all homemade, including bread, butter, cheeses and cakes. I was never happier than when I was served her home-made wheaten or soda bread, fresh from the oven, with butter and raspberry jam. Traditional Irish breads are the best, but very difficult to get hold of in the UK. If visiting Ireland you really must eat as much bread as possible – forget carb watching!
