We like to understand all the food in our recipes, to know what fuel, we are putting into our bodies, and what effect it can have on us. We’ve been so spoilt ( and spoiled !) with the choices of foods on this planet – from the natural to the wholly manufactured or processed. We prefer natural and unprocessed personally, and like to cook everything from scratch… as much as we can.
Aoibheann loves the raw, and the real food, the herbs and spices. Paul loves the rich and fine.
Put us together and we love the rustic, flavoursome, local, and the sophisticated fusion food, from texture to colour to flavour.
