Eat well   

Cook better… Live more.


Let’s start at the very beginning. In order to cook better, and live more, we need to eat great ingredients.

This section is about the ingredients we love to use, and the ones we are curious about, in good ways or bad !

 Our food choices


We need to understand all the food in our recipes, know everything we are putting into our bodies, and what effect it can have. But we’re so spoilt with the choices of foods on this planet – from the natural to the wholly manufactured or processed. We prefer natural and unprocessed personally.

Aoibheann loves the raw, and the real food, the herbs and spices. Paul loves the rich and fine. Put them together and we love the rustic, flavoursome, real, sophisticated fusion food from texture to colour to flavour.

So, let’s start with some favourite ingredients, and those that interest us as we make our own journey.

We have so much information to share so once we start an ingredient post, we will keep adding and updating it – so please refresh your page when you log in.

If you want to share or correct some information too, please use the comments fields at the bottom of each post.

It´s the ingredients blog !
