the food choices that help us… eat well, cook better, live more
Let’s start at the very beginning ( with great ingredients ). This section is about the ingredients we love to use, and the ones we are curious about, in good ways or bad ! We’ll de-mystify them, one ingredient at a time.
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.
So, let’s start with some favourite ingredients, and those that interest us as we make our own journey. We’ll keep updating the posts as we gather more information for you. If you want to share or correct some information too, please use the comments fields at the bottom of each post.

The Cayenne Pepper – for some it’s hot, others it’s not ! Why we love it, and how we use it ? What’s in it and how can it affect our bodies !
