Hello there! My name is Oonagh Monahan and I just love food! Anything to do with cooking, eating, talking about, looking at, watching, learning, producers, markets, you name it, food makes me happy. And to balance this, I walk the roads of Leitrim with my border collie, Rex, to work off the calories. Its not easy….but someone has to do it! Holidays, travel and day to day generally have food as a central consideration. Questions such as: where is there to eat around here?….what’s recommended?….where did it come from? …answers to these questions may not excite others, but for me, they’re essential. What’s more, my work is all food all the time as I’m fortunate to work with some of the great producers and chefs in the country helping them to develop, improve and promote their products from concept to commercialisation.
Eat up! and let me know if there is anything you would like me to write about or what you think.
