Making everyday in the kitchen exceptional, Catherine believes recipes should be both doable and delicious!

Passionate about the ingredients she uses Catherine’s motto is “eat well be well” and her ethos is “farm to fork” wherever possible.  This is strongly reflected through her many facets of work as an expert food ambassador, educator and cookery teacher, food writer and TV chef.

Catherine knows how good food brings family and friends together and in her collection of cookbooks she promotes this. Her style of cooking is modern Irish with a twist, there is an emphasis on fresh quality ingredients for family and entertaining and her recipes are both delicious and do-able.

Catherine’s cookbook “Eat Like an Italian” won the prestigious Avonmore Cookbook of the Year 2012 and the follow year “The Weekend Chef’ was nominated for the same award. Her latest cookbook “Bake Like an Italian” has just won the Best Italian Cuisine Cookbook Ireland 2015 in the Gourmand Cookbook of the year awards.
