  • Eat well, Live Well, Be Well

    Our father used to love the catchphrases “Eat Well, Live Well” and “You are what you Eat”.

    We often see Hippocrates quote “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food’ but what guidance do we take from these pearls of wisdom? My understanding of these phrases is that our diet can be either very healing or it can kill us too early - and unfortunately too many of us eat the cheapest, most convenient ‘food’ we see rather than paying attention to what our body actually needs. We are overwhelmed by confusing advertising, tempted by easily available treats and unhealthy snacks, and the result is that many people in Western ‘developed’ nations are getting sicker and sicker.

    Laura joined us in February of this year, having graduated from college a few months before with a BSc Nutritional Sciences degree, so as you can imagine, she is a great asset to our team. She says…

    I’ve always loved baking from a young age (I’ve a serious sweet tooth!) but while I was studying in college, I realised what I was making wasn’t exactly the best for my health so I started experimenting with recipes and discovered a whole different way of baking. I began sharing my creations online and after a while built up the courage to create my own blog called ‘Tee’s Nutrition’ so I could share with others my passion for discovering nutritious recipes and food. The blog’s grown to Facebook and Instagram as well and everyone’s been really supportive. Continue reading

    Family values, a culture of collaboration, respect and sense of community are the common denominators in these five westCork kitchens run by remarkable women chefs in Bantry,Skibbereen and Baltimore.

Ground-to-ceiling windows, reclaimed industrial fittings, high walls filled with work by local artists, comfy sofas and loads of child friendly space keep faithful clientele happy.
