Hello, you. My name is Aoife and i thunk i can has cook. Based on the tropical island of Ireland – in the metropolis of Dublin – I hope to keep this blog up as a record of the recipes that worked for me and the ones that didn’t.

Since 2009, it’s been my way of becoming a better cook and a more grammatically sound writer in one delicious gulp.

Unless where stated, all the food photos on the blog are taken by myself on my Canon EOS 500D. I haven’t had a hot meal since 2009.

Apart from I Can Has Cook? I:

  • work with my friend Mark Duggan on our recipe video series forkful
  • write a monthly column called Movie Bites for The Ticket in The Irish Times, where I share recipes inspired by classic films. Think Meatballs and The Godfather
  • write about food for the awesome Totally Dublin magazine
  • take photos for the GCN food column, Amuse Bouche
  • wrote the Naughty or Nice column for The Irish Independent’s Weekend magazine on Saturdays with my much nicer counterpart Aoife Barry from January 2011 to December 2012
