      You always did have good form on the beer side of things, Chris. Some good IPAs being made in Ireland at the moment. O’Hara’s double IPA is a thing of hoppy beauty, I’m hearing great things about Galway Bay Brewery’s Of Foam And Fury Double IPA and Eight Degrees has a punchy Zeus black IPA out at the moment as well.

  4. Congratulations to you both. Incredibly exciting times ahead. Best of luck!

      Looks like 2014 is going to be an exciting year for us both! Thanks Caitriona. Looking forward to seeing Wholesome on the shelves.

  5. Congratulations, Caroline! I look forward to drinking my way through it!

  6. Great news and great subject matter for a book, best of luck with it. Patrick Ryan of Bread Revolution is a friend he’s done a fantastic job with promotion he might be worth chatting with.

      Rob, I didn’t realise that you knew Patrick! I’ve been to his island bakery and regularly meet him at different food events – hoping to drag him along to this year’s Ballymaloe Litfest in May but he’s saying something about a significant birthday that weekend…
