I’m Órfhlaith. (Pronounced Orla. I know my name looks scary but it’s just Irish!) Sometimes people call me Ethel but that story is not really relevant here.

I’m 27 and I live in Ireland. Usually in Dublin but I recently quit my teaching job to move to Cork for three months to attend the Ballymaloe Cookery School. I will be posting as much as possible throughout the course to tell you about what I learn, cook and eat. If you like food and pictures of greenery check back in!

    I found you! I will follow right along and let you inspire me. Just putting the first things in the garden here. I won’t post photos as they would PALE next to yours. Lost of love and good wishes for a wonderful course, Auntie Karen

    Love reading you blog. I do not plant anything at all myself, but admire people that do, and like to purchase veggies from farm stands. Your classes sound good very interesting, and I can not wait for you to ok for me.
