I’m an Irish journalist living in north London. As well as editing The Gannet, I write regularly for The Observer and its Food Monthly magazine. As a child I was a really picky eater but over the years I’ve become greedily curious about all kinds of food. One turning point was ordering a plate of snails in France aged 11; another was a summer of indulgence in New York nine years later. My fall-back dish is a very simple pasta with tomato sauce. I have a phobia of boiled eggs but I’m working on it. The Gannet is a natural conduit for my shameless nosiness about other people’s eating habits.
I’m a filmmaker and producer based in London, by way of Ireland and South Africa. Alongside The Gannet, I’m a co-founder of London video agency Blueprint. Since childhood I’ve been interested how cultures around the world relate to food. Eating sushi for the first time, aged 12, basically changed my life. Other revelatory moments include eating smoked brisket in Texas, tacos in Mexico, truffles on risotto in northern Italy and a goat stew under a tree in Tanzania. Don’t talk to me about bananas though.
I’m an Irish photographer and filmmaker based in London and a self proclaimed master of the 10-minute meal. In addition to The Gannet I direct music videos and commercials. I eat everything apart from prunes.
