Meet The Authors: Sophie Morris


11-10-2012 11:45

You know Sophie as a foodie entrepreneur and author of one of the most delicious cookbooks of the year. But what’s her greatest regret? And where was she happiest? Find out here, as she answers the Dear Reader Questionnaire...

 

What is your earliest memory?
Playing in my Granny and Grandpa’s house in Clifden in Connemara, we used to spend hours rolling down the little hill in front of their house!

 

What was the last book you read?
Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink.

 

When and where you were happiest?
In my uncle’s house on a game reserve in South Africa. There’s no electricity and you’re surrounded by all the animals in the wild, it’s the most peaceful and incredible place I’ve ever been.

 

What is your favourite word?
Positivity.

 

What is your favourite thing about your job?
That I never know what’s going to happen next! It’s like a rollercoaster of mystery and excitement.

 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
As hard and scary as it can be running your own business it means that you will always be in control of your own destiny. That is something I find amazing and I always remind myself of it when I’m finding it tough.

 

What do you regret?
Not going to South Africa over the last 3 years because of being too busy with Kooky Dough and so not seeing my Granny one last time before she passed away.

 

Where would you most like to live?
The West of Ireland.

 

What’s the best present you’ve ever received?
My Kenwood mixer with all the attachments, I couldn’t live without it now!

 

How would you like to be remembered?
Smiling.
