There’s not much time left to get the barbecue out, so if it hasn’t made an appearance by August, I make sure to bring it out then, even if it’s not that warm. And let’s face it, we can’t be too picky in Ireland when it comes to weather! Barbecues are a great excuse to get some friends around at the weekend, and to pick at lots of delicious marinated meats and summer salads all day long while chatting well into the night...’ Sophie!

  • Crunchy BLT Salad,
  • Italian Tomato and Bread Salad,

Author

Sophie Morris is an energetic 28 year old and owner of the innovative and exciting young Irish food company Kooky Dough. Started in her kitchen and initially selling at farmers’ markets in Dublin, Sophie and her business partner, Graham Clarke, famously turned down the dragons on RTÉ’s ‘Dragons’ Den’ to build their food business their own way. Kooky Dough is now stocked in supermarkets and premium independent retailers in Ireland; in Waitrose in the UK; in Monoprix in France; and in Spinneys in the United Arab Emirates. Kooky Dough and Sophie have received extensive recognition for the quality of their product by winning numerous Blas na hÉireann food awards in Ireland, and Gold in the UK’s Great Taste Awards 2011.

 

With an MSc distinction in Economics along with a degree in Economics and Social Studies from Trinity College Dublin, Sophie enjoyed the challenge of academia and was always drawn to business oriented subjects. However, away from the lecture halls Sophie developed an intense passion for food, not only in the eating but in the therapy of preparing and cooking. She completed an Italian cookery course in Rome in 2007, and after university she completed the 12-week Ballymaloe cookery course to develop her culinary skills further. Her experiences at Ballymaloe only heightened her love for food and it was here that she developed the ambition to have her own food business.

 

Cooking simple, feel-good food is what Sophie loves to do in her precious free time; it helps her to relax and escape from work. She hopes this book will help you to do the same!
