Sophie Morris

Sophie Morris is owner of the innovative and exciting young Irish food company Kooky Dough. 


Started in her kitchen and initially sold at farmers’ markets in Dublin, she and 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, the UK, France and the United Arab Emirates. They received recognition for the quality of their product in 2010 by winning a bronze in the Blas na hÉireann food awards in Ireland which was followed by a Gold Star in the UK’s Great Taste Awards in 2011.

 

Having an MSc 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 she 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 twelve-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 feel-good food is what Sophie loves to do in her precious free time. It helps her relax and escape from work and she hopes her book will help you to do the same.
