Aoife Carrigy | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe

Aoife Carrigy is a freelance food, wine and travel writer based in Dublin, Ireland.

Having spent many happy years working front-of-house in restaurants – combined with dallies in book publishing, stints of teaching English and journalism, posts as restaurant reviewer for various free-sheets, and adventures in travel including a job as a cook on a 4WD tour of Australia’s north-west outback – I was lucky enough to work full-time as Deputy Editor of Ireland’s FOOD&WINE Magazine for five years. During that time I came into contact with some amazing artisan food producers, restaurateurs, chefs, front-of-house people, deli and cafe owners, market stallholders, wine suppliers and stockists, farmers, butchers, bakers, cookery school teachers, hoteliers, B&B and guesthouse owners and many others doing great work around the country.
