Nessa Robins trained as a nurse in St. James’s Hospital before completing a Bachelor in Nursing Studies at Trinity College Dublin. She worked in many different areas of nursing until having her third child. Staying at home with her children gave her the opportunity to focus on food and she began to teach cookery classes from her kitchen.
Her passion for cooking and love of writing merged when she started her award-winning food blog, Nessa's Family Kitchen, in January 2010. Her first book “Apron Strings - Recipes from a Family Kitchen” was published in May 2013, by New Island Books. Nessa currently writes a food column for Easy Parenting and the Westmeath Independent. She is also an occasional guest writer with The Farmer’s Journal, Irish Country Living. Nessa lives with her husband and four children in Moate, Co. Westmeath.
