Hey, I'm Lloyd.
I'm a 24 year old from Wicklow in Ireland with a love of Irish Food.
I ran my own soup business in Dublin for 6 months from September 2014- March 2015. I started out on this journey with the aim of learning something about myself and food business in Ireland. I learned more in this six months than I ever could have imagined. That journey came to an end when I lost a little bit of the spark that had been getting me out of bed in the mornings. I wanted another challenge and I moved on from the Soup game to focus on other ideas.
One idea that had been bouncing around my head from the beginning was that of profiling inspiring and great Irish food stories. It coincided with a college course I was doing at the time and I wanted to show how many important, successful stories there are at the moment in Irish food. We have such a rich history of brilliant food and I wanted to explore the stories that accompany some of these, and share them for you to read.
If I was able to show someone how rewarding and engaging a career in Irish food could be , I'd be a happy man . If this blog was to lead on to new opportunities; even better. For now though, I'm enjoying exploring stories that I find interesting and engaging with great and inspiring people from the world of Irish food.
Thank you for sharing in the journey with me , I hope you find some relevance within these pages.
Happy reading ,
