This piece was in the Mother's Day special edition of the Irish Independent Weekend Magazine, March 21st. To say I'm thrilled is an understatement, yay!
It's a funny sort of piece, as in it harks back to our "first" confession, first film etc. Of course I didn't remember my first words, given that I was probably thinking in colours and tastes at the time.
It's nice and validating to have a little something like this done. As a food writer, much of my payment comes in the form of a leg of lamb or a crate of wine, you don't get into this game for the money, but for the love of food.
