Hi, welcome to Tea and Takes.

I created this blog as a way of bringing my two loves together: Food and Film although food is taking over slightly at the moment!

I love the idea in film that if you don’t get something right first time you keep trying until you’re happy with the end result. This definitely applies to life and especially with food! What I love about cooking is that you can make the same recipe more than once and more often than not it can taste slightly different each time. You can be as adventurous as you want and are forever learning.

Cooking and baking for me is something I do to relax. There’s nothing I like to do better than put my apron on, whack on some country tunes and get busy cooking in the kitchen – they’ll usually be some singing and dancing involved too!

Tea and Takes focuses mostly on healthy recipes, with the occasional treat (because life’s for living, right?). Also thrown in are reviews of the latest foodie places, films & events, plus some travel stories and adventures.

I have always been a huge lover of stories and storytelling and growing up with a large Irish family, we were never short of a story or two in our household. I believe food offers opportunities to share stories and make connections, which is so important in life and through Tea and Takes I aim to share those stories with you.

I hope you enjoy.
