Hi everyone, I am so happy that I can finally share this news with you so here it goes: in exactly 7 days, I’ll be moving to Cork, Ireland! Does that mean I’m going to stop blogging? Absolutely not. There will be some changes, but they’re all good!
What exactly will change then? Well, now that I’m finally going to live in the country I love so much, I’ll be expanding my blog just a little bit. Although I have been to Ireland quite a lot of times in the past few years, there is still a lot more for me to discover, especially when it comes to food. So after I’ve settled in, I’ll be visiting and blogging about local farms, fish- and cheesemongers, trying out new ingredients and brands, but also checking out restaurants and shops. Basically, Tine at Home now means at home in Ireland and in my kitchen. Apart from exploring what Ireland has to offer for foodies, I’ll also occasionally write about places to visit and things to see or about events in Ireland, regardless of food.
Although I won’t be able to cook my own food for a whole month, which is going to be quite the torture for me, I have been cooking non stop the past week to make sure I have enough recipes saved up to share with you all over the next few weeks, while I look for a place to live and have all my cooking stuff shipped to Ireland. I’m going to try and keep posting at least 1 new recipe every week, to make sure my blog can stay up and running while I get started on this new adventure!
I hope that I can inspire a lot of people to plan a visit to Ireland, and that I can show you that Ireland stands for a lot more than bad weather, because it really is an absolutely beautiful country with great beaches, breathtaking views, peaceful countrysides, rocky mountains and vibrant cities crawling with the friendliest Irish people who are always up for some good banter and craic. For those who already live there (hello new fellow citizens!), feel free to recommend me some places I should visit or products to try, and if you are a local farmer, artisan baker, fisher, cheesemonger, .. let me know where I can find you so I can pay a visit!
I’ve also created two groups on Facebook for both bloggers and food lovers in Ireland:
– Foodies in Ireland: Are you an Irish foodie or a foodie living in Ireland? Join this group and share your own recipes, favorite recipes by others or simply get inspired by the others. You don’t have to be a food blogger to join!
– Bloggers in Ireland:A group where Irish bloggers or bloggers in Ireland can share their new blogposts and promote their pages
I can’t wait to take you all on my new journey as a foodie living the dream in Ireland!
Have a lovely day,
