NYC Book Tour; Feb 2017


Food52 live event

Catch me on Food52’s live Facebook feed, on Monday Feb 13th at 4pm EST (that’s 9pm Irish time). This is a foodie mecca for New Yorkers, with one of Instagram’s biggest hashtag trends #f52grams .

I’ll be showing you how to make a special Valentine’s treat that costs less than a fiver, and takes less than 5 minutes. Yahtzee!

Here’s the link.

You can send me real-time comments and questions – I’ll get them live on air and give you an almighty large shout out (especially if you’re tuning in from Ireland!)



Book launch

Then I’m launching the US edition of The Virtuous Tart at Rizzoli, America’s most beautiful bookstore, Monday Feb 13th (6pm-7pm).

Hunga bunga.

Here’s a map.

I would love to meet you all, and lovebomb you with superfood chocolate caramels. (Beats Botox. You’ll soon find out why).

I’ll be signing books and hanging with super-cool author Hetty McKinnon of Arthur Street Kitchen. There won’t be a kale chip in sight. I promise.




Refinery29 live event

Tune into Refinery29’s live Facebook feed to catch me prepping a recipe from The Virtuous Tart. I’ll also be chatting to Refinery29 about aphrodisiacs that make your heart go giddyup and your blood beat like a bodhrán.

Wednesday Feb 15th, @1:30pm EST (6:30pm Irish time).

Refinery29 is filled with fresh and fabulous women, expressively inclusive of all colour, size and ethnicity. Theirs is a site that celebrates diversity among women. We like.



Any recommendations while I’m in NYC my friends?

And do you have any pals in NYC who would dig some superfood chocolates and bad Irish jokes of a Monday evening? Do tell!

90-second Cookbook Trailer

When I’m not tarting around, or talking about my ghee, I’m praising the life of Honuts. (The Healthy Donut).

Maybe I should have called it The Wholefood Whore?

Out now, in American bookstores.




Calling all beloved New Yorkers, see you in Rizzoli Bookstore @6pm, Feb 13th? I’m plotting to lure you into bookstore signings with indecent amounts of raw chocolates and aphrodisiacs.

Tart Takes Wings!

The Virtuous Tart is being released in America and Canada next week. Yep, I am now exporting my potty mouth and my irresponsible relationship with cacao.

For all my friends across the Atlantic, you can grab it right here for pre-order price. Yahtzee!

I want to thank some of my greatest food heroes in the US and Canada, who are helping me mouth off about my cookbook (see below, for their beautiful comments). They have made this Irish lass dizzy with giddiness and gratitude.

And I want to thank YOU. Yes, you, without whom none of these crazy-assed recipes could transpire. You give wings to my words. I dedicate this book to you.
