From idea to execution its been 2 solid years of work. In between representing her country at the highest level (and winning a nice collection of medals for her efforts), completing a full time course in cookery school and pitching the idea to publishers hoping they would appreciate her love for cooking and her vision to give people a healthier, tastier way to live and eat, her moment has finally arrived. My bestfriend Derval O’Rourke has written a cook book, and as I type it has gone to print and will be ready to hit the shelves in Ireland, September 5th.  I couldn’t be more excited, proud and impressed by all of her hard work, and to see it finally come together in print, is amazing. I’ve been lucky enough to get a little sneaky peaky at what will be the finished product, only because I shot a bunch of the photos that will appear in the book (cheeky self brag) and it really is amazing. Along with all of the the food and recipes, the book also ties in lots of elements from Derval’s life as a professional athlete. But if you ask me, the real reason you should check out this book of yumminess, is Keane. Yep, my little fella’s cheeky face is in there. While Derval was visiting us last year, she tested out a bunch of recipes she was thinking of including in the book. Keane became our little taste tester and I captured his reactions to each of the recipes. The recipe that got the biggest smile, made it into the book, and so did the photo of him eating it. We will actually be in Ireland when the book is released, so with blue crayon in hand (his favorite colour) Keane will obviously be accompanying Derval to her book signings, ready to autograph each book with the only letter he knows how to write, “K”.

If all that’s not enough to get you curious and excited, then click on the photo below to check out the promotional video released by the publishers last week.
