A new workshop from "Slow at Work" author Aoife McElwain sounds like a glorious start to a Saturday. Simple Food for Fast Times will demonstrate easy, energising recipes, with the aim of creating more of a connection with food, and encouraging a slow down when it comes to cooking and eating. It will take place at Arran Street East, a handmade pottery workshop near Dublin's Capel Street, on the last Saturday of the month from February to July. It's aimed at beginner cooks, and those who feel they don't have time to cook.
Aoife McElwain is a food writer and creative events planner. She published Slow at Work after suffering burnout in 2015, and wanting to find a more sustainable way of working and living. She says that taking the time to prepare and enjoy food has been a big part of finding that balance.
Tickets for Simple Food for Fast Times cost €120 and include a light breakfast and lunch. The workshop takes place from 10am - 2pm. Here's a lovely video they've made about it.
