Hello, you. My name is Aoife and i thunk i can has cook. Based on the tropical island of Ireland – in the metropolis of Dublin – I hope to keep this blog up as a record of the recipes that worked for me and the ones that didn’t.

Since 2009, it’s been my way of becoming a better cook and a more grammatically sound writer in one delicious gulp.

Unless where stated, all the food photos on the blog are taken by myself on my Canon EOS 500D. I haven’t had a hot meal since 2009.

Apart from I Can Has Cook? I:

  • write a monthly column called Movie Bites for The Ticket in The Irish Times, where I share recipes inspired by classic films. Think Meatballs and The Godfather.

I listen to a lot of music while I cook. I share a tune via a link to The Hype Machine with each recipe, so that you can also enjoy what I listened to while I was cooking.

You can contact me for all food related gossip at aoifemcelwain [at] gmail [dot] com.

If you’re confused about the name I Can Has Cook?, here’s the picture that started it all off…

Lolcats. Lol.

And so…I hope you enjoy this blog.
