A little about me: It’s fairly appropriate that with the name Carmel, I have a strong interest in food!
I grew up in San Francisco and spent my summers in Cork, two amazing food capitals. I found myself living on Bere Island, West Cork then Cork City then Dublin, and experimenting with recipes and taking of photos of food I have created, which is marrying my two passions–photography and food. After living in Ireland for the good part of three years, I am back in San Francisco.
I started baking and cooking as a way to relieve stress in high school, and found out pretty quickly I enjoyed being in the kitchen. In April 2014, I attended Ballymaloe Cookery School. Since then, I have been working in different kitchens–and under the supervision of world renown, top chefs such as Clodagh McKenna, Neven MaGuire, and Mara Martin (pinch me!)–across Ireland, London, and Italy, building on my education and building up my palate.
I have a little bit of everything on here, a reflection of my traveling, education, and growing up in a household of seven children. I hope I inspire you to get in the kitchen and get cookin’!
