Ann Hamill (Annie to her friends) in 1968 joined the Cathal Brugha College of Catering Dublin and completed a two year Cooks Diploma Course. Her hobby and passion is in food. She has appeared in two cookery programmes with RTE. She was a finalist in the first production of HEAT a very successful Cookery Competition presented by Kevin Dundon and Kevin Thornton. She also showed off her skills in making potato cakes from her local Ballinagore Record potatoes in the programme Fresh from the Farmers Market presented by Clodagh Mc Kenna.
On a cookery course in Italy in 2003 the seeds were sown for a small cookery school which she helps to run with her amazing Italian friends the Giardoni Family at their Agriturismo in the Mountains overlooking Bologna. Everything she had loved about her Cathal Brugha training came flooding back and the cooking bug had hit again. She spends time in her beloved Italy as often as she can.
Meet Paul Callaghan (Aka Calso Cooks) originally from Co. Armagh in Northern Ireland now residing in the beautiful Co. Clare in the west of Ireland.

Maryanne Dalton hails from Killiney and has been a foodie for as long as she remembers. She grew up in a large family where meals were the centre of her family life and cooking has been a life-long passion.
In 2013 she was encouraged to enter, and was a finalist on the Great Irish Bake Off. At the moment Maryanne juggles food writing, cake decorating and lecturing and teaching Chemistry in Maynooth University. While she describes herself as more of a "cook" than a "baker" she is first and foremost a teacher. Having met and chatted with many Bake-Off watchers in the supermarket baking isle, Maryanne realised that baking is an area where people need a little more advice, explanation and encouragement to get themselves confident enough to make a go of it.
