Tom Doorley introduces us to his life and loves. Passionate about food, wine and gardening, Tom interweaves stories of his childhood, adolescence and distinguished career as food and wine writer. A celebrated food and wine critic, a restaurant reviewer and latterly a radio and television presenter, Tom looks back over a career filled with earth(l)y delights and consuming passions, reliving the funny incidents and culinary disasters, while also uncorking hard-learned wisdom on the growing and consuming of food, on gardening and environmental matters, on wine and on a variety of other topics close to his heart.
Once a teacher in St Columba's, and then a freelance journalist and TV celebrity food critic, TOM DOORLEY now writes a popular restaurant column for The Irish Times. He also hosts a Saturday evening programme on RTE Radio 1 called `Food Talk'. This is his first book.
