My name is Arden Stringer and I’ve created this virtual space to share my passions for food, photography, and a celebratory way of living. For the last two years, I’ve been living in Boston, interning at a city magazine, and working towards a masters in publishing and writing from Emerson College. Since graduating in May, I’ve decided to enroll in a 12-week culinary certificate program at Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland so that my technical skill in cooking can catch up with my enthusiasm for it, and hopefully I’ll become a better food writer along the way.

I will be living in Ireland for four months beginning in September on a 100-acre organic farm where I will learn everything from how to become a speed chopper, the secrets to the perfect Irish soda bread, and tricks to planning a large menu, to the ins and outs (literally) of making paté, and the basics of Mexican food — have I mentioned I’m from Texas? That should be an interesting day.

This is the opportunity of a lifetime that I’ll be sharing with my mom, the Stringer matriarch who’s always taught us that there isn’t anything better in life than sitting around a table of loved ones, enjoying a beautifully prepared meal.

Visit my Recipes page to see the dishes I’m going to be making while I’m there, and my Journals page to hear some stories throughout the journey!
