Bread on the Table shows cooks at home how easy it is to whip up a batch of griddle cakes faster than it takes to drive to the shops, park and pay for a plastic loaf. This is a book for everyone; parents who want to put better bread in their kids' lunch-boxes, those who want to do things for themselves, save some money in the process and have some fun in the kitchen.
Val was born and lived in Limerick until her late teens when she studied art and graphic design in college. She began her career in media at the Limerick Post newspaper and had her first solo photography exhibition. She has enjoyed a varied career in media from a long stint in press photography in Dublin, to food blogging which led to press columns and a spot as a guest critic on RTEs Masterchef.
She responded to the economic downturn by returning to college and uses her new skills teaching classes in self-sufficiency. She has made short films on environmental issues and food which can be seen on the urbanfarmer channel on youtube.
