first_imgFinn Ní Fhaoláin came to cooking from an unusual background. During her five years studying and working in Marine Science in Galway and Cork she realised her passion for food and fitness was taking over and she swapped the lab for the kitchen. She completed a Board Fáilte culinary arts programme in St Angela’s College Sligo, going out on her own as a private chef and cookbook writer.Longing for the west coast after a brief stint near Dublin, Finn has made Bundoran her home, where she loves to cook for friends, surf and go hiking in the surrounding mountains. Her first cookbook will be out April of next year with Gill Books (formerly Gill & McMillan). Finn’s says her style of cooking “focuses on putting the love back into food”. There’s no dieting, deprivation or restrictions.Diagnosed as a coeliac herself in 2009, she specialises in making gluten free food that is affordable, delicious and quick, so you can spend less time shopping and cooking and more time doing the things you love.Having lived in America, Spain and the Canaries much of her food is inspired by Mexican and Spanish cuisine – large dishes for everyone to share (paella and chimichanga) or smaller dishes for grazing (tapas). Always keen to champion local business she uses as much local produce as possible.After a busy summer of hosting BBQs and events for local businesses in Donegal and Sligo, Finn still has some availability for catering across the coming months in the run up to the Festive Season.Finn offers a range of catering options – from cooking and serving in house from your home or business or a fully packed buffet of hot and cold options for collection or delivery.She has varied menus to suit every budget and group number and is always open to exploring new ideas if you have something particular in mind.As a coeliac herself she is very conscious of dietary restrictions and always strives to ensure everyone has something delicious to enjoy!
