About the authors
Former housemates, met thanks to a fairly cheap and central college accommodation and bonded over beer, comic books, cartoons and grocery shops tours. We have a common passion for food technologies and innovation (and for a cat, see below), that here we want to share it the rest of you. We are open to every novelty and ready to try whichever food EXCEPT PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA.

I recently graduated in Food Marketing, at UCC. I developed through my studies a keen interest in food innovation and security, consumer research and sustainability.
While researching for my final project for my master in food marketing, a consumer research on attitudes and perception about entomophagy, using insects (!) as an alternative, sustainable ingredient in food consumption, I have matured a fascination toward novel foods, alternative consumption, sustainable development and circular economy, fields in which I want to expand my expertise.
