Corinna Hardgrave is a former Host of the UK and Ireland Forum at the eGullet Society . She writes the monthly restaurant column for Irish Tatler magazine, is editor of Eat Out, the annual restaurant guide for (Irish) Food & Wine magazine and contributes to the Irish Times magazine among other publications.
Before choosing a life of poverty as a freelancer, her more profitable hours were consumed by marketing and PR on both the client and agency side. Interesting projects have included compiling the cookery book to accompany RTE's Homes of Good Food TV series, staging Bizet's Carmen in the National Concert Hall and project managing the 1998 World Cup Sponsorship for a major food company in the UK.
She has travelled extensively and was editor of a business travellers' magazine during some of her time in the Middle East. Corinna's interest in cooking started at the age of three with a 'deconstructed' soda bread in her grandmother's farmhouse, and there have been a few notable improvements since. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her husband and two children.
