The internet is a wonderful place, full of the most incredible information, enthralling entertainment and copious cat videos.
But it can also be a little too vast at times, overwhelming in its scope and scale and bewildering in the number of Google search results you’ll get for any given topic.

Set up in 2012, FFID (for short) is the blog of a French lady called Ketty who has lived in Dublin since 2004. This award winning site is about Ketty’s local and not so local adventures in food and she’s recently started v-logging to give you a new way to interact. There’s also a monthly Foodie Movie Club – watch a movie, eat and chat!
Former Miss Ireland Rozanne Purcell set up this blog, all based on her long standing interest in healthy foods without extra additives or ingredients.

And she’s put that love to use by setting up The Little Green Spoon, a blog dedicated to delicious and healthy food of all sorts.
