On two occasions, the Irish Times recently asked Birgitta questions about herself, her business and asked for her recommendations of local places in Clare. The fact that the renowned Irish newspaper approached Birgitta twice is highlighting the ever growing profile of Birgitta in the food world!
The first Questions & Answers session was published on 9 June 2012 under the title "True Characters". The Irish Times is asking quite a few personal questions, for example about how Birgitta came to live in Ireland, and what her earliest food memories are.
In the article of 10 July, 2012, Birgitta was asked for her opinion on local places - where to eat and stay, the best beaches and food to be got, and about the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival that takes place every September.
