Ken On Food is an Irish food blog publishing articles and podcasts on food in Ireland. Life started as Any Given Food in Kilkenny, Ireland, October of 2010 and was reborn, rebranded, rebooted as Ken On Food in October 2017.
I’m Ken McGuire and I’ve been blogging and podcasting since 2004. The years since have been spent mixing food, arts, technology, music and sport.
I believe that food is the future.
Furthermore, I believe we should act local when it comes to food and that everyone – at some point – needs to get out of their comfort zone when it comes to food.
Beginning at Any Given Food
Starting Any Given Food in 2010 brought me to festivals and events the length and breadth of the country It provided the opportunity to talk, debate, engage, work, study and travel with food producers, growers, brands, bloggers, writers, podcast, restaurants, planners, and more.
Food travels have taken me from Canada to Dubai and the middle east, through London to France, Portugal, Croatia and home again – each time giving me a notebook full of ideas, content and stories.
Moving to Ken On Food
Transitioning to Ken On Food (2017), you’ll find those notebooks of stories and conversations coming to life with an Irish focus, covering my own food experiences, food events and festivals to food products, books and recipes. It’ll be fun too – trust me.
Food On The Radio
I began presenting on radio part-time in 2012, taking on a full time show in 2015. You’ll find me weekdays on KCLR presenting KCLR Drive from 3pm, an afternoon show mixed with entertainment, technology, food and great music. That food content you’ll also be able to access here. If you’ve a food story to share with an audience in Kilkenny and Carlow, email me.
