About Forkful
We are friends who love making simple food look beautiful. We hope our recipes will inspire you to get into the kitchen this season. Aoife McElwain works in front of the camera writing the recipes and styling the food, while Mark Duggan works behind the camera to make sure it all looks as delicious as possible. We work with editors such as Killian Broderick and music supervisors like Nialler9 to make sure that our finished videos look and sound as smart as possible. We work with brands like Glenisk and Folláin to help them create delicious video content for their online platforms. When we're not making videos, we write a weekly column called Speedy Suppers on Thursdays in The Irish Independent. Aoife writes the recipes and styles the food while Mark takes the photographs.

carrot cupcakes
We used to be afraid of baking. Big time. Making cakes for friends was an insurmountable task. And one made more confusing by the ease with which it came to others. "What's wrong with us?" we'd ask ourselves, while guiltily gorging on bakery-bought eclairs. "Why can't we bake?"
