Garrett Fitzgerald

brother-hubbard-06812Garrett Fitzgerald left his office-based career to follow his dream: to immerse himself in the creative adventures to be enjoyed with food. That journey started off with three wonderful months in Darina Allen’s Ballymaloe Cookery School. Next, he and his partner James travelled the world, exploring the flavours of local food throughout. They spent a year in Melbourne, working in a charming little bakery and in a café, both businesses dedicated to purity, creativity and quality. Deciding to focus on the relatively undiscovered yet vibrant, healthy food of the Middle East, Garrett journeyed for several months through its streets, souks and bazaars, eating with locals and learning the secrets of their food and its part in their lives. Bringing that experience back home, on a wing and a prayer, Brother Hubbard opened on Dublin’s Capel Street in 2012, during the darkest hours of the recession. What once was a small fledgling café has since become so much more, with a team dedicated to bringing the best of breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and baking to its community of customers. A second café opened in September to continue that culinary journey. A taste of these wonderful adventures await all who use this book.
