Celebrate St Patrick’s Day with a splash of tangy Turf Sauce

Kitty O’Byrnes is a proper Irish success story.

Founded in 2013, Kitty’s is a small food company created by Deb Ross, a Dublin-based foodie, and is home of Turf Sauce. Available in three flavours – smoked; sweet and tangy, and hot –  the sauce is based on  an original recipe, made sweet and tangy sauce with Irish Stout. Use it as a marinade on meats such as beef or pork

As Kitty says: “My love for food and cooking is soaked in childhood memories; watching my Grandmother churn butter into yellow bricks of salted goodness; my Mother’s Sunday roasts, freshly baked soda bread, cakes and pies; my Father’s return from a fishing trip, freshly caught trout sautéing gently in butter.

“My idea of heaven is seated around my kitchen table with family and friends sharing food, stories and laughter… the perfect ingredients for making memories,” she says!

I am a freelance journalist and published author focusing on the international world of food and drink; business startups and enterprise; culture and travel. In 2019 I graduated from the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy with a Masters in Food Culture, Communication and Marketing. I am now a visiting Professor at the university teaching Food & Drink Writing. Based in London I travel widely, particularly across western Europe. I have chaired many conferences and meetings, spoken at conferences and events and often appear on radio and TV talking most about food, the business of food and being an entrepreneur. In 2017 I won an episode of the ITV (the UK-based national television channel) cooking competition show, 'Gordon Ramsay's Culinary Genius'. I took my children on holiday to Sicily with the prize money. As an experienced farmers' market manager and operator of a small marmalade/ preserves company, I am very familiar with the issues surrounding local food, farming, enterprise and the environment.
