French Foodie in Dublin is a magnificent blog concept, the writing is both informed and well formed. I cannot wait for The French Club review every week! I think the best approach to a country's culture is through it's food and music, and to see Ketty's writing on our Irish food helps me understand my own country's food culture even more. I find Travel or Expats food writing within my own country exceptionally interesting, it's essential social history documentation. Love frenchfoodieindublin xxxxx which is 5 stars by the way

08:41 AM November 27, 2012

I find this blog brilliant, full of useful tips and foodie information, and as a French man I love the inside track French Foodie gives to Dublin restaurants.

Ah Ketty, elle est exceptionelle! I love her blog. While reading it I usually end up starving or homesick!! Well done and keep it up!

12:54 PM November 27, 2012

My favorite resource for Ireland. Ketty brings her French passion for food to the increasingly sophisticated Irish food scene. Love her power for storytelling, mouthwatering photos and insider tips!

14:11 PM November 27, 2012

Whouah....what a great blog, good insight on what to expect on each restaurant, great, great idea, at least you wont waste your time going to the wrong place....
