Hi there! We're Russell & Patrick, and for the last decade we've been food & travel writers. We create city guides full of restaurant recommendations, delicious cocktail spots, must-try cafes and on-the-ground info about how to get around and what to see and do. We're known for our expert takes on cities like Lisbon, London, Brussels, Stockholm and more...
We also write long-reads and deep-dives for an exclusive audience on our Substack 'Chip Paper'. We punctuate our food writing features with hand-drawn illustrations and we offer both a free and premium subscription package.
We're also the presenters and producers of Irish food podcast Chew The Fat, which across several seasons has featured episodes with the likes of Nigella Lawson, Donal Skehan, Niamh Kavanagh, Michelin-starred chefs and more.
Why support us? Well, we're self starters. We've built a fledgling digital empire from the seed of a single hashtag ten years ago, and we've been grafting and hustling every day ever since –– making something from literally nothing. We're independent-minded, authoritative, transparent and trustworthy, which is why our content resonates so well with so many.
If you can't afford a tip, we completely understand –– a simple social media shout-out about what you want to recognise is always a lovely way to say thank you :)
