The idea of a bowl filled with the freshest ingredients has been around for years, but it has been difficult to achieve.
Now, the food revolution has brought it back to life.
With the arrival of the cereal craze, a new generation of bowl-makers has sprung up across the country.
A new generation has also been brought into the food industry, with the rise of the ‘granny bowl’.
RTE has spoken to the grannies who started the granny bowl revolution, to get their perspective.
The Breakfast Show – RTE Breakfast Show with Michelle O’Callaghan, the Food and Drink Editor, joins us to talk to the Grannies, to understand what the grans are doing with their bowls and what they hope the gran food revolution can bring about for them.
Grannys at Work – Granny Bowls and Granny’s Day Michelle O”As a granny, I feel very privileged.
I’m just a little bit more aware of how much I do in the world than the average granny.
I am so much more aware that I have a role to play in my community and in the community of my family.
It’s important that I do this, that I am a part of this movement.
When you have someone like me who is part of the grange, who has this role, I think that is really rewarding and it’s very important.
Granny Day – Granniness Granniest Day of the Year Michelle O “It’s been very exciting to see the rise in the number of people who have been able to come out to breakfast and take part in this breakfast thing.
I think it’s great that we’re able to take part.
I feel proud to be part of that.
I love this time of year because I have been to a number of different places where I can see the grands growing.
It has been a very exciting time for me.
I’ve been able in the last two years to put that all to the test. “
I’ve always wanted to work in the field of food but I was never really interested in being a part-time job.
I’ve been able in the last two years to put that all to the test.
I have done all the work.
I was just always interested in doing my bit and having the opportunity to make a difference.”
Michelle’s Granny-Bowls Michelle O Michelle O and her children Sarah and Nick O’Connor have been involved in the grannie bowl revolution.
“When I first started, we started off with the breakfast bowl because it’s a very traditional thing.
But when I got involved in this, we realised that we could create something much more exciting, and I’m really pleased that people have embraced the idea.”
Michelle and her family have been a part in many of the bowl’s events.
“We have done some really amazing things, from doing breakfast to taking part in the celebrations, to the birthday parties and even having our own granny bowls.
I do feel really proud that people are getting involved.”
Granny Baking Michelle O O Michelle is very involved in what she calls the grancilyard.
“Grannies are a very diverse group.
I would say that I’m the youngest of the four of us and I grew up with Grannie 1, which was an organisation for people with special needs.
I think people don’t realise how much they have in common, how much we have in our culture and how much love we have for food.” “
It is important to say, ‘This is what it’s like to have special needs’.
I think people don’t realise how much they have in common, how much we have in our culture and how much love we have for food.”
Grannilyard Michelle O Grannying is an opportunity to meet people and meet the people who make our granny’s day a success.
“To me, it is just about being in contact with people.
If you’re having breakfast and you meet people who are having breakfast, then you’re in touch with all the different people.
It is a very positive thing.
It helps to build a bond and that bond is really important for us.
I can say that because of the social interaction we’ve had with people and how well we are connected, that’s what it is all about.”
Grannie’s Day with Michelle and Nick Michelle O with her daughter Sarah O’Coates and her son Nick OConnor have also been part of Granny bowls, and they have all contributed to a granniness revolution.
The Granny bowl, named after Michelle O’, is the most popular, and most successful of the day, Michelle O says.
Every year there is something
