Bred and buttered in Belfast, Aidan Maguire studied design in Blackpool. Moving from one famous beach resort to another, in August 2007 he joined us by the sea in Donegal. Aidan's culinary contributions at lunchtimes are the stuff of legend but his greatest interest is in the accompanying table conversation whenever it turns to film.
