Skylight - Screening

Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and Matthew Beard appear in the West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, which was recorded live in London's Wyndham’s Theatre in July of this year. We present it on a screen in The Grainstore.

Foster and Allen

Following on from the success of their No. 1 TV Show on TG4, Foster and Allen embark on an Irish Summer Tour which concludes in Ballymaloe Grainstore on Sunday 14 September.

Mick Foster and Tony Allen continue to scale new heights after almost four decades in the music business. Their new 13-week series, The Foster and Allen Show, is currently airing on TG4 on Sunday nights.

Jimmy MacCarthy

One of Ireland's foremost songwriters, Jimmy MacCarthy, brings his ‘Prophecy/Conspiracy?' tour to the Grainstore on Sunday 24 August.

The Macroom native has written classics of the Irish folk and contemporary repertoire including No Frontiers, Missing You, Ride On ,Katie, The Bright Blue Rose, The Contender, Mystic Lipstick, Song of the Singing Horseman, and many more.

Jimmy has worked with major Irish artists such as Christy Moore, Mary Black, Mary Coughlin and Maura O’Connell and has released four albums of his own.

Yoghurt and Cardamom Cream with Sugared Strawberries

Put the milk, sugar and cream into a stainless steel saucepan with the ground cardamom, stir until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is warm to the touch. Remove from the heat and leave to sit to infuse while you dissolve the gelatine. Sponge the gelatine in a small bowl with 4 tablespoons (4 American tablespoons + 4 teaspoons) of cold water. Put the bowl into a saucepan of simmering water until the gelatine has melted and is completely clear. Add a little of the infused milk mixture and stir well and then mix this into the rest.

Green Gooseberries

Spring brought with it more fruit blossoms than any pastry chef could ever wish for. Anticipating the first Summer harvest always generates excitement in the Ballymaloe kitchen. Apart from a scant number of strawberries, the first substantial crop always comes from the green gooseberries bushes. The first small green gooseberries always have the most intense flavour. Biting into a raw berrie shocks the pallet into summer mode! Once picked the berries must be “topped and tailed”. A pleasant job for those that have time to sit in the sun.
