Kerrygold Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food & Wine 2014

The Kerrygold Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food and Wine was surrounded by a fabulous setting and a magical atmosphere throughout the weekend again this year. It was filled with fascinating facts, inspirational stories, intriguing discussions, incredible knowledge, fantastic music, fabulous dancing and of course, delicious food and drinks all weekend long.

Chocolate or Coffee Éclairs

Éclairs are inexpensive to make, freeze well and can be sweet or savoury filled and iced with a myriad of exciting combinations. Experiment and taste, so start with coffee or chocolate. Drizzle the éclairs with contrasting icing – simple but delicious, it could then be feathered in a variety of pattern or personalised with a name or message.

Even sprinkles and hundreds and thousands add a fun element. Coarsely chopped nuts toasted or otherwise! A single chocolate button or dragée can give a contemporary look.

Chocolate Orange Cake

Weigh the eggs. Take the same weight in butter, sugar and flour. Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and light in texture. Wash the oranges and add the finely grated rind of 2 and the juice of 1 to the butter mixture. Mix the flour and baking powder and add alternately with the eggs. Beat thoroughly. Bake in a 24cm (91/2in) tin in a moderate oven, 180°C/350°F/gas 4, for 50 minutes approx. Cool the cake and split it in two. Sandwich with the orange butter icing and spread the chocolate icing over the top and sides allowing any excess to run off.
 

Christmas Baking at Ballymaloe

This winter we got off to an early start. Christmas baking is usually in full swing by the first week of December. However this year the smell of candied peel, dried fruit and local whiskey filled the kitchen during early November too. It was all hands on deck to make the hundreds of puddings, cakes and mince pies that help make Christmas at Ballymaloe extra special. Anne, Stephan, Breda and Rebecca have been working very hard to ensure all of the Christmas baking goes to plan.
