Beautiful Romanesco

This week we will pick the first of our beautiful Romanesco from the Ballymaloe Garden. It is a very impressive looking Vegetable from the Brassica Oleracea Species. It grows in a logarithmic Spiral and has a delicate nutty flavour. Look out for it on the menu

Rhône Wine Tasting

Rhône Wine Week takes place from 25th to 30th November 2013 around the country. We’ve also come across claims that St Patrick himself brought Syrah to the Rhône (and we’d like to think he did) then for Rhône Wine Week we are in a way welcoming home many of our own. Syrah is one of the main grape varieties grown in the Rhône Valley; it is truly at home in this region.

Visit the Ballymaloe pop up wine shop at the newly launched Food Emporium at Brown Thomas Cork, on Saturday 30th November, pop in anytime from from 10.30am - 6.30pm

It was like stepping back in time… But in a good way!... The hand printed wallpapers illuminated by candlelit... The silverware overflowing with perfectly ripe fruit… The ladies donned their finest pearls and the gents their bow ties…. And the food was simply delicious.

The first ever Ballymaloe House Supper Club took place on Tuesday night. It was soiree like no other. The Downton Abbey theme gave guests the opportunity to dress like lords and ladies while the kitchen produces a menu that captured the best of post Edwardian life.
