Ballymaloe on Tour ... to South Africa

It was almost a case of … last person in Ballymaloe, turn of the lights as many staff, family & friends headed off to the sunny destination of South Africa. Well, Sun city & Capetown to be more precise! Off to celebrate the wedding of my wonderful friend and colleague and well known receptionist, Lyndsay Greer to her sweetheart, Michael Cashman.
And from the moment we arrived, Lyndsay’s uniqueness and impeccable attention to detail shone.

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.
