The restaurant at Ballymaloe House has been welcoming guests from all over the world since Myrtle Allen opened the doors of her family dining room to the public in 1964. Her philosophy of serving fresh, seasonal food from the surrounding farm, walled garden and local area was the start of the farm to fork revolution in Irish food which continues to this day.
The menu at Ballymaloe House has evolved throughout the years, but there are many classic dishes that continue to be favourites and that people come back year after year to enjoy.
We have chosen a selection of iconic, signature dishes from 60 years of Ballymaloe House menus for this demonstration and for you to enjoy cooking at home. Recipes and tastings included.
What you’ll learn
Good to know
The prestigious Ballymaloe 12 WeekCertificate Course is run three times a year, with courses beginning in January,April or May, and September.
The course is aimed at anyone with a passionate interest in food. Many of our students use the course as a springboard to become a professional chef; others use it to equip themselves with a marketable skill.
Others still take the course simply to maximize the pleasure they get from cooking at home.
Students develop a deep and detailed understanding of food and how it is produced. The emphasis is on recognising the best ingredients and knowing how to showcase them.
