  • 30 Years At Ballymaloe
    30 Years At Ballymaloe
    ISBN: 9780857832078
    Publication date: 01/08/2014

    When Ballymaloe’s doors opened to students in 1983 there were 15 courses available. Now there are over 100, reflected in the recipes collected here, including curing meat, making gluten-free meals and sushi as well as learning forgotten skills like producing butter and cheese and beekeeping.
    The book chronicles how the school has been at the forefront of cooking and food trends since its inception, from Darina’s championing of the Slow Food movement and her highlighting the importance of using local, seasonal and fresh produce to installing a wood-burning oven and expanding its gardens so students can learn the importance of eating less meat and more veg and preserving heirloom varieties of produce.
    A fascinating insight into Ballymaloe, this is also a history of food over the past thirty years, from a time when Darina couldn’t get anything other than pre-packaged, grated Parmesan cheese to one where a local producer makes his own mozzarella.

    Darina Allen is Ireland’s best-known food ambassador and the bestselling author of Irish Traditional Cooking, Ballymaloe Cookery Course, A Year at Ballymaloe and Forgotten Skills of Cooking, which won the prestigious André Simon award in 2010 as well as the Listowel Food Fair Book of the Year Award. Her most recent book is 30 Years at Ballymaloe, which won the Avonmore Cookbook of the Year at the Irish Book Awards in 2013. She wrote for The Irish Times from 1990–1994 and has written a weekly food column for the Irish Examiner since 1998. Darina has presented nine series of her cookery programme, Simply Delicious, on television around the world. She runs the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Shanagarry, County Cork, which is situated in the middle of an 100-acre organic farm. In 2012 the Ballymaloe Cookery School was awarded the Good Food Ireland Cookery School of the Year. Darina is a tireless campaigner for local produce, setting up Ireland’s first farmers’ market. She has won many awards.

  • Appetite
    ISBN: 9781841154701
    Publication date: 01/12/2009

    Bestselling cookery writer Nigel Slater's mantra is 'recipes don't rule'. 'Appetite' is the revolutionary book that will help all cooks to have fun making anything from a baked potato to Christmas dinner. Inspiring and irresistible, 'Appetite' takes a hundred simple classics and casts aside the insecurities of normal recipes. Ingredients are listed, followed by a suggestion of how much you might need, i.e. 'double cream -- start with 100 ml then see how you go'. Readers will be liberated to use their own judgement, indeed actively encouraged to skip half the ingredients for pared-down versions that will teach them the essence of a dish. Recipe titles reflect this approach -- 'a cheap spaghetti supper', 'a big pork roast', 'a curry to make you sweat'. Slater's typically unpretentious style and ready wit put the fun back into food in this beautifully illustrated book. The first half is packed with instructive, funky photographs and covers all the basics -- from 'getting rid of the three-course-meal tyranny' to 'why junk food is so delicious'. A long and helpful section will tell you where to get hold of everything worth eating. Written partly for the non-cook, this will be varied enough to attract more experienced cooks and people who bought 'Real Food' and want another helping.
