Sean Dunne from Irish Central, a hugely popular Irish-American website, recently posted a comprehensive article about Ballymaloe.
The revolution in Irish cooking and the uptake in organic wholesome food where the focus is on ingredients, can be credited to one family in Ireland, the Allens.

Christmas Day at Ballymaloe

Every year Ballymaloe closes for a few days over Christmas when the house returns to a family home and this year we had a record number of 64 family and friends for Christmas dinner. Myrtle gives everyone a job - cooking, waitressing, making pre dinner cocktails, washing up, organising games etc. This year Cully got the very important roll as head chef! But with several very will qualified sous chefs (including Darina) and a cocktail or two to keep things festive, it was one of the more enjoyable jobs.

Downton Abbey Supper Club

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.
