“When you step through the little wooden side gate and into the courtyard of Ballymaloe Cookery School you enter a different world. A world where the whole emphasis is on food – growing it, preparing it, cooking it, eating it and, crucially, enjoying it.”
The Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland is only culinary school in the world to be located in the middle of it’s own 100 acre organic farm. They believe in sustainable use of resources, using seasonal produce, cooking with the finest and freshest ingredients, eating local whenever possible and making cooking and eating fun. Chef Alex and the Roadhouse have been long time admirers of the Ballymaloe Cookery School and its owner, Darina Allen, Ireland’s best-known chef. Creating a menu prepared the way it would be at Ballymaloe, Chef Alex will honor this long time Irish institution with a traditional Irish farm dinner at the Roadhouse.
