Darina Allen wins Cookbook of the Year!

Congratulations to Darina Allen, her new cook book '30 Years at Ballymaloe' won 'Cookbook of the year!" in the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards last night!

The book chronicles how Ballymaloe Cookery 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.

You can buy a signed copy of Darina's book from the Ballymaloe Cookery School website
