    Better check your link to The Tannery (unless Paul has branched out!)

    Thanks Martin – that’s what comes of being interrupted by Darina when you’re updating your blog! I was here late on Monday and suddenly Darina wanted to close up shop so I just saved and ran. It’s changed now. Just saw that the Georgina Campbell Guide named Mr Flynn as their Chef of the Year – must go back for a proper meal at some stage.

    Thanks Sue – hope I’m giving you an idea of what it’s like in here! When I was trying to make up my mind about whether I should do the course I went looking for blogs that had more information than I could get on the Ballymaloe Cookery School site but there was nothing out there at the time. Post any specific questions that you have and I’ll answer them here – they’re all probably things that I wanted to know before I started myself!
