  2. Hi Siobhan…best send me an email via as my cook@bibliocook is being spammed to the max at the moment.

    This dark and cold weather has slowed everybody up.

  4. To be honest, we’ve been pretty lucky with the weather here all through the course – the evenings are dark at this stage but the mornings are still gorgeous and it’s great to see the sun rise across Ballycotton bay as I go into school. Think it was just a bad day!

    Hey, just stumbled across this site. There are some great recipes. I am doing a photography project on food in cork so it is really great to read this. Was down in Ballymaloe house and cookery school 2 weeks ago and it is a lovely place and your really lucky to be doing a course there. Hope it all goes well for you!

  6. Thank’s Aibhínn – I’m afraid you won’t find many photos at the moment on the site as, during our last move, the lead to connect the camera to the computer disappeared. Not like I would have had time to actually take or upload pictures anyway! Pity that we didn’t meet up when you were down – were you in for lunch and an afternoon demo?

  7. Aibhínn says:

    I was there taking photographs so was in the kitchen in Ballymaloe and in and out of the school, was snappng at the back of Rachel’s demonstration on Ice Cream. I was also at the Midleton market recently and took photographs there of the Ballymaloe stall.

  8. We’ve done so many ice cream demos at this stage that I can’t remember when that was! When were you at the Middleton market? The day I was working there – with a very red face from the unseasonal heat! there was someone taking photographs of the stall. That wasn’t you, by any chance?

  9. Aibhínn says:

    Ya its possible, i just looked there and the day you posted the post about the market is a few days after when I was there. It was a very bright sunny day, so chances are it was me.
