Ballymaloe LitFest of food and wine

Inspiration is medicine for the soul and with the likes of Claudia Roden, Madhur Jaffrey, Sandor Katz, Stephanie Alexander, Darina Allen, Myrtle Allen and David Thompson in one place there was plenty of it to go around last weekend. The first Ballymaloe Litfest of food and wine took place in East Cork which attracted everyone interested in good and pure food. Ted Burner played a blinder in the Big Shed, transforming a huge farmyard shed into a mecca for interesting food and people, the whole event was truly unique and completely inspiring. I drove out of Ballymaloe last night rejuvenated and knowing that our food culture was in good hands, the people i met all had one thing in common and that was to preserve our unique food heritage and in some cases to improve on it.
So well done to everyone at Ballymaloe for putting on such a uplifting event......

  1. Big question: are you going to make some of that elderflower/elderberry vinegar that we tasted at the fermentation workshop?
