Sunday was a special family dinner with the girls. Lots of chat about our final menu, what we've learnt and where we are going.
On Wednesday we were lucky enough to have a guided tour around Ballymaloe House and speak to the legend that is Myrtle Allen. Lucky us! We saw some fantastic stuff, the wine cellar with Colm, the Grainstore which is an event space and also these bad boys below!
These are two of my friends here at Ballymaloe Cookery School. I love this image!
Wednesday we also had sushi class and was lucky enough to try this fellow. The Oyster Plant which actually tastes like oysters!
And this beautiful plant is the Wasabi plant.
The atmosphere has changed too, everyone is a little more serious, practise for our practical exam is being sneaked around our daily menus and the are some heart to hearts going on.
It seems every time we have Rachel Allen for demo there is some wonderful animal she has to hold up! This time it was the stunning Thornback Ray.
We finished Fridays demo with an iced lolly. YUM!
