The restaurant at Ballymaloe House has been welcoming guests from all over the world since Myrtle Allen opened the doors of her family dining room to the public in 1964. Her philosophy of serving fresh, seasonal food from the surrounding farm, walled garden and local area was the start of the farm to fork revolution in Irish food which continues to this day. 

The menu at Ballymaloe House has evolved throughout the years, but there are many classic dishes that continue to be favourites and that people come back year after year to enjoy.  

We have chosen a selection of iconic, signature dishes from 60 years of Ballymaloe House menus for this demonstration and for you to enjoy cooking at home. Recipes and tastings included.

Also available as a live stream.
