This evening on (RTE1, 7pm) Rory O'Connell has emerged as an unlikely celebrity chef and in his latest series he explores the cuisine and culture of Europe. Food becomes much more interesting when seen in context, is his rationale for the eight-part travelogue, which begins in Palma, Mallorca. An art nouveau bakery in the trendy metropolis is his first port of call, after which he wanders through a warren of streets beside the cathedral and eats lunch. O'Connell's itinerary also includes a visit to a finca (country estate) once owned by a pirate. Back home in his Ballycotton kitchen he bakes a cake using ingredients bought during his trip.

Xanthe is our youngest sourdough customer. She has 4 brothers and sisters, so 1 loaf each. #sourdough #whiteyeastsourdough #breadshed #ballymaloebreadshed #shanagarryfarmshop
Huge congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the arrival of their baby boy! 👶🏻 This Saturday 11th at 2pm Claire Ptak, the creator of the Royal wedding cake — will be giving a cookery demonstration here at the Ballymaloe Cookery School. 👩🍳 Californian Claire Ptak, owner of Violet Bakery in London (@violetcakeslondon), creates recipes that are both nourishing and indulgent. Claire Ptak has gone from running a successful — if comparatively hidden — gem of a bakery on a quiet residential street in Hackney, east London, to the internationally known mastermind of the cake served at the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. 👩🍳 Claire has been to the school several times before and each time she leaves we have a few more of her delights to add to our repetoire. Now Claire is coming once more to the school to show us all how to make the wonderful treats. Baking at the Violet Bakery is done using simple ingredients including whole grain flours, less refined sugars, and the natural sweetness and nuanced hues of seasonal fruits. 🍰 With a careful eye to taste and using the purest ingredients, Claire creates the most flavourful iterations of classic cakes, as well as new treats for modern plates.Claire started her business as a market stall on Broadway Market, Hackney, cooking from home before opening the café in 2010. Every Saturday people queue up at her stall on nearby Broadway Market (which sells out every week) to sample her dark ginger molasses cake, or to buy a box of miniature cupcakes, iced with chocolate, salted caramel or the essence of whatever fruit is in season. Or they visit the Violet Bakery cafe for a mug of tea and a lovely, grainy polenta muffin topped with a slice of blood orange or for one of Claire’s scones, whose flavour changes daily. 🍰 The royal wedding cake used: ￼🍋 200 Amalfi lemons ￼🥚500 organic eggs from Suffolk 🐄 20kgs of butter ￼🍰 20kgs of flour ￼🍬 20kgs of sugar ￼🍾 10 bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial.

We do this by making tons of humus every year. Seaweed is one of the most valuable soil conditioners in the world. It has been observed that by the use of seaweed, the structure of soil improved considerably preventing the soil, seedlings and nutrients from being washed away even during heavy rainfall. Similarly Humic and Fulvic substances is another example of such treasure from the nature. They are natural acids that are found in humus. One can effectively make Humic and Fulvic acid when one makes compost, and they account for many of the benefits of humus. They are considered one of the best inputs in regenerative agriculture because of their multiple benefits. These include increased nutrient uptake, stabilization of leachable minerals, stimulation of root growth, dramatic improvement in soil structure, the detoxification of contaminants and the promotion of healthy, resilient plants. Most importantly, these natural substances can help trigger carbon sequestration in soil, as they are the most powerful known stimulants of the organisms responsible for humus formation. It is observed that a mere increase in just 1% organic matter in the soil may increase the soil capacity to hold water by many fold according to researchers. Nurturing the nature and conserving the soil is of paramount importance in today’s scenario as we are heading towards disaster due to loss of soil quality and in turn productivity. If we do not become aware and conscious about the degrading scenario and continue with our relentless use of harmful chemicals and negligence towards mother earth then the day is not far away when we are on the verge of becoming endangered species due to lack of life sustaining food. Let us embark on the journey to create awareness to Nurture the Nature by striving for sustainable agricultural practices.

We have this apple tree growing by the school, in full blossom now, but have no idea what variety it is, but it has the most delicious early apples. #appleblossim #ihavenoidea
