Things are getting really exciting here at Ballymaloe as we're gearing up for the Kerrygold Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food and Wine 2015!
I just wish that I could go to every single talk, tasting and demonstration as there are so many amazing events happening. I'm going to be hosting a demo with Allegra McEvedy at the cookery school, as well as one with Leylie Hayes and Hugo Arnold from Avoca. I'm also hoping to get to see Christian Puglisi as I've eaten in a couple of his restaurants in Copenhagen and adored them both.
I love Fuchsia Dunlop's take on Asian food, so hopefully I'll get to catch up with her too. I'll definitely be heading to the Big Shed, which is where everyone goes to hang out and sample some fabulous food and craft beers, and this year, there is going to be lots of brilliant workshops happening down there too.
Basically, whether you're two or 82, there's a great weekend in store!
The third Kerrygold Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food and Wine runs from May 15-17. The full schedule of events and speakers is now available on the LitFest website www.litfest.ie with some events sold out.
