“I’m excited to share that Ballymaloe Desserts is now available for pre-order at (link in bio). A limited number of signed copies are available exclusively through It will be available worldwide in October 2022.

The idea for the project came about almost 10 years ago when Hazel Allen asked if I’d be interested in writing a little book to sell from the hall table in Ballymaloe House. I waited a few years, until I felt the time was right and I was ready, and now the idea for that little book has become something a bit bigger, and I’m very excited to share it with the world. Working with @phaidonpress as publisher, @emilytakoudes as commissioning editor, @inkslinger_girl as project editor, @cliodhnaprendergast as photographer and @apartamentostudios as the designer has been a dream come true for me. I hope you all enjoy using this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.”

Rachel Allen’s Strawberry and Rhubarb cobbler


Strawberry and rhubarb has to be my favourite summer flavour combination and in this recipe, 
the two juicy fruits lie underneath a 
thick blanket of crunchy, buttery deliciousness.

Rory O’Connell – sponge filled with preserved raspberries, wrapped in pillowy marshmallow with a scattering of roses @kerrygoldirl

I will be making this beauty on @rteone this evening at 8 30. It’s a sponge filled with preserved raspberries and all wrapped in a pillowy marshmallow before having roses scattered all over it. It’s a special cake for the special people in your life. @kerrygoldirl #cake #marshmallows #preserves #eat #delicious #ilovetocook
