A Taste of Ireland with Ed Finn

Fern Allen of Ballymaloe House

36 minutes | Sunday, November 7th, 2021

Our special guest this week is Fern Allen the manager of world renowned Ballymaloe House and daughter of the late Myrtle Allen who established a new era of Irish food and raised Ireland’s foodie profile internationally. I spoke to her about the secrets of running a hugely successful family business. "My mother, Myrtle didn’t have a lot of knowledge of how to cook but wanted to feed all the visitors that came to see the farm.  Cooking seemed like a very natural progression for her. My dad produced wonderful ingredients and so, my mother learned how to cook."  in partnership with Ireland's Blue Book - www.ballymaloe.ie
