From the cover: “The name of Ballymaloe has now passed into the lore and legend of good food and good cooking throughout the world. When Myrtle Alien’s Cooking at Ballymaloe House was originally published in 1990 it became an almost instant classic. Those who had been to Ballymaloe and those who knew of it by reputation welcomed this groundbreaking cookbook devoted to simple yet elegant versions of traditional Irish dishes.

Now in a completely redesigned edition, which includes additional photography by Mick Hales, Myrtle Alien presents 100 favoured recipes from her repertoire accompanied by 50 stunning colour photographs which capture the unique atmosphere of Ballymaloe House itself, its interior, its gardens and, of course, its food.

This wonderful celebration of Myrtle Alien’s genius will be welcomed by her countless admirers and by all those for whom the name of Ballymaloe conjures up a certain magic.”
