Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Ballymaloe Cooking School, which Allen and her husband opened at his family's Ballymaloe House Hotel in Cork County, Ireland, in 1983, has an international reputation, and this impressive new cookbook/reference makes it easy to see why. With its own organic farm and extensive gardens, the school has always been known for its emphasis on fresh, seasonal cooking, and Allen's sophisticated recipes, from Roast Red Pepper, Caper, and Preserved Lemon Salad to Seared Beef with Gorgonzola, Polenta, and Red Onion Marmalade, draw on cuisines from around the world; guest chefs at the school have included Marcella Hazan, Madhur Jaffrey, and other culinary authorities. In addition to the hundreds of recipes, there are dozens of technique photos illustrating some 200 essential kitchen tasks, as well as stunning color photographs of ingredients and finished dishes. Chapter introductions touch on a wide range of topics, and there are separate sections on breakfast, drinks, finger foods, and preserves of all sorts. Although this will be as valuable as a reference work as a cookbook, the text is far from dry Allen writes with a sense of humor and a nice turn of phrase. Highly recommended.

    To our surprise this has become our kitchen bible

    This book has become our reference text by virtue of its clarity and simplicity. We've made dozens of these recipes over the past few years. Each has been a hit. Better yet this book has 'raised out game' in the kitchen by educating us on technique and ingredients. Only complaint is the substandard and often erroneous index.
