What You’ll Get
Are you an early riser? Well, this is a “behind the scenes” experience to wake up for.
Step into the kitchen and work side by side with the Ballymaloe Pastry Chef. Roll up your sleeves and learn the secrets of Ballymaloe bread baking. Remember, rarely are two Irish soda breads the same! You will bake Myrtle’s legendary brown yeast bread and Irish soda bread and help the professional team of chefs prepare all the freshly baked loaves for the house’s renowned breakfast buffet. And you won’t leave empty-handed, you will take with you your own home-baked loaves of bread and individual copies of the recipes.
Bread making lesson in the Ballymaloe House kitchen.
