Oh Ballymaloe…

Sometimes I think Darina Allen can read my mind… It’s a bit scary if she can, but I can’t deny that it produces some epic results if she is rummaging around in my brain.

This little gem of a course was brought to my attention by one of the girls in work recently. A two and a half day Start Your Own Tea Shop course in Ballymaloe… *sighs longingly* I would love to start my own tea shop! There would be cakes, pastel colours and mismatched cutlery galore!

Now if only I was fabulously wealthy and had money and time to burn… I wonder if work would sponsor me to go down for a few days. I bring most of my baked goods into them. It would be a lovely way of repaying me! We could probably pretend it was part of my Learning and Development plan for the year.

  1. Hi Aoife
    Thanks for the like on my top-of-the-mountain cake! And oh no… Darina’s got a start-your-teashop course. This is not just a woman with her finger constantly on the pulse of what’ll work for her business. My personal theory is that RTE long ago developed two-way technology and she was the prime user, infiltrating our minds while she so effortlessly threw a sponge together. I think the truth should out!
    Keep on baking!
