A great day out from the kitchen schools tour

So today we went out on a tour, we went to a market in Cork called ... where Darina went from stall to stall telling us all about produce at each of the stalls and how the stall began. After the market we went to a garden centre to look at how fresh produce is grown.

After the garden we visited a lady in Country Cork who makes cheese and she had won many awards for her cheese making so that was fantastic. She had an amazing story to tell the group about how she started and we got to taste some of her amazing cheese that’s known worldwide.

After the cheese-making we left and headed to a lovely little coffee shop in Cork called .... the owners told the group how they began and what’s good in starting a coffee shop. We tasted a few things and then headed back to Ballymaloe. I had a great day but am happy to be back now to get prepared for the kitchen tomorrow until then.
