Last month I went to London for the day to attend a few different blogging events, it was an action packed, ridiculously hot and thoroughly enjoyable day. One of the events I attended was at Cactus Kitchens and was a demonstration lunch with one of my very favourite chefs Rachel Allen and Ballymaloe Country Relish.
The afternoon started well with a glass of ice old lemonade which was definitely needed after some tube travelling on the hottest day of the year. Rachel showed us how to make gorgeous soda bread rolls and loaves as well as sausage rolls, scotch eggs, burgers and cheese fondue all enhanced in some way by Ballymaloe Relish whether by a dollop added into the mix or added at the end.
As you can imagine the food was incredible, we all enjoyed sampling the goodies on offer – my favourites being the sausage rolls and the devilled eggs. We also took some of the bread and relish home with us.
I’ve since used mine in loads of ways from homemade burgers, to liven up my mayo and I love it with a good strong cheese and oatcakes.
I’d definitely suggest buying some to give it a go. There are some other great products in the Ballymaloe range including jalapeño relish and mint jelly! Yum.
Thanks to Rachel and the Ballymaloe team for a great afternoon.
