This is the sixth episode of our Who Run The World? season celebrating women in food. Today's guest is Darina Allen, founder of world-renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland and bestselling author of 19 cookbooks. We absolutely love Darina and the school and have had many of her graduates working in our kitchens over the years. We chatted to Darina about how she came to run the fabulous Ballymaloe, what it's like be part of a cooking dynasty and what it takes to be a successful cookbook author. It was wonderful to hear Darina talking so passionately about her experiences running a successful family business in rural Ireland, as well as the sustainable ethos at the core of everything that Ballymaloe does, and the values she instills in all her students, especially about the importance of creating an inclusive kitchen culture.
Hope you enjoy!
