Pear & Almond Clafoutis from Ballyknocken Cookery School


Thanks to Catherine Fulvio and her team in Ashford, Co Wicklow Andrew and I had a fantastic day at this hands on Cookery School. As well as a beautiful setting, excellent recipes and realxed atmosphere - Catherine was keen to show us knife techniques, alternative versions of all 7 (!) recipes using different ingredients and treated us to a tour of the herb garden. The day was rounded off with a late lunch as prepared by all those attending. Well worth a visit!
