Win Tickets for LitFest

It's nearly LitFest time again. I've shared some highlights of the event so far - the NewYork and Dublin launches, and the wonderful chefs we have giving demonstrations at the event. This year it's on the weekend of May 15th-17th. We'd love to see you there. Today I have two pairs of tickets to give away... so be sure to read on for HOW TO WIN

Once again we will be welcoming some of the world's biggest names in food and drinks to Ballymaloe House and Ballymaloe Cookery School, to share their knowledge and passion with you. 

We have discussions, readings, workshops, as well as cookery demonstrations galore. This year's giants of food and drinks literature attending include: Alice Waters, David Lebovitz, Jancis Robinson, Sam and Sam Clark, Allegra McEvedy, April Bloomfield, John and Sally McKenna, Roger Phillips, Fuchsia Dunlop, A Girl Called Jack, Hugo Arnold, Tom Doorley, Christian Puglisi, Joanna Blythman, Rachel Allen....

And that's just the beginning. With over fifty speakers from home and abroad touching on all aspects of food and drinks, as well as our Big Shed Fringe event, it promises to be a weekend to savour.

For a full listing of events, and to book, check out the website.


We are giving away two pairs of tickets to see Jack Monroe, blogger, Guardian columnist and author from the hit blog A Girl Called Jack. 

She will be demonstrating recipes from her blog and bestselling book. This will be an interactive event, so each prize winner is invited to bring along one of the younger members of the household (8-12 years of age) to attend the demonstration for free, and they will have the opportunity to join her at the demonstration counter for practical cooking fun (if they would like!)
