Ballymaloe Day 81: The Studious Adventures of Úna-Minh Kavanagh

And finally for dessert: Yoghurt and Cardamom Cream with Pomegranate and Rose Blossom Water

Time flies when you get towards the end of an adventure.

Today I had a glorious lie-in, where my dreams weren’t filled with any sort of worry and my mind was at ease.

Despite having a long day of exams ahead of me on Friday, I was mostly calm throughout the morning. Getting some quick revision in, I went through notes and tidied before I nabbed a bite to eat.

In the larder, “Florrie’s Deli”, had opened where we could all pick and mix the various foods that students had cooked for their exams.

I took my fill and brought it back to the house, then popping on my chef whites, I headed back in to help the busy Florrie with tidying and putting away dishes, along with Martha and Sophie.

It was great to see all the dishes come into the larder, and I’ve no doubt that people did really well in their exams – the standard was very impressive, even if we only got a glimpse of the final dishes.

Going through spices, cuts of meat and salad identification, we cleaned a revised as well as getting to taste delicious food!

Back in the Coach House, the next plan of action was to sit back and go through the reams of notes that needed to be somewhere lodged in my brain for the next 24 hours.

I’ve gone through so many things but I’ve no idea how it’ll all stay there…

Hard to believe that by this time tomorrow, we’ll be done…
