Event description
Join Darina Allen, the bestselling author of Ballymaloe Cookery Course, and Sarah Maria Griffin, for International Women's Day

About this Event

Join Darina Allen, Ireland’s best- known food ambassador and the bestselling author of Ballymaloe Cookery Course in conversation with Sarah Maria Griffin, foodie, writer and podcaster as they discuss Darina’s long career as writer and educator. Continuing the theme of women’s culinary reflections, we will consider how food writing underpins recurring political projects and the theme of equality. Food and its role in the construction of individual, community and larger civic identities will be explored in what promises to be a fascinating discussion.

Darina Allen is Ireland’s best- known food ambassador and the bestselling author of Ballymaloe Cookery Course and Forgotten Skills of Cooking, which won the prestigious André Simon award in 2009. She campaigns for local produce, is a member of Slow Food Ireland and set up Ireland’s first farmers’ market. She has won many awards including the Guild of Food Writers’ Lifetime Achievement award in 2013.

Sarah Maria Griffin is a writer and poet from Dublin. She is a former dlr Writer in Residence.
