Delighted to be on the cover of the RTE Guide

This week I am honoured to be the cover star of the RTE GUIDE.

We had great fun with the team getting the cover shot absolutely right - hope you like it!   Inside you can also read all about my next TV series, my latest cookbook and life in general here at Ballyknocken House & Cookery School.
