dining winner kildareWinner: The Ballymore Inn marked its 20th year this year with a cookbook that tempted me down to the quiet village for Sunday lunch. I had a meal that brought be back to my mother’s kitchen with a classic chicken liver pate recipe they’ve been making this way since it opened. A very happy place to be.
