The calm nature will come in handy for Ballymaloe’s busy chef and teacher who is in the process of relocating from his famous East Cork home, before embarking on new construction with her husband Isaac and their children.

She said: “We are moving right now.

“We’re building again, and moving into another house by the minute so it’s kinda crazy. “

Their plush pillow at Shanagarry in Midleton, which has hosted Rachel’s shows over the years, went on sale for € 795,000 in April 2020 and finally sold out this summer.

After moving the rest of the belongings from their old home last week, Rachel said she and her family will be spending Christmas in a new rented home while they begin their new construction.
