Beginners Cookery Course
(01) 668 1553
A brand new course for brand new cooks, this course will cover the absolute basics of cooking, soups and meat preparation, pastry and desserts. (Those with some basic cookery skills already should try the Cookery Toolbox).
For those who have never cooked, we offer an introduction to cookery skills and a range of basic recipes, on which you can build. Setting up home or heading off to University can be very daunting, but the thought of having to cook and fend for yourself can be one problem easily solved. However our students include retired business people who have never cooked in their lives, and people who were never interested in cookery, but have recently caught the bug.
There is no better way to learn than through the hands on cooking of simple and easy meals with an experienced teacher. You will of course get to try all the dishes that you cook and take them home together with all the recipes for the food prepared. All our classes also come with the full backup of our cookery advice service.
