Courses for January 2019



Saturday 19th January

Worried about your yeast? Not sure if knocking down relates to your dough or a traffic offence? If you think Focaccia is an Italian swear word, then this could be the day for you. A fully immersive bread making day for anyone who has always wanted to make their own bread but didn’t know where to start. We will cook focaccia, spelt flour bread, granary bread, pita bread and maybe some other breads if time allows. There will be plenty of time to eat and smell fresh bread and also left-overs to take home. You’ll never want shop-bought bread again!

Cost:  €70 which includes all ingredients and a comprehensive hand out.


Saturday 2nd February
Indian Cuisine Cookery Course

We are re-running this after getting many requests to do so. Spend the day learning how to cook (and eat!) food from India. A hands-on day of interesting flavours and fragrances. Get to grips with making your own curry spice mixes, the best samosa, chapati’s and how to cook perfect rice (hopefully!). Each of India’s regions could take up a lifetime of cookery courses, but we will try to give you a Rough Guide tour of some of the ‘hot’ spots and a useful handout to take home.

Cost:  €70 which includes all ingredients and a comprehensive hand out.


Healthy Vegan Cooking
New Date TBC

Is your bum sore from sitting on the sofa? Maybe there’s an extra 25mm or so on your love handles?

Good! I’m not here to preach, so relax about all that. Hopefully you had a good time during the festive season but now you are thinking it’s time to ease off the chocolates, shut the door on the advent calendar and think about Veganuary – the so-called month where you swap turkey sandwiches for raw veg wraps and crispy salads washed down with a green smoothie.

We will be running a day of hands-on cooking concentrating on the lighter, healthier side of vegan food with plenty of simple but tasty salads, ‘buddah bowls’, raw food combinations and alternatives to sandwiches, salads made with quinoa and noodles and a few energy snacks thrown in for good measure.

Cost:  €70 which includes all ingredients and a comprehensive hand out.


An Introduction to Vegan Cookery New Dates TBC


After the sell-out success of the last few cookery courses, we are repeating this one for those we couldn’t squeeze in last time – there are a few spare places if you fancy getting to grips with the mysteries of tofu, the temptation of tempeh and how to make an egg free tortilla! A hands-on day of cooking and eating with an information-packed hand-out to take home.

Cost:  €70 which includes all ingredients and a comprehensive hand out.




Heading to college - Healthy vegan budget cooking for young people

A course for young people who may be leaving home for the first time and wish to follow a healthy plant-based diet on a tight budget.

Also, packed lunches with a punch – power salads and sandwiches, easy flapjacks and the magic of the avocado that will keep you away from the unhealthy and expensive takeaway lunch.
