Learn to Cook Gourmet Irish Cuisine with a Local Celebrity Chef in Dublin


4 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

Join your local host Mary at her large, colorful Provencal-style kitchen with an Aga oven. Learn to cook a seasonal, modern Irish meal from fail-safe recipes that Mary has perfected over the years. During your hands-on cooking class you will learn to cook 2-3 dishes from scratch - an appetizer, a main dish and a side or dessert - before you sit down at the table to share the meal you helped prepare. Please note that as some dishes take a while to prepare, Mary will have a few dishes cooked ahead of time for your meal. 

Your gourmet menu may include dishes such as an appetizer of Howth smoked salmon and dill tower with citrus avocado mousse and micro-herbs, a main of Irish chicken breast stuffed with mushrooms and parsley in a lime marmalade sauce served with creamed potatoes or pan-fried duck breast in Mary’s signature citrus-soy sauce served with green beans and glazed carrots, and a dessert of a raspberry pavlova or chocolate roulade with freshly whipped cream.

What to expect

Mary is a warm and wonderful host passionate about food and cooking. A local celebrity chef, Mary won a national competition on TV for the best amateur cook in the country! The eldest of three children, Mary stepped in as the cook at home and learned the basics very early. She could never say no to good food and that’s how she developed a keen interest in cooking. She became a cooking instructor at the Howth Castle cookery school where she taught until she recently retired.
