About The Cookery Cottage

The Cookery Cottage is for kids and adults. At the cookery cottage we offer healthy foods, local produce, meat and fish. We try to stay as local as we can with our food and products. We teach kids the basics on food, how to chop, cook and bake. They just love it. We offer different recipes for different age groups. We do new recipes for each season depending on the produce available.

We offer kid’s birthday parties, kid’s weekly cooking classes and teenager’s weekly cooking classes. In the near future we will be offering teenagers & parent classes, toddler & mommy classes and we also hope to have some schools join us for morning classes.

Keto (Ketogenic Diet) Cooking Class , Wednesdays

Wednesday Jan 12th 2022,  2 week course 7-8:30pm /  €59.00 / Advanced class; covering breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

Some background info: The chef/cooking instructor has worked at Cookery Cottage for over 8 years. He has been on the Keto diet for over one year and has lost over eight stone. His goal is to teach people how to live and eat healthy on the Keto diet.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into metabolic state called Ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which supply energy for the brain. Keto diet can cause massive reduction in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has numerous health benefits

We cover quite a few recipes, all ingredients and recipes are included in the class. 

The benefits are weight loss, clear skin, improves hearth health, brain function, potentially reduces seizers and a lot more.
