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.

Virtual Classes

We are now taking booking for Zoom classes. This is a new and fun way to get together with colleagues or friends without needing to travel. This is particularly great for groups as it can be done from anywhere around the world. Participants can cook along with us, ask questions and we can even judge the best dish at the end. This has been particularly popular for corporate groups and family get-togethers. Participants will be provided with a list of equipment and ingredients to have ready prior to the class along with step-by-step recipes incase they fall behind or miss part of the class for whatever reason. We aim to keep the cost of ingredients below €10pp and can pitch the recipes to all levels. Some classes we have done so far are:

Italian – pizza, garlic bread, creamy bacon and mushroom sauce with cupcakes for dessert

Indian – Korma and naan bread

Baking class – cupcakes, rocky road and no bake oreo cakes

Christmas Baking: Sugar Cookies and minced pies

Christmas Dinner with all the sides

If you are interested in organising a virtual class, please give us a call on 021-4365083 and we can discuss the level of difficulty and recipes as all our classes are tailored to suit the participants.

Here at the Cookery Cottage, we will be opening a Keto Cooking Class.

 The chef   cooking instructor has worked at Cookery Cottage for over 8 years. He has been on the Keto diet over one year and have 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.
