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 COOKERY CLASS @ COOKERY COTTAGE 2021

 

We having been hosting Zoom Cooking Class over the past few months and it has been going brilliant. The customers love it as it vey convenient and offers the same benefits that our in house classes provide and we would strongly urge anyone who is bored in lockdown and wants to improve or learn cooking skills to participate in the online classes.

 

Now how we do this class is a few steps

  • We need to do a trial run with you to make sure we are up and going , we use the Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/meetings we would need to make sure everybody is signed and its free.
  • One week before we will sent over recipe,  ingredients and equipment needed for the class, so they have time to get it all organized you staff. Aldis, Lidls,  has most of the stuff. Cheap and cheerful
  • On the day we will ask for everyone to put their audio and camera’s on. You will have some shy guests. Once everyone is booked in, we can  get the class started.
  • Now the class is demo and take part, your staff can choose what  are comfortable to do with the recipes. It’s all fun and a good laugh, at the end of the class we will ask for your staff to show off what they have made. If you want we could judge and pick a winner
  • Before the class there could be some stuff that need to be done, like maybe chop onion. peel the garlic just the class is smoother. 
  • I would recommend the Mexican on the 1st night, its fresh and tasty recipes.
  • The class is 1-1 ¼ hours depends how many guests you have,
  • 10-25 guest €250. 00 or 25-50 guest €300.00,  
  • Mexican: Guacamole, Salsa Criolla, Pico de Gallo, Mexican rice with beans, Beef Quesadillas, Chicken Tacos
  • Indian: Kerala Curry powder, plain boiled rice, spiced lentils with chickpeas and potatoes.

DROP IN ADULT COOKING CLASSES ARE RE-OPENDED foHERE ARE THE CURRENT CLASSES 2021

Keto (Ketogenic Diet) Cooking Class , Wednesdays

6th Oct : 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.
