Cooking with enjoyment

Rita Meade's Cookery School

"Serve fresh young food and mature drink" is an old Irish proverb that is reflected in our cookery courses:

Private Courses
We offer tailor made individual short courses and private lessons. Read more about our short courses on the next page

Weekend Courses
The main recipe will have you using mussels and salmon, mint and sorrel, duck and lamb, buttermilk and cheeses, and a dash of Guinness, Mist and Mead to enhance the flavours. We deliberately keep our numbers to ten and under so that you our guests will gain maximum benefit from the tuition in the relaxed traditional homely atmosphere of Berry Lodge. Courses are designed to suit all levels. The only criteria is a love of learning and a desire to get some cookery knowledge
Cost: from 80 Euro - see individual course outline
