Darina asked me to get the word out about some special transition year courses they’ve added at Ballymaloe.

The demand for places on our Transition Year Work Experience Program in recent years has been very high, and they are now fully subscribed until September 2014. They have therefore decided to offer a few, One Week Transition Year Cookery Courses before Easter 2013.

The following dates are available:

The courses are held daily from 10am to 5pm and are limited to six students per course. The fee is €500 per student, payable upon booking. Members of Slow Food will receive a 10% discount!

Students will learn a variety of skills and cover a range of topics both in demonstration and Hands-On sessions. In one busy week, students will learn how to make homemade bread, jam, soups, yummy starters, main courses, desserts, biscuits and even a cake or two plus how to make butter and yoghurt from our own Jersey cows’ milk and cream. Students will also be given a guided educational tour around our organic farm, gardens and greenhouse. Each student will receive a Ballymaloe Cookery School apron and a signed cookbook and will be offered first choice on their waiting list for the 2012/13 Transition Year.

To book click the links above or phone the office 021 4646785. Booking will be taken on a first come first served basis.  Full payment will be required on booking.

Accommodation is not available at the cookery school for this course, although accommodation is available locally; a list of local B&Bs and Guesthouses available at www.cookingisfun.ie.
