Happy Birthday Cooks Academy

Have you all your Christmas presents bought, wrapped and waiting to be distributed?  No?  Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to get sorted.  I particularly love when I can buy a gift online while still supporting an Irish business. I’m not lazy, but I hate crowds and the lunacy of carparks in the run-up to Christmas, so here’s an idea for you foodies who feel the same.

Cooks Academy on South William St in Dublin recently celebrated their 10th birthday and I was delighted to be invited to the Printcelebrations at their 4500 sq ft city centre premises last week.  It wasn’t my first time to visit Cooks Academy who have more than forty short cookery courses on offer at the moment.  With not much spare time,  I love that I can dedicate two and a half hours to a short course and come away with more confidence and skill in the kitchen.  You can choose morning, afternoon or evening for a short course and the usual cost is €60-€70.


And here’s the good news.

The nice people at Cooks Academy are offering my readers a 20% discount on all short courses booked with them before March 31st 2015 (you are not obliged to use your voucher before March 31st 2015 though, which is great).

To avail of this discount, use the following code when making an online booking or quote the code over the phone when booking.

Cranberry Scones with Clotted Cream and Berry Coulis

So for the foodie in your life, why not give them a delicious gift for Christmas?  There are so many short courses to choose from: breads, pizzas, sushi, macaroons, gluten free – there’s a course for everyone.

Now I’m off to finish decorating the tree but I’ll be back soon with some Christmas canapé suggestions..
