Summer has finally arrived (sort of!)

Update: Anne Neary of Ryeland House

The days are long and warm enough to eat outside now and again, one of the real pleasures of summer. A great way to spend some time with family and friends. Anne won't be spending her summer break lounging around her garden, she is undertaking an intensive, week long cookery course with Kenneth, a Malaysian cookery teacher during which they will swap recipes and cooking techniques and hope to produce some amazing dishes. Anne will be running a unique one day class based on her experiences on Saturday 14th of November. Definitly a date for your diary and not to be missed!

Due to hugh demand we will be running two seperate cookery bootcamps in October, one for 9 to 12 year olds and one for teenagers aged between 13 and 15 years old. The cookery camps costs 65 euro per child/teenager in total and includes insurance. Places usually go quickly so early booking is advised in order to avoid disappointment.

Customised Classes & Hens: We have recently hosted some very enjoyable Hen Nights for ladies who were looking for something a little bit different. Hen partys can be booked for evening or day times and range from full cookery classes to hands-on scone and bread making sessions.

We would also like to remind you that Ryeland House caters for groups of people who might like to book a customised class for themselves and their friends as an alternative evening out. Anne will devise a special class based on your requests and you can also bring your own wine.

As well as running her popular classes at Ryeland House Anne is also the author of two cook books. There is a review her book "Food for Sharing" by Conor Kane in the Irish Examiner (Friday 7th Oct 2011) and you can read it here. Gift vouchers are available from here.

Information:  Don't forget that Anne's radio production "The Cookery Slot" goes out at 11.30 am every Thursday morning during the Sue Nunn show "On the Record". During the show Anne has lots of tips and help for listeners and you can find some of Anne's fabulous Ryeland House Cookery School recipes here on the radio station's website.

Anne has also worked with various schools and colleges to develop and deliver cookery courses that combine the theory of cooking with a very strong practical element. In all her work, Anne's focus has been on the creation of great tasting, wholesome food made with the best possible local ingredients. Throughout her career Anne has been a very strong advocate for local Artisan food producers and has strived to pass this passion on to her students. She feels that cooking is an activity that should be enjoyed and Anne has a fresh, fun approach to her classes.
