Happy Christmas Everyone!

Update: Anne Neary of Ryeland House

Another Christmas is rapidly approaching and the start of a new year won't be far behind it. Everyone here at Ryeland House would like to wish our friends and students a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year. We would also like to thank everyone for their fantastic support over the last few years.

As you can see, we have posted a list of classes for the Spring and Summer of 2015, due to the popularity of last year's Cookery Camps we have decided to run 3, one week long, camps in July. We are also hosting a Head Chef/Junior Chef morning on March 15th so why not team up with a younger member of your family and show the world what you can do.

In order to help breakup the Christmas holidays, this year we will be running a New Year Cookery Camp for Kids. Details of the camp are available on our Day Classes page [click on the link in the menu to your left]. The total cost per child for each 2 day camp (Halloween Cookery Camp or the New Year Cookery Camp) is 65 euro and the cost includes insurance. Either of these camps would make fantastic Christmas presents, so why not get organised early and contribute to a Fuss Free Christmas. Classes are limited in size so if you would like your child to attend a particular camp with a friend or relation please book early.

Customised Classes & Hens: We have recently hosted some very enjoyable Hen Nights for ladies who were looking for something a little bit different. We would 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.
