Our cookery school, visible through a large glass window separating the shop and the kitchen will allow our guests sample life in a working kitchen and whether you are a beginner wanting to learn new skills or a confident cook looking for inspiration, our tutors will offer a wide range of full-day, half-day and evening courses for every level.
We are delighted to welcome Chef Kevin O’Toole for a residency of cookery workshops here at Firecastle.
Formerly Chef Patron of the beloved and late-lamented Chameleon Restaurant in Temple Bar, Kevin garnered numerous awards during his long tenure. In 2019 he was named Chef of the Year by Mckenna’s Guides. In addition to being lauded as Best World Cuisine in 2013, The Chameleon was listed in the Best 100 restaurants in Ireland for six consecutive years. He holds an MSc in Culinary Nutrition, is deeply passionate about food education and is currently passing on his expertise to a new generation of apprentice chefs in Crumlin College.
These cookery lessons will be fun, informative, and relaxed. The only homework will be dinner!
