From Sea to Plate: The Ultimate Fish Preparation Class at Killeavy Castle Estate

- Posted on: 28/07/2023 - $itemValue.title

Calling all foodies, food lovers, and aspiring chefs! If you have a passion for food and cooking and are interested in developing your skills in the kitchen, a cookery class at Killeavy Castle Estate is the perfect place to learn new skills, meet new people, and indulge in fantastic food.  

The first in a series of cookery classes at Killeavy Castle Estate, the Fish Preparation and Cooking Class will be led by our Executive Head Chef, Darragh Dooley, who will educate and inspire the class when it comes to cooking with fish.

With a wealth of experience spanning over two decades, Chef Dooley will share his experience with the class, demonstrating how to prepare and cook fresh fish by panfrying and poaching before making a delicious chowder and healthy sides to accompany fish dishes; the class will then be asked to recreate the dishes themselves with the supervision of expertise of Chef Dooley. 

The ingredients used to create the wholesome dishes cooked in this class will be sourced from our working farm at Killeavy Castle Estate and the best local seafood suppliers.  

The class will focus on fish preparation and cooking, a skill that many home cooks find challenging. Chef Dooley will demonstrate the techniques required to handle and prepare various types of fish for different dishes. From filleting to seasoning, participants will learn how to enhance the fish's natural flavours, creating dishes that are sure to impress at home.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Chef Dooley any questions they may have and learn new tips and tricks that will improve their culinary skills. Whether you're a passionate home cook or a total novice, this class is designed to accommodate all skill levels, encouraging guests to mingle, work together and have fun!

Spaces for this cooking class are limited, so be sure to secure your spot early to avoid disappointment. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.
