Last year Paul Flynn and Michael Quinn have announced they will once again run the extremely popular, Three-Day Intensive Course at The Tannery Cookery School. This course is definitely not designed for beginners, but for proficient cooks who want to be challenged, inspired and taught some of the secrets of a restaurant kitchen which can be adapted to home.
It’s also a great starting point for those who are thinking of opening a small café, or those who might want to take their cooking out of the home kitchen and into a more commercial area.
Running from September 14 to September 16 in The Tannery Cookery School this year, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, this course will bring a group of no more than 14 students – very interested and competent home cooks – through a well-honed mix of practical and demo sessions put together by two chefs with an almost scary 50 years experience of professional kitchens between them, Paul Flynn and Michael Quinn.
Paul opened The Tannery Restaurant in his home town of Dungarvan in 1997, followed by The Tannery Townhouse in 2005, and then the chic, naturally-lit Tannery Cookery School, custom-designed by himself and Máire, in 2008. Paul’s dishes are known and loved for their deep earthy flavours and for his menus that give nothing away in their simplicity yet are packed with hugely exciting tastes.
Having trained and worked in Ballymaloe Cookery School before opening his own award-winning restaurant, Opus One, and then spending 15 years behind the stove at Waterford Castle, Michael Quinn’s philosophy of food is simple. Take fresh, organic, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients and cook them simply to retain the true taste. Michael lectures in Culinary Arts in Waterford Institute of Technology and is an active member of the Slow Food movement of Ireland.
Both Paul and Michael are passionate about sharing their wealth of knowledge and inspiring students in the kitchen, and both are excellent communicators and great teachers, full of down-to-earth advice and encouragement.
The Tannery Cookery School three-day intensive course proved very popular last year and the course costs €550 per person, running fromSeptember 14 to September 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, with special accommodation rates also available in The Tannery Townhouse for course attendees.
