Alix Gardner's Cookery School on Waterloo Road, Dublin, is now enrolling for spring cookery classes.

The cookery school is talking bookings for a rolling programme of classes which begins on Monday, February 24.

Alix commented: “There’s something for everyone at my new Spring season of evening cookery classes, whether you’re an absolute beginner looking to learn the basic basics or you wish to become a more confident and adaptable cook.  And for the more adventurous, there’s a choice of food from around the world.

“I’ve designed the programme to reflect a wide level of food tastes and cooking competence. And it may sound like a cliché but the most important ingredient at my classes is fun.  I’m serious about teaching the very best that food has to offer but it’s done in the relaxed, informal atmosphere of my country style kitchen in the heart of Ballsbridge, Dublin.

“What’s more, it’s a practical hands on experience – there’s none of this observing from afar business – I want people to engage directly with the food preparation and cooking experience.” Ingredients are supplied and everyone gets to take home what they’ve cooked on the night - typically up to three dishes."
