I had there the best 3 months and it changed my perception and idea about food. The 12 week course helped me a-lot. Last year in May i took over the head chef position in Ballimagarvey Village, we won again this year Best Wedding Venue in Ireland , so I'm very proud. It was a huge effort from all the staff!

What our Students Say
What our students say
All I can say is that it has made me so much more aware of the seasons and the benefits of using good fresh seasonal produce and ingredients at all times. My knowledge of the industry has become more aware and I consider food and where it is from to a greater degree than I ever did before.
