Brunch - the word alone evokes lie-ins and Sunday papers, the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the anticipation of relaxed socialising and gentle indulgence. Yet, mastering some of the skills that go into making a good brunch great can be off-putting even for confident cooks.
This half-day course is designed to give you all the secrets into creating perfectly prepared dishes, including all the technical flourishes to make your brunch worthy of any professional kitchen. Taking inspiration from Ballymaloe Cookery School founder Darina Allen’s extensive travels, we will guide you through some of the finest brunch dishes from around the world, and how to deliver them flawlessly. Whether it’s to entertain family and friends or to develop a brunch menu within your own food business, this course gives you all the tools you need.
What you get:
• A tour of our organic farm, gardens, dairy and greenhouses
• Hands-on demonstration in how to prepare ten of our favourite seasonal brunch recipes, from mouthwatering dishes from France, Mexico, America, India, Sri Lanka and the Middle East
• A guide to sourcing the best ingredients for the best results
• Tips in forward planning and saving time
• Professional secrets to presentation
