Tara Walker introduced invited guests to her Termonfeckin based ‘East Coast Cookery School’ by taking it on tour to Dublin for a night! Friends and foodies enjoyed a true taste of Tara’s cuisine this week in Medley, sampling a range of signature dishes and hearing about the recently expanded cookery school (www.eastcoastcookeryschool.ie), which offers a wide range of classes for all ages and aptitudes.
The East Coast Cookery School (formerly The Tasty Tart) is a purpose built cookery school and kitchen in Tara’s own very welcoming home in the countryside near Termonfeckin, Co. Louth. The area is a rich source of the finest of Irish produce, meat and seafood, which Tara is passionate about using in her cooking. The focus is not just on food, with fun being high on the list of ingredients for the success of Tara’s demonstrations and cookery classes.
Just 40 minutes from Dublin, and an hour from Belfast, the East Coast Cookery School is very accessible – and flexible too, regularly creating bespoke events for groups from hen parties to corporations seeking team-building exercises.
Tara was raised in the food business, coming from a family that ran successful hotels, pubs and cafes. Her love of food was reinforced in Paris while training at the Cordon Bleu, which together with a natural aptitude for business, makes running a cookery school the perfect outlet for her talents. Tara regularly delivers classes at An Grianan, the ICA headquarters as well as cooking live on TV3.
Upcoming classes at The East Coast Cookery School include ‘Casual Suppers for Friends’ €45pp for a 3 hour class tackling simple yet impressive starters, mains and desserts. Give your summer entertaining some attitude with ‘The Bad Ass BBQ’ €45pp – perfect meat and fish dishes with beer and wine, hopefully hosted al fresco. Making the most of the fabulously fresh seafood available locally, ‘Fish landed in Clogher Head’ €45pp features lots of different preparation and cookery methods for fish and shellfish. All these classes take place from 7pm to 10pm.
