Private Lessons

Cooking with Ruth Wassell

Private or group lessons can be arranged.  Call me to discuss menus so that I can prepare a tailored lesson as a copy of the recipes will be available to take home.

I can hold these lessons in your home or in mine where I have a fully equipped demonstration kitchen. 

I have given some interesting lessons!

I had a request from two lovely Hawaiian ladies for an Irish cookery lesson.  They were in Dublin for a weekend and on the Sunday they came up to my house for a full three course lunch prepared in front of them and then we sat down to enjoy it. Imagine their suprise when they saw a photo of Duke Kahanamoku with my sons dad, there is a bronze statue of the Duke on Kuhio beach, Waikiki! He was an Olympic swimmer and famous surfer.  There is a chain of restaurants named after him in California and Hawaii called Duke's.

These classes have become popular with tourists wishing to experience a meal in an Irish home.  I have since had groups of Americans come for a 3 course Irish meal prepared in front of them.  They get to make their own soda bread too. After the meal they leave with a copy of the recipes prepared.  They can contine up to Johnny Foxes Irish pub or down to Dundrum town centre as I am located in Sandyford.  Recently I have prepared recipes from my friend Rachel Allens book and they leave with a copy of the book which allows them to prepare more recipes at home.

Most recently I had four men for a class as they wanted to prepare a three course meal for their wives. They really enjoyed it and left with lots of suggestions and tips. I hope they are still cooking for their wives!
