Cookery Classes

It’s been an amazing learning experience moving my classes online and due to demand I’m going to continue to invite you into my kitchen via the wonders of technology on a monthly basis starting in October.

I’m going to experiment with a few in person classes as well , starting with my new Demo and Dine Supper Club on Friday 7th October. This class will be limited to 6 participants and you are invited to join me at the kitchen counter while I prepare a 3 course meal for you to enjoy – with a complementary glass of wine of course!

My annual Christmas cooking day is going ahead on Satrday 12th November – this is a busy but very enjoyable day with lots of cooking, food , chocolate and laughs. Places are limited and are selling out quickly!

And did you know you can occasionally find me over on Facebook doing a Live Cookalong featuring a different cookbook on Fridays ?

I look forward to seeing you all soon

Stay Safe and thank you for your support

In the good old days cookery classes in Hey Pesto! were demo style which have a habit of developing into social evenings! I cooked a number of dishes over 2 hours and then we all sat round the kitchen table and sampled the dishes, accompanied by a complementary glass of wine .
Now in the ‘new normal’ I’m inviting you into my kitchen to cook with me, and who knows , we may even share a virtual glass !

Please note, should a cookery class or demo not reach the required number of participants it may be postponed or cancelled. In such a situation, we will offer an alternative class for you to attend at a later date. Deposits must be paid upon booking, and are non-refundable, but are transferable to alternative dates, provided class spaces allow.

If you have any suggestions for classes please let me know – we are always interested in new ideas

Hey Pesto

One of the things I love most about Hey Pesto and Yvonne is how dedicated she is to using locally produced products whenever she can, she is a fantastic food ambassador for Offaly Food Producers, which along with her amazing skills at cooking makes for some delicious dishes, if you have an event that you need top quality food for and an extremely professional company then Hey Pesto is the only place to find it.
