What a wonderful place, not far from Dublin. Catherine is fantastic, and has those smiling Irish eyes. We were there only for a quick class of scone baking. We had to eat the tasty scones with rhubarb & ginger jam and a cup a tea in the end. OMG!!! There is also a B&B on the property. Thank you Catherine... More

Thank you Catherine for showing us from two globus buses how to make scones this morning, it was wonderful as we sampled some afterwards. A great experience, so if you get a chance, make an appointment with this celebrity chef and nice lady. Cheers Mark

Advice stick with Catherine when you're cooking. Our chap kept disappearing! We cooked our own lunch and overall not a bad mornings work. Expensive course.

Wow, what an amazing place! Catherine Fulvio is a little firecracker, so full of life and friendly. They put on an entire Irish fair for our business reward trip, @ 180 of us! Complete with how to make the best Irish Whiskeys, clay pigeon shooting, archery, driving in the hills, sheep herding, scone making, falconry, Irish dancing and more! So... More

i went with a group of approximately 24-30 people (it was a business reward trip) so we had our own private class with Catherine Fulvio. She is so friendly, welcoming and very down to earth. Her warm smile is so genuine that you feel like you are hanging out with a friend. She is not pretentious or stuffy but sweet... More

Went on a day when we learned southern Italian cuisine. It was an ambitious menu, but well thought out in the already prepped items. I learned to roll pasta for the first time & it was delicious. Loved sitting at the table & sharing the food we made along with some wine with everyone that was there. Catherine Fulvio is... More

Myself and my teenage daughter took part in the 7 meals for 7 days class this weekend. From start to finish the Ballyknocken Cookery School were very professional and very friendly too. We had initially hoped to book a class with Catherine as we are both big fans if her cooking however, we had left it too late on this... More

My daughter Kim and I booked a cookery session with Catherine and we were delighted to have had the added benefit of having Paul Smith as the other instructor. Both were excellent trainers with exceptional people skills and a friendly encouraging approach when supporting us through each step of the menu, it was a positive learning experience in a interactive...

The cookery class was full of information, fun & really good food. Kathryn & Paul were amazing teachers and loads of fun. My sister is a beginner at cooking & I'm moderately experienced but the class was great for all of us. The trip thru the garden is not to be missed!

Apprehensive at first. Working with a group of people I didn't know. Being instructed by a chef I'd only seen on TV. But the result was a great experience I hope to repeat soon. Catherine is wonderful at motivating and the shared experience of eating what we had created was excellent. I'd recommend it to anyone, man or woman, experienced... More
