Transition year is a time of learning skills outside the classroom.

In this week long cookery course specially created for transition year students, they will learn a great selection of recipes that can be used at home.  


What will happen?

Students will learn a variety of skills and cover a range of topics both in demonstration and Hands-On sessions.

In one busy week, students will learn how to make homemade bread, jam, soups, yummy starters, main courses, desserts, biscuits and even a cake or two plus how to make butter and yoghurt from our own Jersey cow’s milk and cream.

Students will also have a guided educational tour around our organic farm, gardens and greenhouse. They will also have the opportunity to learn about the hens, pigs, chickens and livestock and herb and wild food garden on the Organic farm.

Each student will receive a Ballymaloe Cookery School apron. 


The week will be guided by our expert tutors and you will come away with a repetoire of recipes that you can use at home to cook for yourself or friends and family.

We do not have accommodation available at the cookery school for this course (unless accompanied by an Adult) but there is plenty of nearby accommodation.

This course is subsidised by Ballymaloe Cookery School.
