Modelled on our hugely popular 12 Week Certificate Course, this course is for those who may not have the time to attend our 12 Week Course but still want an immersive experience of learning to cook at Ballymaloe Cookery School.
This five week cookery school is designed to give you a really good grounding in cooking and baking. We will cover a wide range of subjects, styles and techniques so you feel confident and adept in the kitchen. The course will leave you with an extensive repertoire with everything from the tradional and classic to the current hottest trends.
Students will also get to spend time in the farm dairy, glasshouse, fermentory and bakery to explore all areas of the food industry and learn about the importance of seasonal and ethically produced food.
Things you'll learn
The prestigious Ballymaloe 12 WeekCertificate Course is run three times a year, with courses beginning in January,April or May, and September.
The course is aimed at anyone with a passionate interest in food. Many of our students use the course as a springboard to become a professional chef; others use it to equip themselves with a marketable skill.
Others still take the course simply to maximize the pleasure they get from cooking at home.
Students develop a deep and detailed understanding of food and how it is produced. The emphasis is on recognising the best ingredients and knowing how to showcase them.
