Lady Eve Cookery

Tune in to the Today show rte1 3rd February 2015.  I'll be baking and creating!

Ballymaloe trained Nikki Walsh aka Lady Eve, vision, was to run a cookery school so she could deliver and teach essential cooking techniques with ease and confidence.  The classes are designed to cover every aspect of cooking.  Almost without realizing it, the students cover a wide range of both skilled and simple cooking.  Lady Eve and her small great team run a series of classes throughout the year catering for all needs.

Nikki spent a year in Ballymaloe, she did the 12 week certificate course and stayed working in the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork City (owned by the Allens) and afterwards in the main house in Ballymaloe as pastry chef. Nikki then returned to Dublin and worked in a number of restaurants and catering companies.

Nikki got distracted from the food world and worked in the family pharmacy business for a number of years. She exited the Pharmacy in 2011 and pursued her true passion - food.  In a nutshell, Nikki's utter passion is teaching how to cook delicious food, with the maximum of  taste in a cost effective and simple manner.

There is no such thing as waste in Lady Eve's kitchen!  Lady Eve is fast becoming known as 'The Frugal Chef'.   Nikki uses every morsel of food, in some form or another.  It is her ethos to use everything, leaving no room for waste whatsoever.  For example she recycles the plastic bags from cereal boxes, lemon and orange peel  are dried and used for kindling, Nikki freezing everything and anything possible.  If you don't thing it will freeze, it will!   Nikki has numerous tips about what to do with everything in your kitchen.  As we all know necessity is the mother of invention and this is how the Lady Eve brigade lives, breathes and teaches.   We would love you to come to a class as seeing is believing!

A wed­ding, a grad­u­a­tion, a big bash!, family food, technical food, a communion, a confirmation, a busi­ness event.  What­ev­er the occasion Lady Eve Cookery has the solution.  Her teaching methods are simple, clear, to the point and memorable. We all want to be in the pres­ence of great food, good wine and close friends. Lady Eve delivers her teaching method so well.  She teaches with ease and comfort, in a way that’s un­for­get­table.
