In Partnership with The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland.
There seems to be a general consensus that all pubs need to add food to their business or customers will stop coming through the doors. This is not strictly true as many quiet atmospheric pubs attest. However if you are thinking of adding food to your business and not sure if it is right or need to gain a clear understanding of what is involved, this is the course for you.
Learn how a kitchen works and how you can be in control of your own kitchen and food operation, even while a chef or cook heads it up. This course will take the mystery and stress out of your decision and help you take the right course of action for your pub.
6 days over 4 weeks
Autumn Dates will be posted later in Summer
9.00am - 5.00pm
