The Business of Pub Food – New to the Food Business

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.
This comprehensive course now includes one day cooking demonstrations at THE BALLYMALOE COOKERY SCHOOL to compile a simple top quality menu.
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.
