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 with Rory O'Connell of The Ballymaloe Cookery School to help 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.
'It pays for itself multiple times over, due to the knowledge gained from the course' Francis Galvin, Proprietor, Gally's Bar & Restaurant, Tralee, Co. Kerry.
