Beef and Guinness Stew-square
Anne's Beef and Guinness Stew

We’ll start the night with a Hot Irish Whiskey, a recipe from her friend Anne. Anne and her husband Larry own Galway Goat Farm, a dairy that produces amazing goat’s cheese, yogurt, and goat milk (which is delicious, by the way!). We will braise meat (or mushrooms for vegetarians) for Anne’s Beef and Guinness Stew. We’ll fluff potatoes for Colcannon, one of the most beloved and traditional dishes celebrating the potato and cabbage. We will bake Imen McDonnell’s Irish Stout and Treacle (molasses) Bread. Imen, an American ex-pat now living on a dairy farm in the West of Ireland, is author of The Farmette Cookbook. And for our “pudding,” we will bake Lynda Booth’s (owner of The Dublin Cookery School, where Shelagh studied) Biddy’s Apple Cake with caramel sauce.

Many stories will be shared of Shelagh’s time in Ireland – she’ll transport you to the rolling green hills of the Irish countryside and her favorite Irish kitchen experiences. You can share your tales as well. It’s going to be a wonderful evening, full of good craic and feasting like the Celts of yore. There just might be some surprise guests, if we are lucky, like the Irish!

Let’s tuck in.

Private Cooking Class with Shelagh

Cooking at home has never been so fun! Get private 1:1 coaching with Shelagh ‘side by side’ yet cooking with you from the other side of the town (or across the country!). Virtually, just you and me.

How it works:

  1. Book a private class.
  2. We will have a phone chat, and agree on a time for your class. We will talk about what you want to learn (basics, knife skills, pantry items or a particular flavor profile like Italian, Moroccan, Indian etc. for more class ideas, click the tap above). Your choice, I’m here to help you with your conundrums.
  3. SheCooksDesign supplies you with recipes and a shopping list. We will both shop for the same ingredients*.
  4. We meet via FaceTime or Zoom at the agreed time, we don our aprons and get cooking together!

*sometimes the same items on your shopping list won’t be available at your local shop, I’ll be on hand if you need to call we need to make a substitution, no worries.

What you’ll need:

  • Stove-top/oven, possibly a grill (or grill-pan). Depending on the class
  • A comfortable spot to chop, rock and roll, hopefully near your stove-top
  • The ability to connect to Zoom conferencing with (preferrably) a laptop or tablet, but your smart phone will work
  • Time to reserve for relaxing and having some fun in the kitchen with me!
