Our year round cookery calendar has a great choice of special and unique classes to suit all levels of skills and experience. Whether you are a novice chef or a more experienced cook we are sure to have a beginner cookery class or a more advanced class to suit.Thought by Daniel Koenig. Growing up in Asia, Africa and the United States I developed a great interest in the different food cultures and cooking from very early on. Later I embarked on classical chef training in Switzerland and worked in various five star hotels including the official hotel of the Swiss Government, the Bellevue Palace in Bern. After finishing a degree in Hotel Management at the Hotel Fachschule in Thun, Switzerland I spent a year as a chef in the Swiss Army. I then began a six year career for Seabourn Cruise Lines and were voted the world’s best cruise line and best food at sea each year during my time. I worked in a variety of positions within the kitchen, food service, and management specialty areas. My special interests are the history of food, food diversity and food cultures from around the world.Recently I worked with Catherine Fulvio on the TV series Lords and Ladles and I also own a company producing handmade chefs knives, cutting boards and interiors. I really love passing on my knowledge and passion of food and cooking. I am passionate about my role as a Ballyknocken Cookery Tutor and love to pass on all I know to the groups that come to visit us. I am a registered teacher with the Department of Education and FSAI
I have been teaching since 1992 and have taught in New York as well as Ireland.Some of my many career highlights would be cooking for the American President of the time Bill Clinton and the Irish President Mary Robinson, as well as catering for the Irish Government in Avondale House. I have also appeared on T.V. in America, Canada and Ireland. Video Created by VMIProductions.ie video Marketing Ireland
