  • Chinese Banquet (Demo and some hands-on)

    Chinese food for me growing up in Dublin was very exotic. I’ll never forget those first experiences of different flavours and falling in love with my first taste of an Asian food. Of course, now I have been exposed to plenty of different types of Asian cuisines and I love them all, however, now I feel I’d like to honour my first experience by presenting my Chinese Banquet.

    With dishes such as double baked cheese souffle pancakes, vegetable schnitzel, ballotine rolls with balsamic reduction and a sensational dessert – this is the class for you.

  • Middle Eastern Work Shop (fully hands-on)

    Middle Eastern food is a regular at our house loved by adults and kids alike. I have been asked so many times for the Djaj a riz recipe (see photo) so I have finally built a delicious banquet around this great looking, great tasting dish.

    In this 3 hour, fully hands on workshop, you’ll be making Djaj a riz, spiced chicken wings with toum, tabouli with a twist, Bulgar pie with caramelised onions and walnuts, spinach salad with pickled red onions and pine nuts, halva ice cream and more.

Don’t worry if you don’t have (or are not thinking of getting) your own oven, pizza stones in a regular oven work really well too. My hubby, Gav will be lighting the oven and doing the cooking, and I’ll be doing the rest!!

    “What will I make for dinner?”

    In this class I’ll be running through some of our family favourites that will satisfy everyone.

  • The Versatile Vegetarian

    You don’t have to be vegetarian to eat vegetarian food. Health experts say that you should eat at least one vegetarian meal a week.

    Vegetarian does NOT mean lettuce leaves and celery sticks.
    In this class, Mish will be showing you how to prepare interesting and delicious dishes that will have your meat-loving friends coming back for more.


  • Cooking for Kids

    What’s for dinner Mum?

    How often have we all heard that?
    Not all kids are angels when it comes to eating and after cooking in child care centres for over 5 years, Mish has a strong idea of what kids love. These healthy meals and snacks will keep any kid satisfied.

  • Glorious Gluten Free

    Gluten free food is no longer the odd tastes and textures of the past!

    Mish will show you that gluten free cooking is simple and delicious. Mish will share her recipes that are even better than regular gluten dishes.

    Mish’s daughter Dara, aged 9, has been gluten intolerant for 2 years.
    Dara often says “Mum, this is the best dinner ever”!

  • Weaning your baby onto Solids (Great for new Mothers Groups)

    Not all babies take to solids like a duck to water. Sometimes it’s trial and error and sometimes it’s a little bit of pot luck. I’d like to be able to teach new mums lots of tricks and great ideas in getting your baby onto solids and hopefully creating a non-fussy eater. You will be in the comfort of my home (with or without your baby). It will be relaxed and informal, and a good chance to ask questions about weaning or just food in general.
