A professional certified Cookery Course at Dublin Cookery School for aspiring chefs.
Lynda Booth’s Dublin Cookery School is based in state-of-the-art facilities in Blackrock. The school was named ‘Best Cookery School in Ireland’ in 2013 & 2015 at the Irish Restaurant Awards.
The school’s professional full-time Three Month Certificate course is the only one of its kind on offer in Dublin and is widely recognised as a credible and practical route to acquiring the expertise and skills needed to pursue a career in the food industry.
As part of the course, students participate in three of the school’s pop-up restaurant nights, playing a key role in helping to prepare and cook a five-course tasting menu for up to seventy paying diners. Three month students also enjoy field trips and meet Irish food producers, industry experts in wine and cheese, food business advisors and health & safety professionals. All students that complete the course gain a HACCP food safety qualification.
During the course, you will also be given the opportunity to work in a professional kitchen by going on a ‘stage’ placement for a week to one of Dublin’s best restaurants. Previous placements have included the likes of Chapter One, L’Ecrivain, The Greenhouse, Bastible, Forest Avenue, Dax, The Pig’s Ear, Cleaver East, Ananda, Restaurant Forty One, Etto and One Pico.
Past graduates of this course have worked in some of Ireland’s top restaurants. Others have opened their own food businesses or have used their new found skills to pursue a new life overseas, working on yachts and in ski chalets.
They also offer a free trial course (Evening or One Day) to any student interested in signing up to the course to give you the chance to experience our facilities, recipes and teaching approach.
