    Great barbecue course

    Hitting the summer season perfectly, we went to the Cooks Academy's barbecue course for my mates stag do in dublin.

    With just the right length of time, it was a quick overview of a few key recipes with tips and insight along the way into both charcoal and gas barbecue cooking.

    The group size was about 15 or so, and it allowed everyone to participate, general instruction to be given, while the two cooks guiding us were also able to give individual responses to queries we all had.

    Importantly, we got to eat everything that was cooked! Lovely hot dogs, beer can chicken, marinated smoked chicken pieces, perfect burgers and accompaniment as well (with a beer!).

    It was a really enjoyable evening, and priced just about right for what you were getting

    Great fun, good tips and information and nice people.
    I took the Tapas course as part of a stag do. The evening consists of a classroom type demonstration of preparation of the dishes, followed by practical opportunity to do them yourself. After you sit down and dine with a few glasses of wine.
