Or fishing for trout on a tranquil glassy lough and then learning how to cook it to perfection in a high-tech kitchen. At a cookery school on the island of Ireland, anything is possible. Here, some of Ireland’s top chefs will pass on their culinary secrets in an environment that’s enjoyable, relaxing and scenic, as well as being informative and instructive.
