Summer Salads & Berries – Plot To Plate Demo & Dine
Hosted by Chef Fiona Egan & Horticulturist Fiona McCormack
21st July 2022 11am- 3pm
Join horticulturist Fiona McCormack and myself for a wonderful morning & afternoon demonstration of cooking, baking and summer gardening.
Your day will begin in the kitchen where I’ll be demonstrating some delicious seasonal salads and lunch ideas plus tempting sinful berry desserts and bakes.
Next you’ll join horticulturist Fiona McCormack in our kitchen garden & orchard for tips on sowing and growing your own berry bushes and salads suitable for your barbeque or summer entertaining.
When you return from the garden you’ll enjoy the fruits of my labour that I’ll have prepared earlier in my demonstration
We hope between the 2 of us you’ll enjoy a relaxing day of delicious foods, while learning a little of how to sow grow and cook all of which can be recreated at home in your own kitchens & gardens or even a your flower beds.

Due to the rise in coronavirus we have taken the decision not to go ahead with the remaining hands on and demonstration cookery, baking and craft classes at Cloughan Farm for the rest of 2021 and in to 2022
Government has not asked or advised us but we feel at this stage it is the right thing to do for our hospitals & emergency departments and their staff & just as importantly, their families and ours.
All our classes were fully booked with many attendees traveling across the country to join us for our workshops. Our classes and workshops were running from 4-7 hours and we fell this would only have added to the escalating situation in the run up to Christmas.
