Kids Cookery Camp “LEARNING BY DOING” is the motto at the Forge restaurant summer cookery camps. Pauric White is a chef who is hugely dedicated to food education and the enjoyment of cooking, and his popular children’s cookery camps return as part of this year’s Boyne Valley Food series. The week’s classes consist of a wide variety of topics; baking , savoury dishes , cake decorating, meet the fish eat the fish , visit to sheridans cheese , pizza making, bread making, and lots and lots of fun!
Join Copper and Spices and Wine and Dine in the Dark. The customers do not see the food they are eating. The basic concept is that the removal of vision enhances the other senses and increases the gastronomic pleasure.
Customers are blindfolded and then served a multi-course menu using only food produced in the Boyne Valley paired with Wines Direct wines, while a representative from Wines Direct talks them through the food and wine. If finding your fork is proving too difficult, eating with your fingers is encouraged!
The Navan Tapas Trail. Eat and Drink your way around Navan. The Russell Restaurant
