January is holiday time at Frankly Cooking, its not that I enjoy holidays at this time of year but nobody seems to need our services just after Christmas, so we take it easy in January.

But night classes will get into full swing again on the first week of February, proposed locations being

Mondays - Knocknagree
Tuesdays- Macroom
Wednesdays - Meelin
Thursdays - Millstreet or Beara

Post Christmas classes are 4 week, 2 hours 30 mins per night and the theme is budget cooking.

We are also now booking charity cookery demonstrations nationwide for March/April/May.  Are you involved in organising a festival or local carnival in 2012?  If so, what about a night of gourmet cooking as part of the programme, and a fundraiser to boot.

Contact me for details.

The night class season is fast approaching and in fact enrolments are taking place in four centres – Foynes on Monday 3rd October, Macroom on Tuesday 4th, Caheragh on Wednesday 5th and Millstreet on Thusday 6th, all at 8 pm.  It is important if you intend to attend any of these classes that you give your name and phone number on the night, as classes that don’t fill, will not proceed.

I still have some vacant pre-Christmas dates for one night demonstrations, “Tastes of Christmas”.  I would be delighted to fill you in on details – call me.

2012 – I return to night classes and demonstrations in early February but take January off because of bad weather and post-Christmas blues.
