Ballymaloe trained, Sarah spent her early cooking years working in an organic restaurant in Co. Wicklow and as a private chef for both well known personalities and embassies alike. Another four years at No. 10 Ormonde Quay, a private house and venue in Dublin gave her great bespoke catering experience and insight. Sarah has also cooked and taught at other city centre venues & rustic style café /brunch eateries around town, rounding out her experience of both top end cooking and the more informal approach to food.
With us for 6 years, Sarah is renowned for her professional yet relaxed teaching approach. Having grown up by the sea, her inherent love of seafood and natural affinity for teaching, makes her a strong part of our team here in Howth Castle.
A recent 3 month trip through France, Italy and Greece last year re-invigorated her love of both Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food and has given many of our classes on this year’s upcoming schedule a new impetus and modern twist.
