St Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh visit Cloughjordan Cookery School

Our Transition Year students are taking part in “The Future is Food: Engaging Young Food Entrepreneurs programme” developed by the Taste Council in collaboration with Bord Bia. The Future is Food helps students to gain a better understanding of the Irish artisan food sector, as well as the wider food industry.


To support this programme the students visited Cloughjordan Cookery School recently. While there each student visited the fruit and vegetable gardens where they learned about various herbs and other crops and saw how produce is grown organically. They also collected ingredients for the kitchen. Later students prepared food using this produce. Here students learned some valuable food preparation skills including how to make yeast bread.  

A very important part of the day involved sitting down to all the lovely food we had harvested and prepared. It was a very enjoyable, informative and relaxing day for everyone.
