I would highly recommend #MCS to anybody. We attended the Asian cookery class. Kamalika was very welcoming and laid back. She gave detailed explanations and demonstrations and delivered it all with a good sense of humour. Dan was also very helpful and happily answered any questions! It was a lovely experience with beautiful dishes created!! will definitely be back.

  • I recently attended a Thai Cuisine demonstration class. The food was delicious, very authentic, fresh and fragrant. The recipes were simple and easy to follow with all ingredients available locally. Kamalika was very engaging and provided useful tips and alternative ingredients.

    Had a fab evening with welcoming hosts Dan & Karmalika at the greek & middle eastern food demo?..Karmalika is an amazing cook & teacher. The receipes are so easy to follow, promoting healthy eating by using superfoods & organic ingredients and locally produced foods sourced from nearby Collinstown Farmers Market.

    Just enjoyed a FAB cookery class learning how to make sushi, teriyaki and tempura with Multyfarnham Cookery School, from the comfort of my own kitchen! I had received a gift voucher, and it was the best gift idea for someone who likes to cook. I could choose the course hat appealed to me from their course calendar, and attended Japanese Cookery......Kamalika is a skilled and patient teacher, and explains everything clearly enough for even total beginners. Also I could see everything perfectly - maybe even better than you would see attending an in-person class, as there were multiple camera angles which we could see the food prep and cooking on. This was livestreamed on Zoom (not pre-recorded) so people could ask questions as she went along. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to cook, or wishes they were better at it!

  • Just did the online cookery demonstration with Kamilika on Thursday evening. Very enjoyable and interacting class. Communication was excellent, being provided with list of ingredients beforehand so we could be prepared to cook along or do it later. Meals turned out delicious so will certainly do another class! Very enjoyable evening.

    positive review I highly recommend Multyfarnham Cookery School. I did zoom class on dinner party food last night Kamalika gave very clear instructions and she was very patient with those who were cooking along with her. I just cooked the blinis dish in class. I found it relaxing to just listen and take notes. I cooked the stuffed pork fillet today for dinner and it was really tasty. It was my first time to do this and thanks for the wonderful experience

    Did the "taste of Asia" zoom class. The sound and quality of the picture was a bit low at times but the content was very good. Enjoyed the cooking experience even though it was a bit crazy at times. The food was delicious and I will be using the recipes again. Loved the tips about the different ingredients as well.Will definitely do another class.

  • positive review I had an amazing class this evening with Multyfarnham Cookery School, we did a Japanese class which consisted of making miso soup with smoked tofu, salmon in teriyaki sauce and sushi! Would highly recommend attending these classes they are fun and inspire new flavoursome recipes to keep the kitchen alive.

  • I completed the Vegetarian/Vegan cookery course and it was very enjoyable and informative. It was a lovely way to spend an evening during lockdown as I could join in for as many or as little recipes as I liked so I decided how busy I wanted to be during it. The ingredients and recipes were sent out in good time and the instructions throughout were easy to follow. I would definitely recommend taking an online course with this cookery course.

  • Hi Kamalika, thank you so much for a great online cookery evening. It was so well done, I enjoyed watching you work magic in your kitchen as always and definitely enjoyed learning how to cook traditional Sri Lankan food. The way you presented your class was excellent, clear and lots of information. Congratulations to you! Looking forward to your next online class now!!! ???

    I decided to do the online Asian Cookery Class with MCS last Friday after i had heard brilliant reviews about the Cookery School and my daughter had really enjoyed the Easter Teenage camp. I really enjoyed the online experience and it was very interactive as Kamalika explained each step along the way and we had plenty of time to ask questions. Fantastic Recipes and i will definitely be signing up to do another online course.

  • I did MCS online Asian cookery class and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Yes I did miss sitting and watching Kamalika cooking away and then sampling what she cooked but this was a different experience. Kamalika sent me the recipes in advance and I had all the ingredients prepared. I followed along as she cooked. Kamalika checked in with me as she went along and I asked any questions that came up. The final product smelled and tasted amazing. My family gave it the thumbs up by gobbling it down. I would definitely recommend anybody giving this new way of online cooking a go... it brings out the ‘inner cook’ in you!

  • What a fantastic evening we had with Kamalika and Dan, we learnt loads (thanks for all those great little everyday tips), had fun and ate 6 different fish dishes! What's really good is that the ingredients for the easy-to-follow recipes are mostly things you will have anyway, and Kamalika is happy to direct you to exactly where you'll find anything you might not yet have. There was a super relaxed atmosphere while still keeping all Covid measures in place. We're looking at what to do next and this time, we'll remember the wine!

    We had a fantastic evening at the Italian night. Very safe with COVID, everything in place regarding same. Food demonstration was amazing. Very generous with offering out food to try. Nothing was a problem if you had questions. Went out of their way to accommodate anyone in any way. They were also very entertaining and you could listen to both of them all night. Warm friendly feeling to the night. 12 attended. Super fun. Highly recommend.

  • Would definitely recommend doing a cooking class with Multyfarnham! Myself and my mum did a class recently and we both really enjoyed it! Kamalika was super friendly, knew a lot about food and is also extremely passionate about what she does. Myself and my mum will definitely be back and we think from the way we've raved about it to friends and family, we wont be alone!

  • I was with a hen party for a cookery Demonstration and meal party in MCS early this year and I never enjoyed an evening as much, we arrived into this fantastic setting in Multyfarnham and from start to finish Kamalika was so entertaining and descriptive as she demonstrated beautiful Italian cuisine, the room was huge and tables laid for our 30 something group, we are coming back soon for another night and look forward to it, highly recommend this place! Kamalika and Dan and staff were the perfect hosts so well done to all !

  • positive review I highly recommend the summer cooking camp! My 5 year old son was apprehensive the first day due to the effects of lockdown, and the staff were wonderful in dealing with him... he came out all smiles at the end of the first day. He was so excited to tell us about the cottage pie that he made and got to eat, explained to us what needed to be done to make it, as well as how much fun he had making the dessert. He proudly brought home the recipes as well. He ran in the door the next day excited to cook all over again. Kamalika and her staff are phenomenal at working with these young people and they take every precaution possible regarding COVID. Sanitizers and soap were visibly available to participants and documents were all in order. I am well impressed with the organisation and will definitely be sending my son back for another camp in the future - or maybe attend a class myself!

    Many thanks for a fabulous day ?

Meet Your Instructor

After years cooking in fine dining restaurants and five-star hotels,  I decided to give people the same experiences I’ve been lucky to have with food and cooking.

I love to inspire people to learn to cook, whether for the first time or to get back into it, and Multyfarnham Cookery School is where I do it.

I believe there is no perfect age to start cooking, we teach people from 5 to 85!

If you have bad memories of your Cooking skils, don't worry!
