“I meet so many talented and interested cooks at demonstrations all around the country and I have always wished to spend that little bit more time helping them to get to the next stage. From my early days in Fermanagh College I have always enjoyed teaching and love being able to spend time with people who are as passionate about food as I am at the Neven Maguire Cookery School.”
– Neven Maguire
Award-winning chef Neven Maguire fulfilled a long-held dream to open his first cookery school in 2014. The Neven Maguire Cookery School is located beside MacNean House & Restaurant in Blacklion, Co. Cavan.
The state-of-the-art cookery school features a range of exciting cookery classes for all skill levels. Classes are fun and informal and are purposely kept small to ensure the best learning experience with individual guidance, support and assistance from Neven and his dedicated team.
Presented by Neven himself, a number of classes feature special guest speakers, top tips from Neven on sourcing the best ingredients and produce, as well as tours of MacNean House & Restaurant’s extensive vegetable and herb collections with resident gardener, Kevin Ashley.
Classes include both hands-on learning and demonstrations by Neven and his team. With recipes specially selected by Neven, popular themes include ‘Entertainment Made Easy’, ‘Cooking for Friends and Family’, ‘Christmas Made Easy’, a two day ‘Home Chef’ class and the popular ‘Parent and Child’ class.
Classes then enjoy lunch of their own creation and everyone takes home a special gift from Neven including a special certificate of attendance!
One of our past Cookery School attendees has described their experience as being: “The best day I ever had from the moment I arrived till I left. Neven and the two lovely girls (Ellen and Claire) were most helpful and friendly to all of us. I couldn’t stop singing your praises to my family and all my friends. I picked up so many tips and learned how to cook some different recipes. I’m not surprised why the restaurant and Cookery School are so successful and I dearly wish Neven, his family and staff continued success for the future. I have no doubt I’ll be back for another course in the future”
