Chef Niall (from Ireland)
Niall was brought up on a dairy farm in Ireland. His family was completely self sufficient, making all their own butter, cheeses, sausages, chutney, jams, cakes and breads. At an early age he was baking cakes, making soups and jams, churning butter and collecting sorrel from the hedgerows! He is particularly interested in nutrition for healthy living and food safety. He developed the ‘Kerrouet Royale’ – a world class cocktail which is named after the local village were they are based. Niall loves exploring old recipes and developing new ones; he launched a new dessert, rosehip posset, using wild rose hips. He can also advise you on great walking and cycling trails in the area and invites students to explore places of interest.
