I have wanted to write a blog for a few years now and with the opening of the ‘New Cookery School’ and the ‘Chef’s Table’ at our restaurant in Blacklion it seemed like the perfect time to get the blog up and running as well.
As you can see from the title of our blog I do firmly believe that ‘anyone can cook.’ So, in this blog I hope that you can share in my passion for food and cooking and learn along the way.
Cooking is in my blood from the time I started to learn by my mothers side when I was 12 years old. It is hard to believe the road we have traveled and it is fair to say that a few years have past since I first stirred a pot but a long the way I have been very fortunate to learn from some of the finest chefs in the world.
But learning never ends. I learn more about food every day, about new techniques, new ways to combine the very best of ingredients and new ways to produce beautiful dishes.
This blog is a little bit of everything. We will be looking at some of the great Irish producers that we have while I will also be keeping you all up to date with all the going ons at MacNean House and Restaurant. But most of all this blog is about cooking and I hope that you are able to get plenty of tips from it. And of course we are here to have fun.
