The Cookbook Club is a uniquely original event which takes place monthly when a well known chef-author hands their cookbook over to the restaurant team to re-create/interpret a selection of signature dishes from his/her most recent cookbook….


Elaine Walsh is the brainchild behind the cookbook club. She is from a small mucky farm in Kildysart, West Clare in the very West of Ireland. The cookbook club is inspired by the hospitality and kindness of her grandmother, a midwife and mother, a nurse who both looked after and fed so many in their kitchen even though they had little themselves. The Cookbook Club was originally set up in September 2010 with the incredible help and design work of Jane Manahan.
