Irish Sweet Scone Making Experience

Welcome to Ballyknocken Cookery School, set on our farm with wonderful grounds and delightful herb and vegetable gardens for a truly authentic Irish experience.

And it’s time to don your apron because in this exclusive hands-on experience you get to perfect, learning from an expert, the art of making a real traditional Irish favourite! Yes we are making delicious scones that will be crunchy on top but deliciously soft inside. We have special tips and techniques that we love to share so that you can recreate the perfect scone!

DESCRIPTION

You’ll get to enjoy them straight from the oven, where you split them in half and let the wonderful Irish butter melt into them and top them with our homemade rhubarb & ginger jam, using rhubarb from our kitchen garden of course. And to perfect the experience, you simply must have the scones with a cup of Irish tea!

This recipe is a family favourite passed down through the generations of home bakers at Ballyknocken Farmhouse and has been shown by our own Catherine Fulvio on NBC Today Show and on Recipe.tv, where it has been warmly welcomed as the definitive Irish afternoon tea treat.

You’ll also have the chance to purchase signed copies one of Catherine’s 4 award winning cookbooks, see the sheep in the fields and soak up the beauty of the gardens when you are here. Close by are Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens if you are taking a day trip from Dublin.

Optional extra: The legend behind the Irish Coffee is a wonderful tale but making your very own and mastering the cream so that it floats on top brings joy to all who try it. That’s the mystery of an Irish coffee that we can’t wait to share with you. And the best is the last… the tasting of a real Irish coffee!
