TEA PARTY TIME
Colaiste Eoin was fortunate to have Head Chef 2018, Margaret Roche a past pupil of the school demonstrate her culinary skills for the Home Economics class. Mag is a great friend to the school and her lively and enthusiastic personality is still talked about among the teachers, little did they realise the talents she had hidden. Mag has worked in a number of prestigious establishments, Hugo’s and The Waterside Inn and is currently working in The Wild Honey Inn in Lisdoonvarna. Her cooking like Mag is modern, contemporary and still acknowledges the community from where it is sourced. The winner of the McKenna Top Chef Award says herself about her craft, “It’s not boring, or mundane, there is never a dull moment, it is exciting, for sure a little stressful, busy, crazy- but it is without a shadow of a doubt the best industry in the world”.
As always Mag exuded enthusiasm and the students had a ball preparing pastries and sandwiches fit for royalty. We wish Mag continued success and look forward to seeing her soon, if she can’t make it in to school we can catch up with her on her regular spots with Daithi and Maura on RTE.
