I loved this conference when I taught a class there in 2017 and I’m thrilled to be back. The panel is called “Nose to Tail – From the Initial Idea to Launching a Cookbook.” We’ll be covering a lot of territory!

Enjoy this four-day writing workshop and four tour in the top food destination in Ireland. In the morning you’ll get instruction from me on such topics as first-person essays and the power of a strong voice. In the afternoons we’ll have writing workshops inspired by the sights and tastes of the day.
Your days will be filled with the best foods Ireland has to offer. My co-host Kate Ryan, an Irish food writer and tour guide, will take us to a private dinner and wine pairing, a dairy farm with beehives and an orchard, a maker of custom knives, a famous producer of award-winning cheeses and charcuterie, and dinner in a Michelin-starred restaurant. One night we’ll also visit hostelries and music houses for beer, whisky and foot-tapping.
You’ll stay in the family-owned Celtic Ross Hotel, on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and enjoy a hearty Irish breakfast each day. Prices are separate from the workshop fee and extremely reasonable: €65-85 per person with breakfast, based on single or double occupancy.
For more details, please read a more extensive description of the area and event here. Book early to avoid disappointment, as class size is limited. And there is an Early Bird price to entice you.
