Online Cooking Class: Boozy Irish Comfort Food

Create Irish comfort food with a boozy twist in this hands-on, live online cooking class with Chef Tracy. You'll make two Irish dishes packed with flavor (and plenty of booze), beginning with a meat and vegetable cottage pie, a twist on the shepherds pie that incorporates Scottish ale and Irish beer. Then, you'll learn to make a creamy, chocolaty Irish pie from scratch that's spiked with Bailey's, Irish whiskey and Guinness beer. 


Traditional Cottage Pie

With potatoes, Scottish ale, ground beef, carrots, leeks and Irish ale

Irish Car Bomb Pie

With Bailey’s Irish Cream, Irish whiskey, Guinness, cream and chocolate

Chef Tracy’s dining experience was amazing. Her knowledge of food, & nutrition coupled with her vast life experience made for an unforgettable experience. My date and I had an amazing time. I learned so much about technique, and overall how much she knew about not only cooking but nutrition and diet. It was truly a gift to meet her. She has a wealth of knowledge in so many different facets. Highly recommend. We plan to do more in the future!
