I am not the only blogger in my family as my sister is a food blogger which makes for interesting conversations between Louboutins and soda bread we’ve got it covered!! She recently was invited down to Cloughjordan House for a nights stay and a bakery coarse the next morning and to my delight she invited me along. We arrived in the evening to a beautiful old farmhouse I new instantly the place was going to be lovely. We were going to be staying in the old coach house above the cookery school that had all been renovated. Our room was lovely fresh modern with a shabby chic feel to with a huge bathroom. After a great nights sleep we took a wander around the grounds where we met the owner who gave us a tour of the ball room and wine room and informed us that they do weddings. It has a certain French quality about it, it certainly would be an amazing venue for a wedding.
There is a a certain charm and quality to Cloughjordan house from the Beatle parked outside the house to the more then welcoming Labradors wandering around in their relaxed state.
For our breakfast it really couldn't have been any healthier, I had three different types of Glenisk yogurt and afterward we had a traditional Irish breakfast but this was not any ordinary Irish breakfast the bacon and sausages were all Cloughjordans produce as well as the fresh eggs, you could really taste the difference.
We went straight into the school after breakfast we went straight into the school where where we met the other guests that were partaking in the class they were all in pairs either friends and couples which I thought was a lovely way to spend a morning. Needless to say I had great fun learning how to make everything from bagels to profiteroles (drool). It was funny watching everyone learn and be silly an laugh at little mistakes and then there was my sister who thank god was all to familiar with the kitchen who made up for my mistakes and one stage I was purely supervising haha the poor girl!!
