LITTLE LOU COOKS
LOVE TO COOK AT HOME
Testimonial from my kids classes:
"My kids have really enjoyed cooking all
sorts of fantastic dishes with Little Lou Cooks. They love all the chef tips! They burst with pride when they serve up the food they've cooked for us all to eat."
Sal, mum to Eli & Maggie.
SHARING THE LOVE OF COOKING
I am passionate about cooking good food at home. I love sharing my cooking skills so you can cook well at home everyday.
I teach kids and adults to think like a chef, to taste their food, to balance the flavours and make food that is wholesome and delicious.
Eating at home should be just as enjoyable as eating out.

When Lou was little....
I have alway loved to eat! Growing up in Ireland in the 80's food was very "Irish" with lots of cabbage and bacon and spuds and brown bread. Food was basic but it was always wholesome and homemade!
Becoming a chef....
After years working and travelling abroad I settled in Galway. I spent many years working in hospitality and decided to pursue a career in the professional kitchen and train as a chef. I enrolled on the Professional Cookery course and went on to complete the BA Culinary Arts at GMIT, Galway. During which time I was awarded a scholarship to the prestigious Culinary Arts University, Johnston & Wales in Rhode Island, US.
Working with the best....
I have worked in some of Galway's best know restaurants; the ever popular "Cava" owned and run by Michelin Chef JP McMahon, the Iconic "Ard Bia" under Aoibheann McNamara and family favourite "The Kitchen" owned and run by Chef Michelle Crehan.
Learning to cook from the best in the west ignited my passion for teaching others.
I have been giving cooking classes since 2015.
In 2021 I set up "Little Lou Cooks" to give Online cooking classes from my own kitchen.
The skill of cooking is taught and it is learned.
