2019 Private Groups & Teambuilding

If you have a group of friends, family, work colleagues or a tour of between 8 – 50 people, we can organise your own private cooking experience. We will work with you to design the course or combination of classes on a day that suits you.

Our purpose-built cookery school has been designed with the student in mind. It is bright and airy, and has been fitted with the top-of-the-range domestic equipment to give the student the most enjoyable and beneficial cooking experience.

All year, we have corporate groups from local multi nationals, tour groups and a range of other visitors coming to make the most of our wonderful facilities, located just 2 mins from Kinsale town.

What makes the Kinsale Gourmet Academy different?

  •  Classes led by award-winning Head Chef David Rice
  •  Small class sizes with personal attention from experienced professional chefs
  •  Chefs with Michelin-standard experience
  • Small ratio of chef:student with our focus on hands-on classes
  •  David is a qualified Nutritionist as well as Cross-fit Instructor
  •  Separate outdoor kitchen with an authentic Italian wood fired pizza oven
  •  We specialise in Private Groups – choose from one of the following or tell us what you want to achieve and we’ll design a course for you
  • Maybe add on unique experiences such as a cocktail making class in our dedicated cocktail bar – the Cuban Cocktail Lounge


Since our classes are small, you get personal attention from David and his team of tutors so you can gain a lot more knowledge in a shorter period of time than larger operations, as well as making it a more practical, stress-free and enjoyable experience.

Head Chef & co-founder, David Rice, has the philosophy on keeping cooking simple, so that the food can shine on the plate. He is a fun and engaging presenter and is a health and fitness fanatic. We like to describe him as – Mischief meets Michelin – highest standard of technique and knowledge of food, but he likes to have fun in kitchen! He has vast experience and has worked under Ross Lewis Chapter One, Jamie Oliver and a bunch of other well-known chefs which has shaped his own unique take on food.
