Easy Entertaining with Hey Pesto this January

Hey Pesto Cookery Classes

Yvonne Carty of Hey Pesto! hosts a series of cookery classes at Hugh Lynch's, Tullamore, this coming January.

Christmas is a busy time in the office, voiceovers, posters, ads, last minute website upgrades flying out the door before people close their office doors on 2012. One of the poster for a long-time client of mine happened to catch my eye moreso as I knew the person he was advertising about, and so I came to learn about Yvonne Carty’s Easy Entertaining cookery classes in Tullamore starting in January.

Yvonne, who I’ve met at several foodie events in the past 12 months and most recently at the Tipperary Food Producers evening in Clonmel last week, is the brains of the operation that is Hey Pesto! and come January she’ll be running a series of evening cookery classes under the heading of ‘Easy Entertaining’. The classes will take place in the upstairs function room at Hugh Lynch’s on Kilbride Street, Tullamore, Co. Offaly.

When Are The On?

  • Thursday January 12th
  • Thursday January 19th
  • Thursday January 26th

Each of the classes runs approximately 2 hours from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on the night in question.

What Do I Get?

For €20 a class or €50 for all three classes you will learn a different starter, main course and dessert each night as well as picking up some great tips and maybe a few canapés along the way. The cost also includes menus on each night and tastings.

How Do I Book?

To book, phone Hugh Lynch’s in Tullamore on 087 2505422 or go online at HughLynchs.com. You can also find Hey Pesto on Facebook for further details.
