What you'll do

We will bake fruit, lavender and berry scones, and spelt or brown bread.
I will bake on my side of the video, while the guest will bake at the same time at their place. Im going to do all the baking step by step with them.
I believe in the hands on experience for my guests - from handling ingredients to kneading dough.
It isn't all about the cooking, I share lots of tips from my experience over the years.
I love to see the faces full of excitement and joy at the sight of the end product - freshly baked scones and bread.
And best of all we have lots of fun.
Other things to note
Just sign in and let me entertain and educate at the same time.... it will be fun !!!

I am a restauranteur with busy cafe and luckily work close to home. I live in an area of natural beauty and really enjoy walking, hiking and exploring. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of local history with my guests. I love the natural cycle of my garden and while away many happy hours there. I do hope my guests will enjoy its beauty. I enjoy entertaining, meeting new people as well as yoga, dancing and the outdoors. I hope you will like in the West half a much as I do. x Kate

Kate was fantastic! She shared a bit of Irish history and was really patient when I mixed up an ingredient and needed her tips and more time to improve my scone mix texture. She truly helped me fix my scones - she could just tell what the mixture needed from the Zoom! - and they came out SCRUMPTIOUS. This is a great experience for experienced bakers, beginner bakers, individuals or a group of friends. Overall, the recipes were simple and included ingredients many might already have on hand. I do recommend measuring everything out before the experience starts - doing so made things a bit more seamless. I only wish we had more time to talk with Kate and learn more about Ireland!

Kate is a lovely host and the scones/Irish soda bread came out really well. It would have helped to have the measurements converted to US ahead of time. Other than that, it was a great experience.

Wonderful baking experience baking with Kate. The scones turned out great. The bread looks great too - I’m just waiting for it to cool to take a bite!

Kate's class was so wonderful! Barely felt like any work at all, we were just chatting up a storm like old friends. The scones and bread turned out great, and more than that, I feel so much more confident for future bakes now that I know how to do it the authentic Irish way. Can't recommend this class enough, and I'm very excited for the future when I can travel to Galway and visit her cafe in person.

We’ve been trying to make brown bread since we came home from Ireland. We could never get it right until we baked with Kate! She made it easy to learn to bake scones and brown bread. We loved the experience and hope to book another class with Kate!

Baking with Kate was extremely fun, the bread and scones were both delicious ... in fact the scones were some of the best we've ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed talking with Kate (and the other attendees) about our travels and to reconnect with some friendly Irish folk. Couldn't have asked for a better host, she was patient, friendly and extremely helpful -- you could tell that she wanted everyone to be successful; and we were!
