With authentic Irish and British Isles food made from scratch, we invite you to join us each month for our special Celtic Cooking and Baking classes. These classes are conducted by our in-house experts, Executive Chef, Jill Oman and Head Pastry Chef, Paige Hawk. Let both of these talented women teach you the “ins and outs” to the art of Celtic Cooking as well as their own “special sauce” techniques and tricks.
Celtic Baking Classes
Learn the ins and outs of traditional Irish baking with the Red Stag Pub’s in-house bakers! The Red Stag Pub presents Celtic Baking Classes in the Great Room of the pub, focused on four different Irish or Scottish baked treats. These fun, demonstration based classes led by Paige Hawk, McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub Pastry Chef, will give you all the basics for making your own scones, shortbread, brown bread, and millionaire bars!
Space is extremely limited for these classes, so make sure to sign up early. Feel free to take one or all of the classes — it’s your choice! Join us, and you’ll learn the history of each item, how to make it, and of course, sample and take home your luscious goodies.
