'Cooking the books!' - Donegal's celebrity chef's  free cookery demo in a library!

Brian McDermott will be cooking up a storm at the Central Library

Celebrity Chef Brian Mc Dermott will be giving a free cookery demonstration later this month in an unusual location, the Central Library in Letterkenny. 

McDermott, who just recently published his own book, 'The Donegal Table', should be right at home in this interesting if not unique setting for a cookery demonstration.

McDermott, who appears regularly on TV, is a Donegal Local Food hero and he will hold the free cookery demonstration in the Central Library Letterkenny on Thursday 26th of April at 7pm.

The event is part of the Healthy Ireland at your library programme.  Healthy Ireland is a national campaign for action to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Ireland. Its main focus is on prevention and keeping people healthier for longer. More information is available at healthyireland .

Donegal’s Healthy Ireland at your library service co-ordinator, Kevin Mc Caul said: "We are delighted that Brian has agreed to be associated with the Healthy Ireland Programme. His inclusion will allow us to promote the wide range of health and well being resources available in libraries across the County. We look forward to welcoming Brian and everyone on the night."

Brian will be cooking up a storm in the library and showing the audience how to cook some healthy meals for family and friends.

Brian’s new book entitled ‘The Donegal Table’ will be available to borrow from the library on the night.  The library will also be giving some copies away to a few lucky audience members. This is going to be a popular evening so early booking is advised.

To book please contact Central Library on 074 9124950.
