Award-winning chef Keith Kenny visited Scoil Mhuire a few days ago to give the children of 6th class a cookery demonstration. Keith is the head chef with La Banca in Lucan Village and the Lucan Golf Club. He focused his demonstration on cooking dishes that are healthy, nutritious but simple to do. Keith started by making a lovely summer fruit drink, followed that with a butternut squash and coconut soup and finished off with fajitas.

Keith made enough for two hungry classes (and their teachers) to enjoy and also sent in four platefuls of fajitas for the rest of the staff! The food was absolutely delicious and the children will give their verdicts on the next edition of Scoil Mhuire News, so until then you can feast your eyes on our photos below.

Keith told us that La Banca has recently been nominated for ‘Restaurant of the Year’ and that he has a new cookbook coming out soon. You can keep up with Keith & La Banca by visiting their website or by liking ‘La Banca’ on Facebook
