Hello & Welcome to Cookalicious!

I’m Cepta, a food lover & home-chef eager to share my passion with you! I run a cookery school in Co. Galway providing cookery demos, cookery classes & food experiences from the Cookalicious kitchen in my home in Oranmore. At Cookalicious we’re passionate about cooking and we’re passionate about ‘real’ food & we want to share our love of all thing’s food so you have the skills & knowledge to cook & eat real food too!

I’ve been designing and delivering cookery demos & classes for years. I’ve run courses for Galway Community College as part of the Adult Education Programme, I’ve designed & delivered courses for Connacht Rugby, both Senior & Academy teams, for the Deaf Community via ‘Deafhear’ and even Early School Leavers Programmes. I also run monthly Cookalicious Supper Clubs for private groups – as good as if not better than therapy!

We believe that what we eat & how we eat is important…

We love cooking with fresh local ingredients & sharing the know-how to prepare simple, nourishing & delicious meals for sharing with family and friends.

With so many amazing ingredients available we’re always dabbling in the kitchen! As well as creating food that is real, that is homemade & that is totally delicious, we’re big on learning, we think its infectious & we want to share cooking as an essential life-skill with everyone too. We’re also big on connection, on togetherness and on having a bit of craic. We think that what we do at Cookalicious is so much more than just a cookery class, it is about getting people together eating, laughing & learning – it’s a cookery experience!!’’

What to expect from a class in the Cookalicious kitchen?

You can look forward to a cookery demonstration where I create a gorgeous selection of dishes for you & the group. You get to see real food, cooked from scratch & you’ll get to eat everything that has been cooked so be sure to come hungry! You even get a beautiful Cookalicious Recipe Pack to bring home so you can try out the recipes for yourself. Add to that the promise that the whole experience is delivered in a fabulously fun, sociable & engaging way!


We know that different times suit different people so we offer both morning and evening classes, for all skill levels, so whether you are a complete novice or a more aspiring cook or someone who just loves cooking & food & learning, you can be sure we have a class to suit you. Just choose your class / classes from our upcoming class schedule to book a stool around our island & treat yourself to a cookery experience with Cookalicious – eating & laughing are learning are totally on the menu!

Private Cooking Class at Home

And if you cannot make it to ours or if you prefer to host a night at yours, we’re only delighted to come to you! Think of it as Cookalicious on wheels! We’ll come to you & run a cookery demo for you & your friends in your home – think of it as a ‘pop-up cookery school’ in your kitchen!

For private groups we even customise the menu to suit you! So whether you’re looking for a Moroccan night or Easy Entertaining for Friends or anything in between we will happily customise a menu just for you!
