Cookalicious is the ultimate fun way to learn fuss-free, fabulous and delicious cooking with friends. Cepta is a joy and her recipes have become my go-to for mid-week dinners and dinner parties. I couldn’t recommend Cookalicious highly enough

The cookery course we did with Cepta was a brilliant way of learning simple but essential techniques that improved my cooking skills and made cooking much more enjoyable. I now have a bunch of go-to recipes that are tasty, simple and healthy that I still use regularly 4 years later. Thoroughly valuable & enjoyable learning!

If you are looking for a night or a morning full of education, enthusiasm and energy, a class with Cookalicious is for you. Whether you are a foodie or complete novice you will pick up new ideas, get to try new foods and possibly make new friends along the way. Please, please, please bring out a cookbook Cepta!

Cookalicious is firmly installed in my monthly calendar – not just for the social aspect and chat, but for the fabulous enticing menus and food choices. I love the extra tips Cepta gives for each dish on the menu -I am usually jotting down her tips and variations only to realise she has them already printed at the end of the recipes!

Cookalicious has taught me so much about cooking and gave me confidence to cook for others without stressing that it wouldn’t turn out ok. Now I always use Cepta’s recipes and get great compliments! Her food is colourful, healthy and incredibly tasty. Cooking from scratch is what I consider to be normal now

Every month I can’t wait for our Cookalicious night with Cepta. I love the fun that us 10 women have together. The meals Cepta makes astonishes me every time. They are easy, quick, healthy and delicious. The variety of her recipes are amazing, and I always learn something new from her valuable tips. Love Cookalicious!


Can’t recommend Cepta enough, always such a fun night, full of laughs and wonderful food. The best part is you can see how everything is made and you get to bring the recipes home. So many of the dishes have become firm family favourites’’

Would highly recommend a Cookalicious experience with Cepta, I am constantly amazed at how she continues to inspire us with her creativity, knowledge and talent. I’ve acquired wonderful ideas for entertaining friends and family as well as quick and economical mid-week family meals, snacks and desserts. Our monthly gathering with Cepta is a learning experience & a social occasion wrapped into one!

This is such a lovely evening! Gather your friends, family, work colleagues together and let Cepta do her thing. She knows her food and her passion, humour and knowledge shines through. Cepta has created a special event that should be experienced by everyone!

Cepta held a Cookalicious night for a group of 13 of us! And what a night. Cepta is great fun & delivers a cookery lesson with great spirit! I couldn’t recommend her highly enough! You’ll be coming back to Furbo Cepta!! Such a fun night and learnt loads too! And the food was totally scrummy

A group of friends & I have regular Cookalicious Supper Clubs. I absolutely love my night out with the girls and fabulous Cepta. I come home with brilliant recipes to try out on the family and when entertaining. It has hugely expanded my repertoire of recipes, saving me from the Sunday evening ‘head scratching’ for dinner ideas for the week. Cepta’s an excellent cook and gives amazing variety of well thought out and fine-tuned recipes. She is also amazing at giving ideas on possible variations within the recipes. Such fun & relaxed nights!

I finally got the chance to attend one of Cepta’s Cookalicious soirées at a friend’s house. It was fantastic! Great fun, great food and we got to eat everything too. Highly recommend organising one for yourself. It’s really something fun and different! Now to try out all my new recipes!

Corinna M

Cookalicious is a great experience that I’d recommend to anyone. Lots of lovely natural food, great tips and recipes that I honestly have used endlessly. And the icing on the cake – it’s such a fun night out too!

Edel O’C

We had an amazing evening, with a wonderful lady who educated 12 of my friends, shared in the laughs and cooked us the most delicious meal. I love hosting dinner party’s but by far this was the best! Cepta came and turned my kitchen into a restaurant and returned it back to me how she found it. She is truly amazing at what she does. She shared some great tips and the food was too die for! Inspiring!

Catriona F

Cepta ran night classes in Galway Community College for several years. Over this time, she demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge of her area with classes that were well structured & supported with excellent handouts. Cepta was popular with students, conscientious & extremely capable. I would highly recommend a class with Cepta

Love Cookalicious. Cepta’s food is 5 star & totally delicious. Best thing is she teaches you how to DIY. Every night is different and so much fun. Would highly recommend.

Trish F

’I cannot recommend Cepta highly enough. She is an inspiring teacher and presenter with a wealth of knowledge and a flair for putting new twists on recipes to create delicious and interesting food, every time. Her classes are fun & interactive but also well organized and structured, and I leave every class better informed and motivated to try to recreate the delicious meals she had demonstrated. Ceptas passion for cooking is contagious, such an adept chef who makes it all so achievable with her positive and encouraging attitude

Deirdre M

So much to love about my Cookalicious experience from the way Cepta shared her great cooking tips to the delicious food we all got to eat along the way. Cepta made it great fun, an amazing experience and a great way to get together with friends, family and neighbours


For professional rugby players, nutrition is an essential component of their training programme. Cepta designed and ran tailored cooking classes for Academy and professional players within Connacht Rugby. Cepta’s professionalism and attention to detail ensured the classes were educational and informative while still been fun. The skills that our players learned will benefit them in both their personal and professional lives. I would strongly recommend any individual or group to learn with Cepta

I can’t recommend Ceptas Cookalicious classes highly enough. Cepta is an exceptional cook with an endless reservoir of tips and suggestions for anyone trying to improve their cooking. Thanks to Cepta I have loads of great recipes for all occasions. But the best part -this is a fun and sociable night out with a group of friends…. or like us start out as strangers and become firm friends! Can’t wait to see what you have for us next time Cepta!

Denise R

The ultimate night in!! So much fun, we learn,we laugh, we LOVE the food! Cepta is an exceptional cook and demonstrates her cooking skills in such a warm and friendly way. This is a super social occasion. I always look forward to our next night with Cookalicious. Highly recommended!
