Fundraiser at Fairyhouse Cookery School

A great time was had last night at Fairyhouse Cookery school where Billy and Co. demonstrated the making of a wonderful warming sweet potato and coconut soup, crostini and toppings, an Asian beef and vegetable casserole, and a coffee tiramisu. We got to sample everything and they were delicious.
