Find out what the ‘craic’ is with these signature Irish recipes…

McGettigan’s has long been one of Dubai’s staple sports bars and if you’re missing your dose of the Irish spirit, it’s launched a series of brand new online cooking classes to bring you one step closer.

Even though you can’t head to your local McGettigan’s in JLT, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Downtown or JBR for one of their hearty Irish meals, you can learn to cook your own dishes, directed by McGettigan’s very own Head Chefs.

The free online cooking classes launched on Sunday, April 5 and started off with the Head Chef at McGettigan’s JLT teaching viewers how to make traditional Irish brown soda bread, which is the perfect accompaniment to a rich stew, or simply just served fresh out of the oven with lashings of butter.

If you feel like you’re a bit of a novice when it comes to cooking, don’t worry, the 60-second videos are short and sweet, with easy-to-follow recipes. A new one will be launched each Sunday throughout April via YouTube where you’ll learn how to cook McGettigan’s crispy roast potatoes and even a sumptuous sticky toffee pudding. Yum.
