Catherine Fulvio – Bio

Catherine Fulvio

Catherine Fulvio
TV Chef / proprietor, food writer and cookery tutor, Catherine Fulvio, runs Ballyknocken Cookery School and Ballyknocken House.

Catherine, herself a Wicklow native, says she learnt her cooking skills from her mother and then trained professionally.  Her naturally vivacious personality and pure infectious enthusiasm for food has led her to where she is today.  Catherine and her team host a variety of classes offering mouth-watering dishes while at the same time they dispense helpful advice.

Catherine is highly acclaimed for her hands on, no- fuss style of cookery, using the freshest ingredients possible. She believes that cooking should fun and her easy approach together with recipes that encourage those who normally shy away from cookery is a winning combination.  At the other end of the scale, she also runs her very popular entertaining and gourmet classes for her regular clientele.  She has three TV Series “Catherine’s Family Kitchen”, “Catherine’s Roman Holiday” and “Catherine’s Italian Kitchen” and is a regular on TV screens both at home and abroad.  When Catherine is not busy in the kitchen she is busy researching new courses, menus and recipes to delight you with.

On a more personal level, when not working, Catherine is a doting mother of two. Catherine’s family has been at Ballyknocken for almost 100 years while husband, Claudio, hails from Palermo, Sicily.
