Rochestown Park Hotel celebrates 30 years at the heart of the community in Cork this year and when planning our celebrations we decided to take a different approach to the traditional party.
As a fitting tribute to our customers and the people of Cork, for their continued support, we have commissioned the Raising Dough for Marymount Cookbook project, #RaisingDough.
The Raising Dough for Marymount Cookbook project is the brainchild of our Executive Chef Gary Burke and aims to raise €30k in Rochestown Park Hotel’s 30th year for the Marymount Hospice.
Gary Burke, Executive Chef at Rochestown Park Hotel, has for a long time sought a way of repaying Marymount for the great care shown to his family and the families of his colleagues at Rochestown Park Hotel who have relied upon their dedicated support.
Why a Cookbook? Why not? Gary honed his skills under the tutelage of the Brennan brothers and Kevin Dundon, assisting with the running of the famed Cookery School at Dunbrody House. Having run restaurants, opened hotels and now serving sumptuous delights in Cork’s premier events hotel, it's safe to say Gary knows a bit about food.
But this isn’t meant to be just another cookbook, Marymount touches and has touched the hearts and souls of families throughout Cork and Munster. They provide care for the loved ones of husbands, wives, sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, indeed all family members.
As such this book aims at celebrating the family in all its glory. The recipes range from the simple to the slightly more engaging, they showcase the best of Cork produce and local suppliers but more importantly they taste of Cork, of Home and of Family.
So, you knew it was coming!! Here’s the ask!
€20 is all we’re looking for! That’s right, you heard it, just €20 will help us on the way to our target of €30k and what do you get………well a shiny new cook book of course filled with Cork delights, a chance to gather the family around the table and the knowledge you’ve helped raised funds for a very worthy Pure Cork institution, Marymount Hospice.
