BBQ season

Preheat properly If you’re going to get a good crust on your food and that BBQ flavour, you need your BBQ to be hot before you start cooking.
Don’t poke BBQ's take time. Only turn steaks or burgers once or twice. And definitely don’t squash everything down as this forces the juices to run out and leaves the meat dry. Sausages are also best left alone – piercing the skins dries them out.
Remember food hygiene Even though BBQ's are out doors and the hunter gatherer instinct will keep in remember to keep it clean. Do not mix raw and cooked food, check temperature of your food and make sure to wash your hands.
Give it a rest Let cooked meat rest on a clean plate, cover with foil, for about 10 minutes before carving so juices can redistribute evenly.

Leave the BBQ to us.. We would be more than happy to look after the BBQ for you CLICK HERE for packages

Another major occasion on the Limerick College of Further Education events calendar will be marked this month. 1st & 2nd  Year photography learners will exhibit a selection of their work at the College’s 16th Annual Photography Exhibition which will open at the Absolute Hotel Limerick, on Thursday 26th May at 7.30pm.

As in previous years, the photography exhibition will run at the Absolute Hotel for the entire year. Members of the public interested in purchasing any of the works can do so by contacting the relevant learners directly. Previous LCFE photography exhibitions at the venue have always been highly successful.

Commenting on this year’s showcase, Eoin McCarthy, LCFE Photography Department, said: “Staging an exhibition like this requires a huge commitment on the part of the learners and the teaching staff at the College. We are really looking forward to giving members of the public an all year opportunity to view the calibre of work produced by the  photographic learners, who only began to study photography full time in September 2015/16.”

Limerick College of Further Education is currently accepting enrolments for courses commencing September 2016. The Photography Department at LCFE currently runs two, 1-year, full time programmes. Learners who successfully complete the programmes receive QQI/FETAC Level 5 and Level 6 awards in Photography. At the end of the 2nd year, learners also receive a Higher Professional Diploma in Photography. Both programmes are designed to enable learners to develop an understanding of the variety of roles and skills undertaken throughout the photographic industry. 

Take a look at some of this years outstanding work.
