What you'll do
Your demonstration cookery session will reveal a range of culinary secrets in an informative & fun way in which we encourage participants to become involved either in as a "hands on approach" or in a questioning capacity When you arrive you will be welcomed with a welcome coffee or tea with biscuits and introduced to fellow attendees. We will then prepare a three course menu including some freshly made homemade bread that will amaze you at how simple it is. You will be given the chance to learn new skills from butchery to general knife skills that will help you grow in confidence in preparing a simple but impressive menu to showcase your new found skills. Suitable for a novice or a more confident cook eager to hone their skills. We will look at a range of culinary styles from classical french to Asian and explore modern techniques and also give tips and guidance on presentation. The sessions accommodate max 4 people so will be intimate. We provide all recipe sheets to take away. At the end of the lesson you will sit down to a light meal some of which we will have prepared and socialise. We can tailor each class to fit any dietary needs if we are given prior notice
I have had over forty years experience in the culinary & hospitality industry. My cooking skills have seen many influences from having worked in professional kitchens in Europe & the UK to Michelin rated standards. I have also been a professional food critic for well respected guide book publications so can certainly boast "many a hot dinner" and not always a good one at that! I have also widely demonstrated my skills at assorted times through my career from demonstrations to children's schools (a tough audience) to big trade shows. My passion is to share in a relaxed & informative way.
You will get to eat what I demonstrate at a relaxed meal . You will be provided with Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks throughout…
