Spring Cookery Classes

We are running two classes this term with chef Vanessa Miller.

Practical French on Tuesday 24 February and Practical Italian on Friday 24 April.

The class runs from 9.30am until approximately 3pm.

Vanessa will cover several recipes, and this term you will be creating something during the day that you can take home.  We will discuss how to prepare recipes ahead of time, there will be plenty of top tips shared throughout the day, and the opportunity for you to get up and have a go - aprons are provided!

After a morning of cooking, we will sit down and enjoy a 3 course lunch of the food cooked and have a glass of well deserved wine.

The recipes are available for you to take home.  The cost of the day is £75.  

There are currently 3 places remaining on each class.
