Invigorate your mid-week meals on this four part evening course. Boost your kitchen skills and gain an instant repertoire of fresh, healthy and delicious meals that can be ready in around 30 minutes, leaving you free to enjoy the rest of your evening.

Trade in the familiar ready-meal routine for a diverse range of dishes such as Pan fried duck breasts with plum and teriyaki sauce, Wild mushroom risotto, Thai prawn and coconut soup, Fennel, orange and olive salad, Lamb rogan josh; and Chicken and borlotti bean stew with piquillo peppers. 

Cover the essentials as you learn to cook a rib eye steak or a fillet of seabass to perfection, as well as the secret to a good simple bowl of pasta. And if you are entertaining, there are super quick pre-dinner snacks like Tuna and white bean mash with crostini, and the occasional speedy pudding. Mascarpone and lime cheesecake anyone?

Over the four sessions you’ll learn essential new skills which will open the door to endless quick dinners, and allow you to be creative with the contents of your fridge. Each class is a combination of quick demonstrations (with plenty to taste), and lots of hands on cooking. 

At the end of the session, if you don’t have to rush, we invite you to grab a plate and eat one of the dishes that you have cooked with your classmates with a glass of wine or elderflower cordial. The other dish can be taken home to enjoy the next day, (it serves two so you can share).
