Cooking Club, Tues 10th & Weds 11th June 2014

|

tomatomozzarellasalad.JPGThe Cooking Club is a monthly series of classes that you can dip in and out of as you please. At each class we cook a seasonal vegetarian supper, the stars of which are Riverford's beautiful organic vegetables and fruits. This class is perfect for those who want to eat seasonally and are after a little recipe inspiration (as well as a fun night out).

Classes are usually held on the second Tuesday and/or Wednesday of the month, 7pm-10pm. We cook together for a couple of hours - learning different culinary techniques each month - and then sit to enjoy a convivial dinner around the kitchen table with wine.

Early summer minestrone soup with basil pesto

Wild rice, spinach & broad bean salad

Jane Grigson’s pan-roasted new potatoes

Grilled courgette, asparagus, rocket & halloumi salad

Roast red pepper, tomato & mozzarella salad

Cherry clafoutis



“I have thoroughly enjoyed these classes. I have learned many new skills and the classes have given me ideas on using seasonal vegetables. I have used many of the recipes again.”

“Thank you for another wonderfully inspiring and enjoyable evening.”

smquiches0002.JPGThe Cooking Club is a monthly series of classes that you can dip in and out of as you please.  Classes are usually held on the second Tuesday and Wednesday of the month, 6-10pm.  At each class we cook a seasonal supper, the stars of which are Riverford's beautiful organic vegetables and fruits. 

Each class focuses on different produce and culinary techniques, so if you attend several they form a course.  You will develop knife skills and learn easy but delicious dishes you can repeat at home.

Classes end with an informal meal together around the table with some good wine, and recipes to take home.

Vegetable box cooking classes

|
Do you get a weekly organic vegetable box but rarely use it all up?  Are there wrinkly beetroots, swedes and turnips lurking at the back of your fridge, making you feel guilty? 

Well, you're not alone.  Surveys have found that the majority of veg box customers have trouble getting through their box, mainly due to limited cooking time, low culinary confidence, and lack of recipe inspiration.

SmPreservingClass0603100004.JPGI've recently joined a new scheme, run by veg box kings, Riverford Organic, to help more people make more use of their beautiful vegetables.  I'm offering small cooking classes in London for Riverford customers and their friends, and getting involved with other exciting Riverford events. 

You can read more about it here, and join Riverford's new Community of Cooks here.  Pictures of my first class - on preserving winter fruits and vegetables - are here.
