Summary Simple Suppers: Spring/Summer

Invigorate your summertime 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 routine for a diverse range of summertime suppers, such as sea bream with a fennel and orange salad, new potatoes en papillote, Keralan chicken skewers with a coriander chutney, risotto alla Milanese with gremolata and individual lime cheesecakes.

Cover the essentials as you learn to cook a fillet of seabass to perfection, as well as the secret to a flavour packed bowl of pasta. We’ll teach you a great new selection of dishes that are quick to prepare and also carry a cache worthy of entertaining, just without so much work!

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, 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).
