Type of Course:
Using only the freshest and most seasonal ingredients Cornwall has to offer from our network of local suppliers. You will learn how to make some full flavoured and satisfying dishes to keep everyone going as those dark days get a little longer.
We call it our Cookery Spa Day – a bit of ‘you time’ to learn some new skills whilst you spend a day preparing a delicious feast to take home for your family or friends. By mid-afternoon you will have prepared a ‘feast for four’ which we will package up with all the final garnishes as well as a bottle of wine or a handful of beers. All you have to do when you get home is put your feet up, have an aperitif before you assemble your dishes and show off your culinary expertise. The ultimate supper party made easy.
Roasted beetroot tart with Yarg and walnuts
Hispi cabbage with walnut gremolata
Cornish Blue cheese scones with damson dip
Plus a bottle of wine from St Austell Brewery to wash it all down.
How the day goes….
On arrival at Truro School Cafe at 9.45 you will be greeted with an Origin coffee and freshly baked pastries. At 10am you will invited through to the Cookery School to don your apron and gather around our large teaching island. Your cookery teacher will demonstrate the first dish of the day, with overhead cameras capturing the finer details. Now is time for some hands-on cooking, as you head to your fully equipped cooking bay where trays of pre prepared ingredients will be waiting. Cooking will commence, with your teacher pausing the class at convenient times to demonstrate a technique, or the next dish.
At around 3pm we will pop open a bottle of something delicious whilst we show you how to plate and finish the final dishes before you head home with everything you need for your own ‘feast for four’.
Aprons, tea towels and recipe cards are provided as well as all ingredients and takeaway boxes. However, please feel free to help us reduce packaging waste by bringing your own reusable containers.
