Thursday August 15th

Vegetarian Family Picnic Day

Our family cooking days are all about enabling family to get together, cook together and learn together. Today’s pace of life can be hectic and finding new recipes, shopping for ingredients and juggling the rest of the family invariably means not enough time to enjoy cooking.

A family cooking day at Truro School Cookery gives you and one of your children the opportunity to spend the day together cooking up a fabulous picnic to take home or to your favourite beach. Forget about salmon and cucumber sandwiches, we will show you how to take your picnics to the next level witha vegetarain twist.

Menu :

·         Heritage tomatoe salad with basil and burrata

·         Provencal tart with green herb salad

·         Artichoke focaccia

·         Sticky fruit choux buns

£90 for one adult + one young chef*

Recommended ages for young chef, 8 and up

How the day goes….

On arrival at Truro School Cafe you will be greeted with a freshly made smoothie for the young chef and something stronger for the adult. At 10am you will invited through to the teaching kitchen to gather around our large kitchen island. Your cookery teacher will demonstrate to you the first dish of the day, with overhead cameras capturing the finer details.

Now is time for some hands-on cooking, so you will head to your fully equipped cooking bay where you will find trays of all the ingredients waiting. Cooking will commence, with your teacher pausing the class at convenient times to demonstrate a technique, or the next dish.

At around 1.30pm we will pop open a bottle of something delicious. Your teacher will talk you through the accompaniments for our late lunch, before we move through to our dining area to share some of the dishes demonstrated, along with some scrumptious sides and freshly baked bread.

By 4pm you will be ready for a refreshing cold drink or cup of tea before heading home laden with your days dishes to share with family + friends.

Aprons, tea towels and refreshments provided, plus all ingredients and takeaway boxes. However, please feel free to help us reduce packaging waste by bringing your own reusable containers.

*Additional young chefs can be added for £30, but we can only accommodate a maximum of one additional young chef per adult.*
