Learn to Cook....In 3 parts - soup & vegetables, meat & fish, puddings - can be booked seperately
Learn to cook….
These half day workshops are designed to help you master basic skills in the kitchen. The emphasis of this workshop is not on learning recipes but on learning about ingredients, which work well together and why, and using your own judgement. The aim is that by the end of the session you will not only have increased your knowledge but also your confidence to cook simple fresh dishes at home. Using knives correctly is also an essential part of this workshop.
There are 3 of these workshops. no.1 covers soups and vegetables, no.2 meat and fish, and no.3 desserts but each part may be booked independently.
Perhaps most importantly, as well as learning new skills, you will have had some fun learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. During the course the emphasis is on using personal taste, judgement and technique rather than slavishly following a recipe. This approach means that one recipe may become two or three recipes. However, a booklet containing the course recipes will be given to you at the end of the day / course.
Everyone has their own set of ingredients sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.
We will stop and eat as we go along so that you taste dishes at their best and we can discuss. There may be food to take home with you, but not always.
The not so small print – please read.
It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort, we will be on our feet most of the time.
It is essential when booking that you advise of any accessibility issues, allergies or dietary requirements. Rutland Cookery School is committed to being as inclusive as possible and we will do our utmost to accommodate you but we do need to know in advance.
Dishes prepared may vary from examples above.
