On this half day workshop we will make several different soups using a wide variety of ingredients and techniques. Homemade soup is a wonderful thing to make and incredibly satisfying in its simplicity. Even better, most soups freeze well and a big batch can go a long way, whether something homemade and wholesome to take to work, or something to look forward to when you get home! We will also make one or two lighter soups suitable for eating as a first course.
The soups we make will vary according to the time of year but may include Moroccan sweet potato, spinach and coconut, tom yum, roast tomato and basil, Tuscan bean, broccoli and dolcelatte.
By the end of the day / course you will have learnt how to prepare and cook soups perfectly and simply in a variety of ways – expect to make about four soups yourself. We will also have spent time discussing presentation – how to transfer all that care and skill into a dish for the table to be proud of.
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 taste as we go finishing with a hearty soup for lunch, which you will have made, with some homemade soda bread. There is always soup to take home with you on this workshop, please bring about four small (two portion) containers.
