Prepare Ahead Seasonal Cooking

The recipes covered on this workshop are ones which can be prepared well ahead of your guests arriving. Some of them can be frozen and all are straightforward and delicious. This course is devised with Christmas Entertaining in mind.

Arrive at 9.45 am for coffee or tea whilst you watch a short demonstration and run through the day’s recipes. You will then cook dishes that will be suitable for lunch, which you can enjoy with a glass of wine. We will start cooking again at approximately 2pm and will cook dishes, which you can take home and enjoy later! The day will draw to a close at 4pm.

The recipes covered on this course are:




Creamed Celeriac and Chestnut Soup with Truffle Oil

Duck Liver Pate with Calvados served with Toasted Brioche

Venison and Cranberry Pie

Normandy Pear Tart
