About the Course
On Sunday December 15, join chef Valentina Harris for an Italian Christmas Feast! In true Italian style, the festive season is all about sitting down with friends and family to tuck in to a traditional banquet-style spread – and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing in this delicious celebratory class! The day’s five-course meal will include Christmas Eve tortellini in a rich poultry broth, stuffed roasted duck in the Venetian style, and Tuscan cream, nut and chocolate pudding, giving you an authentic flavour of some of Italy’s finest seasonal treats and dishes, all prepared, cooked, shared and enjoyed as a group.
Full Day Class Structure
On arrival, we will introduce you to your day over freshly baked pastries and a cup of tea or coffee.
Your day will include of a mixture of hands on cookery and demonstrations performed by our team of chef’s. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and their individual teaching style.
Cooking with your classmates is an integral part of your cookery experience. You will cook your recipes in pairs, and some independently – whatever the ratio, there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too!
You will be eating the food that you have cooked for lunch, accompanied by a glass of wine around the dining table. Classes that do not involve cooking lunch will include a delicious light lunch.
This course starts at 10.00am and finishes at approximately 3.00pm
