About the Course
Looking for something different to keep your children busy this half term? Let them enjoy a taste of Italy, without leaving the country! Characterised by its simplicity, Italian cooks rely on the quality of the ingredients, from citrusy lemons, rich and fruity olive oil, to vine-ripened tomatoes and abundant fresh herbs. 13 - 17 year olds will experience the essentials of Italian cuisine as they learn to make the best the country has to offer in this intensive and inspiring day of hands-on cooking.
The 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 the classmates is an integral part of the cookery experience. Students will cook recipes in pairs – whatever the ratio, there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too!
The budding chefs will be eating the food that they have cooked for lunch around the dining table, before heading home.
This course starts at 10.00am and finishes at approximately 1.00pm
Allergies and Intolerances
We are happy to make adjustments where possible. Some classes are however unsuitable for people with particular intolerances – where the menu would need to be completely different. Please call the school to discuss any relevant allergies with a member of staff. We must speak to you before your visit if you have a severe allergy, mild allergy, severe dietary intolerance, or are unable to eat any meat or animal products.
