Spring & Summer 17 ( 3 Events )

And then there is Christmas! How about mastering a Xmas seafood paella, christmas duck, and our tasteful take on turducken with some elegant turducken rolls. We've got baking classes too. Learn how to make savoury and dessert roulades (a great option for Christmas lunch!), and master DIY chocolate truffles.

A veritable bounty of flavours and new-found skills in these Monday Masterclasses!
