Happy Springtime Everyone 

I know it’s not officially here yet, but now that I’m not getting up in complete darkness, I feel a certain optimism! 

The second half of term is remarkably short, but there is time to get some cooking in... 

I’ve planned a day of Welsh cooking for St Davids Day (1st March) – Welsh rarebit, Welsh cakes, Glamorgan sausages (which are vegetarian by the way), Seabass with laverbread and butter sauce, and the finest slow cooked lamb shanks 

And of course, there’s an Irish day planned for 15th March, just in time for you all to revel in St Patrick’s day on 17th. 

Soda bread, Irish stew and beef and Guinness pie. And Dublin Bay Prawns of course, and mussels with bacon and cider. Black Velvet should keep us going but there’s Irish coffee to finish us off. 

On Good Friday and on Easter Saturday there will be an opportunity to indulge in chocolate: chocolate truffles, eclairs and profiteroles, chocolate chip ice cream and salted caramel chocolate fondants. If there are adults, we’ll make chocolate based mole; if there are only juniors, it'll be chocolate fudge. 

As some of you know, I am always open to do sessions that aren’t listed here – there are a couple coming up over the next few weeks. 

of which, the last (I think) D of E course of the year starts on 4th March and continues once a month for 4 sessions. There are potentially 2 spaces still available. Please email me if your teenager wants to take part. 

And several of you have asked me to cater for your parties, but there are several dates leftover the next four weeks if you fancy taking the slog out of entertaining. 

That’s it. Email me or ring me if you have any questions. Enjoy the rest of half term Happy Chinese New Year!! 

Best wishes 

Margaret

Vegan with carnivorous overtones

Mashed and Smashed

Ideal for those who find themselves cooking for teenagers who will only eat vegan food but when the rest of the family is less convinced. These dishes are fab on their own and even better with chicken or fish added to them. It's an eye opener for what you can do.

Black pepper tofu, simple stir fries, pad thai, glass noodles with edemame beans, green squash curry and hot and sour soup. Lovely stuff, easy and filling.
