Edible Christmas Presents for adults 5th and 6th December

This is so much fun to do and just as good to receive.  I've increased the range of presents that we can do - it'll be up to us all which ones we choose - from clemencello to ginger vodka, via chorizo jam and panforte, marinated goats cheese, spiced nuts, chocolate truffles and fabulous oatcakes.  If you want to do this, I'll send you the whole list and we'll choose 5 or 6 to do.  You'll take them home with you instead of eating them here - I'll make some bread and something yummy for us to eat while you're here.

 

Edible Christmas Presents for teenagers 18th and 20th December

These are presents for teenagers to give rather than receive. There's not too much chilli and no alcohol involved.  But there are chocolate truffles, marshmallows, biscotti and fudge.  There are also florentines and spiced nuts and chocolate pecan spread. As with the adult version, there's lots to take home and some yummy things to eat here.  

 

How to Survive Christmas - 13th December

This is a proper Silly Season course - and one of the perennial favourites.  we do the whole of Christmas lunch in 3 hours - from scratch - start to finish - including cooking the bird (a large chicken in this case, but I'll talk you through the larger version), pigs in blankets, (delicious) sprouts, roast potatoes, stuffings (x 2) bread sauce, braised red cabbage, brandy butter, mince pies and Christmas pud.  Then we sit down and eat the lot,  It's all hands on deck with loads of tips and advice and dos and don'ts, It's brilliant fun and works really well as a Christmas party for offices or a group of friends.  I've scheduled one, but there are other dates available if you have a group who want to do it together.  It's slightly more expensive because of the amount we have to get through - £60 per head as a group or £70 per head as individuals

 

 Super Simple Suppers

The evening of 17th January.  This course is likely to fill up very quickly so if you want to do it, please be in touch as soon as you think about it. 

 Dishes  take a limited time (less than 20 minutes)  to prepare but are simply scrummy - roast halibut with a pesto crust, steamed seabass with ginger and spring onion, poached chicken with fresh tomato and honey and the like.  £60 per head

Raw food

Jumping on the bandwagon of the hottest trend in restaurants at the moment, this involves tiraditos and ceviches, carpaccios. tartares and salsas.  It's fabulously simple but seriously classy. I have two people wanting to do this course so I need to put in in the diary - if you want to do it as well, let me know and again, we can find a suitable date for all.  £60 per head.

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.
