Canapes and Nibbles

Little pre-dinner treats or tapas style dining dishes. Learn how to present and make interesting small meals or canapes to add priceless va va voom to your dinner parties and around the kitchen table sharing. You will learn things like Marmite Mushrooms with Tarragon Cream, Warm and Crispy Pastry with Pancetta Centre. Also how to trim and dice, sharpen and hold and other kitchen tips to increase your culinary brilliance.


Afternoon Tea and Cakes

Nothing on earth sets the taste buds tingling of a sweet toothed chef than that of a delicious fresh cake or pastry. Drizzling chocolate or double cream filling, creme patisserie, vanilla icing, luxurious sponge and delicate decoration. These few hours spent on this subject will propel you towards a lifetime of kitchen wonderment.


Practical Guide to Amazing Cooking

Do practical and amazing go together... they sure do in my book. Just because it may be simple should not dim the dishes brilliance. Learn to fillet a fish and bone some lamb or chicken to make best use of all of it. Find out what the supermarket wants to keep a secret. Chocolates and at least one awe inspiring dessert. Sharpen a knife and bake a loaf of bread. You will wish this course went on forever. As with all the courses you will leave with recipes and ideas to last a lifetime.
