Dishes for Seasonal Entertaining – Sensational Spring Flavours
Chef: Stephen Bulmer
Duration: One Day
Theme: Dinner Parties
Price: £160 weekends, £140 mid-week
We run a series of four seasonal entertaining courses throughout the year, ideal for dinner parties, lunches and suppers. Each course makes the most of delicious, local produce that is redolent with the flavours we associate with each season.
Our seasonal entertaining courses will teach you how to prepare your menu ahead of time and cook multiple portions together, to enable you to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your guests. Steve will also talk through variations for the dishes featured on each course – suggesting alternative fish, meat, vegetables, nuts, spices and herbs – to give you an even wider selection of recipe ideas.
