The Kitchen Gossip

It’s lovely to see new season’s ingredients coming in, heralding the delights of the year to come. As well as Yorkshire rhubarb, the wild garlic is now in season and it wont be too long before new season’s lamb is available. Click Rhubarb to find my favourite spring recipe, which is very versatile and easy to make at home.

2014 has got off to a flying start with busy classes right across the schedule. Our Thursday Cookery Club Mornings and Supper Evenings have been very well received and our Barbecue Cook and Lunch courses get going over the Easter weekend.
