What To Expect?

A typical day starts with an informal breakfast, followed by advance preparation for the evening's dinner as well as making a light 2-course lunch for all to enjoy, over which the morning's activities are discussed and menus are planned.
Tips and hints are provided throughout all sessions and students are provided with a comprehensive portfolio of recipes and menu suggestions at the end of each course. All courses are restricted to small numbers to ensure everyone becomes fully involved in all aspects of preparation, plus each student will be given a portfolio of recipes, menu ideas and hints and tips to take home.
