Cookery Classes

Our Autumn term will commence once we have recovered from The Ploughing Championships. This year instead of catering at the event I shall be donning my wellies (pink of course!) for my cookery demo in The ICA Pavilion on Wednesday 19th. Excited? Me? Never!! ūüėČ

As you know I normally do my classes on Tuesday evenings but this doesn’t suit everyone so in response to requests I’m going to schedule some on Wednesdays as well.

The Autumn Class schedule is as follows :

  • Wednesday 26th September : ‘Quick & Tasty Meals’
  • Tuesday 9th October : The ever popular ‘One Pot Wonders’
  • Tuesday 16th October: ‘Spice it up – A Taste of the East’
  • Wednesday 24th October : ‘Delectable Desserts’
  • Tuesday 30th October : ‘Modern Vegetarian’
  • Wednesday 7th November : ‘Canap√©s’ *
  • Tuesday 13th November ‘A Taste of the Mediterranean’
  • Tuesday 20th November ‘Edible Gifts’
  • Wednesday 28th November : ‘Festive Party Food’ Sold out
  • Tuesday 4th December :¬† ‘Festive Food’ Sold out

*This year I am introducing a ‘Hands On Canap√©s’ Class which promises to be lots of fun! ¬† Please note numbers are limited so advance booking (with deposit) is¬† recommended.

**Once again we are running our fabulous Christmas Workshop full of food and fun. A   three course lunch is included and there will be a Chocolate Challenge! This is a full day from 10 until 5pm


Cookery classes in Hey Pesto! are demo style which have a habit of developing into social evenings! I cook a number of dishes over 2 hours and then we all sit round the kitchen table and enjoy the dishes, accompanied by a complementary glass of wine
