We have a spectacular amount going on this spring time, here is a little taster of some of the events happening at LucyCooks:
EASTER BREADS - FRIDAY 18th APRIL
Never made bread before but always wanted to - come and enjoy a day course at LucyCooks and learn how bread is so easy to make. We are fortunate enough to be nestling between a brewery and a bakery at Staveley, so we have a wealth of knowledge on our doorstep. From Easter Egg Bread, Hot Cross Buns and our fantasic Chocloate loaf,you’ll ‘knead’ to come on one of our days to really feel what it’s like to be in the ‘dough’ …Bread making is a wonderful way of dispersing all that stress from the trials and tribulations of life. You’ll leave us with enough bread to start a small bakery ….. (as for the beer … you could pop in for one before heading home!
EASTER FAMILY FUNDAY - SATURDAY 19TH APRIL
Our Family Fundays encourage ‘families’ to cook together – allowing time to create dishes in a relaxed and uncluttered environment that can then be recreated at home. We always cook a three course meal and accompaniments. It’s a lot of fun and you’d be amazed at how much you discover about each other that you didn’t know before! We welcome a whole range of ages … so come on Mums, Dads, sons and daughters try something different with this course.
DINNER PARTIES FOR FRIENDS- SUNDAY 20TH APRIL
Create fab dinner party dishes , from starters and mains to desserts. Impress friends with recipes for delicious party food and canapés. Get ahead with stress-free make-ahead puds.
Our fully practical class will inspire you with a new range of wonderful dishes you will be able to create time and time again for even your fussiest friends!
