learn to cook in the Lake District
Starters & Puddings
Daytime Practical Course
Special Offer: Bring a "Cooking Buddy" for half price
This course does exactly what it says … misses out the middle or main course, thus enabling you to indulge in the pleasure of simply making the starters and desserts. For those of us for whom these are the most delicious parts of the meal this course is perfect – it will also stand you in good stead in order to produce interesting and slightly different dishes for dinner parties or even converting them to main courses as informal and alternative ideas. We will ensure that you have all sorts of hints and tips to enhance your dishes from start to finish!
DISHES YOU MAY BE CREATING:
A duo of Savoury Mousse
Mini Cumberland eggs
Sticky Toffee Pudding
Seasonal Meringue Roulade
DURING YOUR DAY:
Our one day courses are designed to be fun hands-on and interactive – whatever your age, experience, or ability.
Arrive between 9.15am and 9.30 and enjoy coffee and a morning snack in the ‘Bubbling Beck’ riverside room…. Meet and chat with those also enjoying a relaxing and informative day at LucyCooks. You will get to meet your chef for the day who will do a short introduction to LucyCooks and let you know the format for your day ahead.
Around 10.00am move upstairs to the fully practical kitchen area – where you will be directed to one of our delightful galley kitchens, each one of which is fully equipped to your specific requirements, with a choice of gas, electric or induction hobs. There are also facilities for those with disabilities and children of varying ages.
Your fully practical course will start with a demonstration by your chef. You will then return to your kitchen, copy what they have shown you and start cooking…..
Lunch is a social affair back in the BubblingBeck… something light and delicious accompanied by a glass of wine.
The Afternoon session is some more watching, learning and doing, with a refreshment break somewhere along the way. By the time you have finished at around 4.00pm, you will have hopefully picked up a few tips and enjoyed a break from your regular routine.
We don’t profess to send you out with a diploma on kitchen management and culinary skills, but you will leave with a variety of new skills and inspiration. You will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labours back in the comfort of your own home and be proud of what you have achieved as you get to take all of your goodies home at the end of the day.
Please note we are able to adapt most courses to suit your particular dietary requirements.
