learn to cook in the Lake District
Daytime Practical Course
Special Offer: Two cooks for the price of one
This Masterclass is your invitation to become the hostess with the mostess, beguiling your guests with your capacities in the kitchen and your planning prowess. It will build on the foundations and skills-base that you already have and boost your confidence and competence in the kitchen.
Everyone wants to be able to produce a three course meal that is inspirational, seasonal and doesn’t demand hours to be spent in the kitchen rather than in the company of those who are sharing the experience with you … so, our Thrilling Three Course Days are designed to be as varied as the seasons with plenty of opportunity to learn different skills and techniques combined with creating tasty, colourful food. This course incorporate dishes to use for dinner parties rather than suppers – balancing and blending menu planning. Each Thrilling three courses will include a starter, main course and dessert – with the appropriate accompaniments and of course something delicious to serve with either aperitifs and digestifs!
DISHES YOU MAY BE CREATING
Ham Hock Terrine served with a celeriac and apple remoulade and aspic cubes
Duo of Chicken
White chocolate Mousse Tart on a dark chocolate pastry base
General knife skills
Filleting and/or boning
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.
