ITS BEGINING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE SPRING TIME !

I spotted my first lamb..it must be Spring? Birds cheeping and goodies cooking at LucyCooks.

We have a spectacular amount going on this spring time, here is a little taster of some of the events happening at LucyCooks:

HOME APPLIANCES INSIGHTS – MONDAY 28 APRIL

Looking to find the best new kitchen appliance for your home? From toasters to kettles and much more, we’ll be road testing a range of kitchen appliances, relying on Number 67 appliance reviews for further insights.

We’ll discuss common buying mistakes and how to avoid them, together with examining the key functions that you should expect to find in the latest toasters and kettles from the likes of Breville, Russell Hobbs and Kenwood.

EASTER BREAD WORKSHOP – FRIDAY 25 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 26 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.

**We are offering a family of four (2 adults and 2 children)a discounted rate of £200 to attend this full day practical course, which will include lunch and a glass of wine for the adults. You will also be able to take home all your culinary creations at the end of the day**
