Waiting List

Simply Summer

Delicious, fresh, inspirational and beautifully presented Supper, Lunch and Entertaining recipes, all of which are very easy, with as much advance preparation as possible.

Brand New Get-Ahead recipes for everyday and for entertaining with the aim of making cooking as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.

HOW THE MORNING WORKS… The demonstration will start promptly at 10.00am with coffee served from 9.30am onwards (not before!) and last for approximately 2½ - 3 hours. The format is an informal morning when I demonstrate a variety of different recipes. The small size of the group encourages cookery queries that I hope I can answer!

All the food that is cooked is eaten amongst the group and suffices as a light lunch. Everyone will receive a folder of the recipes to take away and (hopefully!) lots of shortcuts, tricks and tips for the future, for both experienced and less confident cooks alike.

If you would prefer to book by telephone please kindly ring Karen or Jane, MONDAY - FRIDAY ONLY during NORMAL OFFICE HOURS PLEASE, 9.00AM – 5.30PM on 01668 215 200 with card details.
