No More Boring Barbecues Advanced Techniques (£150) 10am to 5pm
The Pyromaniac Cookery School is rather different to many UK cookery schools and was inspired by chef Kathryn’s travels through Southeast Asia where cookery school students enjoyed a leisurely pace and an informal approach to learning. While there is plenty of hands on activity and the requisite cookery book to take home, students also take time to sip a glass or two of wine and gaze into the fire as they share a meal. All dishes taught can be recreated at home on a basic fire pit or barbecue with minimal equipment. All classes can cater for a wide range of dietary requirements. Please notify at time of booking.
TripAdvisor review of Beginners Fire Cooking: “The food we prepared was extremely tasty and also achievable to recreate at home. The day was well organised and as well as learning things I will definitely use we were also given time to eat and drink around the fire, a very chilled out experience. This is all held in Kathryn’s home and it just adds to the lovely laid back overall feeling. I would highly recommend booking a place on the course as it is amazing.”
Even if you have hosting a barbecue down to a fine art, making the same dishes over the years can leave you hungry for inspiration. What about a dish that wowed Michel Roux Jr? Yes, this is the course with the bonfire steak! As well as cooking a rib of beef in a bonfire to serve in flat breads with 18 hour gravy, students will be cooking scotch eggs before baking a ginger cake to serve with apples in a caramel sauce.
