  • Working with Niki is an absolute joy!  Her recipes are not only delicious but look absolutely stunning too!  Whilst planning this course (in May!) I was transported to cold days with the need to have warming food.  The photo of the roasted purple sweet potato started the ball rolling.   So if you want to learn more about gluten free food but also if you want to learn some exciting new ideas for those foods you regularly use then this is the class for you. We will be making the following dishes:
    • Roasted purple sweet potato and cauliflower soup
    • Hoisin mushrooms steam buns (the image!)
    • Smokey lentils with harissa roast caulflower and aubergine
    • Mini pizza with spinach pesto roasted tomato, courgette & rocket
    • Salted Caramel Pecan pie
    With Niki's last class totally sold out we would advise booking early to avoid disappointment.  This lady is going places with a book deal and travels all over the world to share her fabulous food!
