A lot of classic British dishes are unashamedly hearty – who minds our famously bad weather when you can tuck into a perfectly made chicken, ham and leek pie?!
In the first of our classes we are focusing on some basic cookery skills.
Learn how to make the perfect pastry – how to roll and fold and create all manner of different pies. Daisy will explain the technical side about pastry making too – the importance of not overworking! Then comes the filling – with so many seasonal ingredients available to us by the end of April you can make your pie vegetarian if you wanted!
To avoid any wastage we will show you how to use up your left over pastry and make Palmiers and cheese twists to take home with you.
Then we move on to a traditional treacle tart (nothing like those Mr Kipling tarts we had as kids!) as well as mastering the art of making a good custard and a caramel to boot.
