Back by popular request! 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 this class we will be focusing on some basic cookery skills but mainly we will learn how to make the prefect pastry – how to roll and fold and create all manner of different pies. Daisy will explain the technical side of pastry making, the importance of not overworking. Then comes the filling – with so many seasonal ingredients available to us in October you can even make your pie vegetarian if you wanted!
To avoid any wastage we will show you 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 – come hungry!!!!
