Cooking with Fungi

£175 per person

If you're not fond of the mushroom - you're missing out. The umami flavours are too delicious to ignore and we're delighted to introduce you to the Cooking with Funghi class - back for autumn 2019!

This incredible versatile ingredient and its distinctive nutty, earthy taste is the perfect addition to more than just your pizza. Learn how to cook wild mushroom velouté, ceps and shallots on toasted brioche and puffball cutlets to name but a few of the incredible recipes on the agenda. Chef Tutor, Steve Bulmer will provide you with plenty of handy tips and advice throughout the session - that's what he's there 'spore' after all. As a 'funghi' himself, there's no doubt you'll have a lot of fun during this full day cookery class and leave with plenty more recipes to add to your collection.
