The Perfect Steak
£65 per person
As well as learning the art of cooking the perfect steak you will about its journey from the farm to the butcher. We’ll take you through the differences between cattle, the cuts, the hanging and ageing process and how to cook your steak to maximise its flavour and tenderness.
This will probably be one of the few opportunities you will get to taste a range of different cuts at the same time to really understand their flavour and texture difference. We will also cook a series of sirloin steaks from blue to well done to help you identify what your perfect doneness is (we’ve often had guests change how they like their steaks from this tasting, some preferring it less cooked than they thought they preferred whilst other more cooked).
No great steak would be complete without a great sauce so there will be a demonstration on how to make the perfect béarnaise sauce and for those after a bit more spice a classic South American chimichurri sauce.
Then the culmination of the session you will use your new found steak cooking knowledge to cook your own aged sirloin steak just the way you like it. We will rustle up the all-important chips for you. To help it all slip down Frankie, our Director of Wine, has chosen some fantastic wine and beer pairings for to choose from.
Please note that the majority of this class is an interactive discussion and demonstration of steak cooking with hands on cooking at the end. For a full day cookery class that includes steak cooking please see our Now You’re Cooking class.
