Hens making fresh pasta, Matlock, July 2015 - read review
Why not try your hand at learning some new kitchen skills as part of your hen weekend? It's good fun, and you get to eat what you've made! Recipes, ingredients and equipment are provided for you then choose from the following activities. The number of participants is only limited by the space you have available in your kitchen.
Italian Cookery Lesson
Everyone has a go at making fresh pasta from scratch, grissini (Italian breadsticks, which for some inexplicable reason usually turn out in rude shapes), chicken saltimbocca (learn a cheffy trick or two), and spectacular sugar baskets. Afterwards, I cook your evening meal using the elements you have prepared, then you sit down to enjoy a 3 course dinner, served by myself.
