Popular Request…

In addition to the public cookery classes available at the weekend, we run private cookery classes for corporate events, Hen parties, Birthdays and other private events.

These classes are three hour cookery classes jam packed full of fun & food.
One of the classes that we run is in Thai & Vietnamese cuisine and Carol O’Connor was on to us during the week with a special request for our Thai Green Curry recipe…we thought it was just too good not to share on this week’s blog.

Enjoy 🙂
