Cookery Masterclass | It Starts with Veg with Ceri Jones

Join Ceri Jones, Chef and Garden Museum's Food Educator, for a 3 hour cookery masterclass in our learning studio, for a vegetarian feast cooking recipes from her forthcoming debut cookbook 'It Starts with Veg'

In this class you will learn how to prepare four different veg-led vegetarian dishes, using seasonal ingredients. Through cooking these dishes you will gain valuable veg-specific knife skills, tips on making pastry, quick picking vegetables, and salad dressings. You will also learn how to season to taste, and how to beautifully present your food. Ticket includes a copy of the book.

You will leave the class feeling confident to recreate these recipes at home, and how to adapt them using alternative vegetables, increasing your recipe repertoire without learning new recipes – a theme that runs throughout the book.

The class will end by sitting down to lunch together to enjoy everything that has been prepared.
