Cookery Workshop | Joy Larkcom’s Salad Leaves

Inspired by items currently on display in our collection, this series of three daytime cooking classes led by Garden Museum Food Educator and Chef Ceri Jones will explore vegetable-centric cuisine, one seasonal ingredient at a time.

The items chosen for this series include our temporary exhibition on Joy Larkcom, the queen of cut and come again salad leaves, George Stephenson’s cucumber straightener and Cecil Beaton’s 1960 work The Cutting Garden, which features the edible flower nasturtium.

In each class you will cook and then eat three recipes for a vegetarian lunch.

Sample menu

Spinach and Feta Filo Pie
Griddled Pak Choi with Garlic and Chilli
Watercress Pesto Orzo Salad

Classes are small with just 6 participants and take place in our learning studio kitchen at the Museum. The classes are a combination of hands on and demo by Ceri.
