Gastro Pub Inspired Dishes

Gastro Pub Inspired Dishes

Duration: 1 Day

Join William Grinsted for this one day cookery experience and learn to create stand out Gastro Pub dishes. Great food has been intergral to the survival of our pubs and the arrival of the Gastro Pub has taken pub dining to a different level.

This course teaches you how to prepare and cook a fantastic selection of impressive Gastro Pub inspired dishes including:  

  • Shallot tarte tatin, white onion puree, walnut, basil and watercress
  • Ham hock crispy duck scotch egg with tomato jam
  • Loin of venison, pork belly crisp with parsnip puree and prune reduction
  • Confit of salmon, rocket pesto and grilled Mersea oyster
  • Chocolate honeycomb parfait with mango mouse

The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park.

The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared.

Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.

Please note Children over the age of 8 years old are welcome to attend and participate in any of our classes at the full cost of a place but MUST be accompanied by 1 paying adult.
