We offer creative and informative hands-on sessions, all experienced in Cotna's magical valley on the edge of the beautiful Rosalind Peninsula in Cornwall. Courses include 3 choices:
1. Sourdough Bread Made Easy - you will learn to bake delicious, healthy bread from flour, water, salt & natural yeasts. We will go through the different stages of sourdough baking, going away with your own loaf, warm out of the oven. Back home you will be ready to bake the very next day with your starter mix, a banneton basket & a recipe to follow – you’ll never look back!
2. Wild Food Foraging - you will learn to identify wild foods as we walk our hedgerows, woodland & fields. After foraging, we will cook up a creative meal together then sit down to a delicious feast in the beautiful farmhouse. You will take home ideas and recipes for dishes made from local plants such as pennywort, nettle, wild garlic, alexanders, flowers, micro leaves & comfrey shoots. Seasonal variations in food available to forage - spring & autumn are generally the best times for foraging!
3. Cornwall meets Kerala - you will learn the alchemy of delicious & colourful South Indian food using seasonal ingredients and benefitting from a healthy Ayurvedic perspective. We will pick ingredients from the beautiful organic gardens or wild from the woodland for our dishes, depending on time of year.
