There And Back Again

Mon 14th Nov 2011


“Once upon a time we didn’t know how to cook and then we did and now we don’t again.”







Once upon a time we didn’t know how to cook and then we did and now we don’t again. With a few ingredients, a knife and a pan or two, Barny Haughton (Rocinantes, Quartier Vert, Bordeaux Quay) and his Cookery School set out to cook seven different recipes that will tell you everything you need to know about food since man discovered that fire could keep you warm in winter and you could cook on it.

This is more than just a cookery demonstration: It’s about you in your kitchen with your knowledge, your budget and your expectations.

It’s also a dialogue: you ask questions and get answers and tell us what will work for you and what won’t.

Along the way you’ll learn how to get best value from inexpensive ingredients, how to plan for the week, what will freeze and what won’t, how to get children cooking in a way that is fun rather than stressful and how to make the time and space you have in the kitchen work for and not against you. You’ll also learn why cooking courgettes that you’ve grown yourself opens up a whole new world of pleasure and possibilities.

It's also, incidentally, about the future of food. The landscape is changing at every level. What do YOU want from it?

Ten quid, 90 minutes, lots of fun and who knows – maybe together we can make a real difference
