We are celebrating the Jubilee in style this year and actually having a garden party at my in-laws, where we will be expected to wear red, blue and white, and shall eat yummy food, get merry and be silly!
Last week I was invited to a fabulous cookery masterclass hosted by Tesco Real Food, the in-store food magazine that give loads of recipe ideas and cookery tips. The session was held at The Cookery School at Little Portland Street in London and led by the lovely Rosalind who gave us a cookery methods including brilliant cookery tips, like the secrets to making the perfect custard. The trick is putting some of the sugar into the cream and boiling it until it is really hot and adding it to the egg yolk and rest of the sugar! Anyhow I digress…
The aim of this cookery Mater class was to teach us how to cook a selection of recipes that can be found in the current magazine to celebrate the Jubilee. They are all recipes that are straight forward, with simple preparation and can actually be prepared in advance so that you can enjoy the party yourself.
The recipes up to cook were as follows…
Three Pea and Wensleydale Salad - made by and Fleur who blogs at Homemade By Fleur (This was my favourite and I am not a salad fan, but I could have eaten the lot of this, and Wensleydale cheese is to die for!)
The session started with a nice glass of champagne, was put down to concentrate on the cooking (hiccup! Of course) and finished with our own indoor street party and tasting session of all the food we had cooked up! Delicious.
I felt so lucky to get the chance to attend an event where I learnt so much, so a big thank you to Tesco and it is always lovely to meet other bloggers.
Tesco currently have a competition running with lots of great prizes up for grabs including a weekend cookery course for two at Ashburton Cookery School. All you have to do to enter is if you have your own inspirational Street Party Recipe then upload it to Customer Recipes on the Tesco Real Food website.
