RECIPES & TIPS

Gooseberry Fool
45 MINS

Gooseberry Fool with Shortbread

FRUIT / PUDDING / SUMMER

Through the summer months, fools make a regular appearance on our courses in The Cookery School. A wonderfully simple way to celebrate British summer and autumn fruits, they are a versatile and delicious pudding. The best gooseberries are usually mid-season, when they are not hard and mouth-puckeringly acidic like the first first ones tend to […]

Chilled Tomato Soup
2 HRS

Chilled Tomato, Cucumber & Fennel Soup

HEALTHY / VEGETABLES / SUMMER

Everything in this summer garden soup is raw, but as well as the bright, fresh flavours, the pleasure comes from the different textures. Some of the tomatoes are blended with the oil and vinegar, and the cucumber, fennel, pepper and celery are chopped finely and mixed through to lend a nice crunch amongst the softness. […]

Smashed Peas
15 MINS

Smashed Broad Beans, Peas and Mint

VEGETABLES / SUMMER

A celebration of summer produce and ingredients harvested from our Market Garden this recipe features really fresh, vibrant flavours that go well with lamb, chicken or fish. Simple combinations of flavours and seasonal ingredients are something we emphasise throughout the year on our Seasonal Organic Suppers cookery days. Join us to learn how we celebrate […]

Salsa Verde Lamb
24 HRS

Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Salsa Verde Mayonnaise

HEALTHY / MEAT & GAME / SPRING / SUMMER

This is a favourite of head chef Gaven Fuller: “A lovely, rustic, slow-cooked and warming stew that really showcases the lamb. IT does involve a little time, as the meat needs to go in the oven first, so that the fat melts through it and it becomes incredibly tender, then its cooking liquid is used […]

Wild garlic Butter
10 MINS

Wild Garlic Butter

DIPS & SAUCES / VEGETABLES / SPRING / SUMMER

A delight to have in the fridge ready to serve on top of a steak, to toss through fresh greens or to smear onto warm bread. Incredibly simple to make and mouth wateringly satisfying, wild garlic butter is a must at this time of year!

Green Smoothie
5 MINS

Ginger, Parsley & Watercress Smoothie

FRUIT / HEALTHY

We have chosen to hero the parsley in this recipe due to its incredible cleansing qualities. Herbalists often refer to this flavourful leaf as ‘the blood-cleanser’ as a result of its vital properties. This recipe was created for classes we hosted at Taste of London this summer and one we would very much recommend you […]
