SPICED LAMB KOFTA WITH BEETROOT DIP

MEAT & GAME / ANY SEASON / SUMMER

A great alternative to burgers, these fragrant spiced koftas take very little time to prepare and are delicious accompanied by a dip such as the ORGANIC BEETROOT DIP which is available both online and in our farmshops.

Chicken & Slaw

BUTTERMILK CHICKEN THIGHS WITH FENNEL & BEETROOT SLAW

MEAT & GAME / SUMMER

This recipe requires a little preparation the day before, brining the chicken in buttermilk which results in beautifully tender meat. Served with this elegant slaw, it’s a real crowd pleaser, perfect for barbecues and al fresco eating. Our Smoke Without Fire Barbecue classes run throughout the warmer months and include simple, delicious and seasonal dishes […]

We’ve used mint in this […]

Gooseberry Fool

Gooseberry Fool with Shortbread

FRUIT / PUDDING / SUMMER

Through the summer months, fools make a regular appearance on our courses in The Cookery School.
