I first heard of Lee Watson and the Beach House Kitchen a couple of years ago when he was interviewed on BBC Radio 2 about his new vegan cookbook, “Peace & Parsnips” (you can buy it on Amazon). It’s an excellent book and I’d recommend it to everybody.
When I found out he was due to hold a small cookery workshop here in Manchester at the Food Sorcery School, I knew I absolutely had to attend!
It took place this morning and it was so worthwhile. I have attended other cooking courses and classes in the past and, to be honest, you don’t just go for the food and the recipes. You go to learn: you learn about techniques, you learn about ingredients and you learn about food combinations. You also get to work in a group with other people who have different cooking backgrounds from you and different skill sets. I often feel I learn nearly as much from my fellow students as I do from the course tutors themselves.
Would you like to see what we made?
I want to add that Lee is an excellent teacher and he was assisted on the day by his partner Jane. They’re both lovely, knowledgeable people and they created a relaxed, fun learning environment.
