Summer Living Workshop
Friday 22 June 14:30

Sauces are at the heart of cooking across the world, and knowing the right methods, ingredients and techniques to make the base sauces allow us to create the maximum flavour.

Sourcing authentic ingredients can produce even better results - knowing the producer and understanding their philosophy and their love towards nature deepens our understanding of the dish.

The Dish: Nori wrapped Newlyn Landed Cod, crispy soft shelled crab, burnt cauliflower purée, root vegetable pears, pineapple ‘Rassam'
