Just a 5-hour slow jog post eating….but it is well worth it ūüėČ.¬†“The best bread and butter puddings are made with panettone an Italian sweet bread filled with dried fruits. And, it is terrific with spoonfuls of apricot jam dolloped randomly. Utterly delicious served with your favourite vanilla ice cream.”
  • The world’s best chocolate chip cookies…..truly.
  • Cheats vanilla slice – nothing wrong with a short cut here or there when it creates something this good, this tasty & this speedy. This will be your new answer to friends popping in for the afternoon or dinner or your child’s dessert table. It will take you back to very happy places.¬†
  • Perfecting scones & their variations
  • Hazelnut & chocolate friands¬†– from the cookbook ‘Relish Mama family’ ……& the joy, we are told, these darlings have given to so many.¬†
  • Chestnut & rosemary Italian cake – “A sentimental recipe from my Sister Kirsty. She taught some classes in the early days of Relish Mama & this is an absolute treasure. I cannot wait to share it with you all”
  • Lemon & cucumber cakelettes¬†with gin syrup & lemon curd
  • Lavender flatbread with candied lemon & lemon ricotta
  • Flourless orange cake with semi-nude yoghurt icing & candied orange slices

Ohhhh …..and we’ll make a salad together which will be served with some class made dips to keep the sugar highs at peace.

Please note that given the variety of the menu & the extensive menu, this cannot be an entirely hands-on class. It will offer opportunities throughout the class however & will be very up close & very interactive & very delicious.
