Demuths Vegetarian Cookery School

As I mentioned in my last post, I luckily won the chance to go to Demuths vegetarian cookery school. I have always wanted to go, so I was super, super excited for the course. I chose to go on the Autumn fast and delicious course, because I really enjoy cooking with seasonal vegetables and I spend SO much time cooking! Seriously, I spent the whole of today and yesterday cooking, so it was great to be taught some quick meals to make after work! We started the day with knife skills, which I found really useful. We have the worst knives ever in our house, so I'm looking forward to buying some proper ones and putting my newly learned skills in to action when I move in to my new house. We then made a delicious Brazilian bean stew with quinoa for lunch, spinach balls and wild mushroom pie and were shown how to make loads more yummy seasonal dishes, including an apple cake with caramel sauce.

I really felt like I took a lot away from it. One of the main things was not to cook with olive oil, which I literally do for every single meal. I've made the switch to vegetable oil and can confirm it is much better! I would thoroughly recommend going, I'm already working out how I can get there again! Check out some pictures of the yummy food we made.
