A Spring/Summer Garden & Pranzo (Lunch) – Sunday, 8 November 2020


Sunday, 8 November 2020
10am till 2pm


This is combined garden and lunch Workshop! I will share with you my very basic knowledge of how to setup a kitchen garden and how to maintain it. We will focus on the spring/summer garden, and lightly touch on a plan for the autumn/winter garden. We will then harvest a few veggies from the kitchen garden to cook pranzo (lunch) together.

There will be home-style cooking and baking involved, with lots of chatting, laughing and learning along the way. We will then sit outside (alfresco style) together to enjoy the fruits of our labour sampling authentic Italian fare with a glass (or two) of vino.

TO BOOK USING GIFT VOUCHER: Please email angela@thevillagecooks.com.au with your contact details and voucher number. Angela will reply with booking confirmation or if extra payment is required.
