The opportunity to cook the last of the spring harvest with ANGELA PALERMO is one that I just can’t let slip by! Yes, I’ve been dithering with the covid situation, but with a restricted number of places and covid-plan in place, we’ve decided to press on! And so, I’m delighted to invite you to join our ITALIAN HARVEST COOKING on SUNDAY 18 OCTOBER 2020.
The kitchen garden has a bounty of produce just now…from myriad leaves about to bolt to the last of the peas and broad beans, mountains of parsley and well…a whole lot more besides…and I think that this year, more than ever, spending time with someone who knows just how to turn that bounty into beautiful food is more important than ever. Regardless of the recipes Angela turns out on the day, the little gems she’s bound to share along the way…that knowledge she’s absorbed that’s been handed down from generation to generation, will inevitably spill over. She’s one of the most generous people I know and she loves to share it all. Just what we use may be spontaneously picked…and we can adjust recipe notes accordingly, because it’s this eating from the garden that I want to emphasise in everything we do here. (It’s what I do every day of course, but I like you to learn from someone who really does know her stuff!). I could listen to Ange talk about food all day….
Within a relaxed atmosphere you will learn, have the opportunity to ask lots of questions; and we will all eat well, surrounded by the bounty from the kitchen garden and…the beauty of the spring ornamental garden that’s building up to full flight!
Oh and yes…the Lisbon lemon is laden with fruit once again, so I’ve asked Ange to please, please include her exquisite lemon curd tart, just as she did this time last year! (Not a morsel of any other one has crossed my lips since!).
