Let's Cook Scotland
Saturday, 18 October 2014
We are fortunate in Perthshire and Fife to have access to a wide variety of fabulous wild game from pheasants to red deer from partridge to rabbit.
We will use game birds such as pheasant and learn plucking if required as well as techniques for boning and filleting, what to look for in good healthy game and some delicious recipes
• How to prep a pheasant and rabbit
•Pot roast pheasant with root vegetables
•Saddle of rabbit salad with sunflower seeds
•Quick cook haunch of venison steaks with beetroot and gherkins
•Saddle steaks with red wine and rowan jelly sauce
After today you will be able to face a whole bird! Learnt techniques for quick cooking to maximise tenderness and moisture, as well as the base for a classic sauce Grand veneur.
Fife’s Food Ambassador Christopher Trotter brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to his cooking demonstrations and workshops. Author of 6 books on food and cooking including The Whole Hog and The Whole Cow. He has run an hotel in Argyll and his own restaurant in Fife. A regular on the BBC radio Scotland’s The Kitchen cafe, Christopher enjoys cooking with fresh seasonal produce.
Our One Day Cookery Courses are a great way to learn new skills and new flavour ideas in a fun and relaxed atmosphere at our Perthshire cookery school. They are suitable for all levels, from the complete beginner, to someone who is looking to broaden their culinary repertoire.
Here is what to expect on the one day courses:
•Course starts at 10am and ends around 4pm.
•Small and informal classes. 6 students maximum.
•Coffee and Home Baking on arrival.
•Mixture of demonstrations & practical sessions; we believe that you can’t really get to grips with something unless you get your hands dirty!
•All ingredients are weighed out for you in advance, giving you more time to spend on cooking.
•Sit down lunch with wine. A chance to eat your creations with a well deserved glass of wine. Or a light lunch will be provided if we have not cooked a meal.
•Any dishes not eaten can be taken away.
•A recipe booklet.
All you have to do is to bring yourself and a good appetite!
