Are you a food or baking enthusiast who would love to brush up on a particular skill in the kitchen? Dearne Valley College have a number of Saturday workshops approaching in the coming months; each focusing on one area of cooking expertise!
The first of these is the delicious sounding ‘Chocolatier Workshop’, which is running on Saturday, 15th December. The course involves a professional demonstration, followed by the creation and the tasting of artisan chocolates; far superior to any of the shop-bought alternatives! You could really impress your friends and family over the festive period, with gifts of freshly-made, luxury chocolates, crafted by your own hand!
If you are looking for something slightly more savoury, the ‘The Indian Kitchen’ cooking workshop might be for you! It is held on the 26th of January, in the New Year, and you will be taught the art of crafting a spicy feast of traditional Indian recipes and flavours through an expert demonstration. On top of this, there are plenty of practical, hands-on exercises, followed by an abundance of tasting!
If you are the Delia Smith type (or even if not!), the next two workshops are sure to tickle your taste buds. The first, held on the 9th February, is the ‘Introduction to Cupcake Making’ which as the title suggests, demonstrates a whole host of basic baking and decorating skills. You’ll be shown a simple demonstration before getting stuck in with the baking and icing of your own creations to take home! As a follow-up to the introductory course, or If you are already somewhat of a dab hand in the basics, you might want to consider the ‘Advanced Cupcakes’ workshop. This course is specifically designed to teach advanced skills, to build up your repertoire of unique and impressive cupcake decorations!
These workshops are 4-hour, short courses held at 9am until 1pm on a Saturday morning at our Rockingham Centre in Wath-upon-Dearne. They are a snip at just £35 per course and could be a treat for yourself, or even purchased as part of a Christmas or birthday gift for friends or family members! There are no pre-requisites or interviews for these courses; they are designed with everyone in mind.
To book your place on any of these workshops, simply pop down to Dearne Valley Colleges’ Manvers Campus or give us a call on 01709 513355. Happy Cooking!
