The cookery school is 5 years old and we are celebrating!

This June the cookery school will be 5 years old and to celebrate such an occasion we have teamed up with our buddies from Growing Connections and with the Jo Cox Foundation to host a big party at the back of the cookery school.

This will take place on Sunday 18th of June noon until 4pm.  We will be making and decorating the largest cake ever and there will be other food fun acts to follow.  Also there will be a lot of gardening activities for all as well as live music, hula hooping, dancing plus a BBQ lunch!

This event is also part of the Great Get Together – a campaign set by the Jo Cox foundation to encourage neighbours to get together, share food, have fun and know and love each other more!

All we ask is for you to come along, if you want bring a cake as we will have a cake table for people to share and even more, the cookery school is offering a class for two (worth £60) to the winner of the most innovative cake, so bring your cake and you never know you might end up winning a prize!

Recipe of the month: Quatre Quart Cake

This is the most delicious and easy to make cake all you need to do is to weigh some whole eggs!

Take 4 whole eggs and weigh them – make a note of how much they weigh

Add the same amount of butter, self-raising flour and sugar

Beat the sugar and butter until creamy

Add the eggs, one at a time and beat, add the flour

At this point you can add any flavourings like lemon or orange zest, some grated coconut,  a couple of tablespoons of chocolate or some strong coffee and walnuts.

Put in an 20cm round lined baking tin and put in a preheated oven at 160C.  Bake until an inserted skewer comes out clean – about 30-40 minutes.  Cool a little bit, take out of the tin and leave to cool down completely, enjoy!
