If you are sick of the same old sandwiches and sushi day in day out for lunch, then here is definitely something new and exciting to consider. A 30 minute cooking class over your lunch break!
L'atelier des Chefs offer this course for £15 which is definitely good value considering it's fun, you learn something new, and then get to eat your creations with a glass of wine and maybe some dessert to follow.
Out of the many time slots and recipes offered we chose Salmon with a shiitake mushroom stir fry and lime.
|Ingredients ready to go|
The kitchen is massive and big enough to accommodate 15 students per class. We were given aprons and set at our work stations. The chef went over the recipe and demonstrated how to prepare each of the ingredients which included a brief explanation on knife skills. Knife handling skills were definitely needed with these amazingly sharp tools.
We were able to sit at front of house and enjoy a glass of wine with our self made lunch. And of course how can you leave without having some dessert?
This is very achievable during an hour lunch break if you are around St Pauls or Oxford Circus.
