Description

Using pulses and grains which have been popular in dishes all over the world since cooking began and are perhaps now more associated with those healthier mid week meals, this class will show you another side to them! Alex will teach you the best techniques to get the most out of grains and lentils in more indulgent weekend meals, culminating in 3 dishes that make up the perfect showstopping dinner, catering for all tastes.


This class covers the following recipes:


  • Open Lentil lasagne with sweet potato and roasted wild mushrooms – a lasagne with a twist, made with garlic & chestnuts, porcini & red wine sauce, this really is a classic dish with a difference. This dish shows how lentils can be used to replace meat in recipes to produce enhanced results
  • Cumin and Ginger Spiced Lamb Cutlets with Spiced Freekeh – served with Sweet & Sour Yellow Pepper Chutney. This dish highlights the delights of Persian flavours and how to make the smoky flavoured green wheat, freekeh, really shine in a dish. Alex will show you how to ‘marinate’ the grain, a technique that can be used for this and all other grains, that means they is seasoned on the inside as well as the exterior. This is your gateway to greater flavour and will give you the confidence to experiment on your own
  • Super Seed Coconut ‘Pudding’ – served with Tropical Fruit, Passionfruit Sauce, Mango Sorbet & Coconut Yoghurt this is a delight for dessert lovers and shows you an inspired way to use seeds in sweet dishes for an extra layer of goodness. The sauce, fruit salad and super seed pudding can all be used individually and in different ways which you will learn about in the class

Led by Merchant Gourmet Cook and ex Le Manoir Cookery School head Alex Mackay, the classes are very hands on at our custom designed cookery school, you won’t just watch and wonder but cook and learn with Alex. He teaches so much more than single recipes, giving you tons of techniques and tips that you can apply to your everyday cooking.
