An Arabian proverb has it that ‘’food for one is enough for two, and food for two is enough for three”. Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia offer dishes of warmth, colour, spice and generosity; all the ingredients of a beautiful cuisine. You’ll make lamb and cinnamon-stuffed aubergines, chicken with preserved lemon, pine nut and saffron couscous, spinach, fig and cheese pie and a walnut, rosemary and olive oil cake with honey syrup.
Students are given expert tuition and recipe sheets with step-by-step instructions as they cook at their own work stations on a central aisle. Once the hard work is over, it’s Richard and the team’s turn to cook and serve you lunch or afternoon tea, as you relax and reflect with your fellow students over a glass – or two - of wine.
You then get to take all the fruits of your labour home to share with loved ones (after all, the proof is in the pudding. Or the starter. Or the main course…!).
