Monday, 24th – Friday 28th August 2020
9.45am – 4.00pm
On this practical intermediate cookery course at the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School we concentrate on the more advanced cookery skills and techniques. The day starts at 9.30 am every day when we run through the recipes that will be covered. After a morning’s cooking we stop for lunch when you can eat the dishes you cooked in the morning. After lunch, the day proceeds with more cooking and demonstrations. All the food you cook and haven’t eaten for lunch, is yours to take home with you.
This course is particularly designed for those who can cook but who feel that they are not confident enough in their skills to take it on to the next stage. By the end of the week you will be cooking delicious meals with renewed confidence.
This course can be taken in conjunction with the beginners one week cookery course which takes place in the preceding week, or it can be taken as a week on its own. If you live outside Edinburgh, please contact us if you would like help with accommodation.
Skills covered during the week include:
Pastry – Pate Sucree, Pate a Pate, Strudel and Puff Pastry
Soufflés – both sweet and savoury
Fish and Shellfish – preparation and cookery
Meat – preparation and cookery
Ice creams and sorbets
Home made Pasta
