The workshops are designed to be fun, informative and paced according to your group.  We have everything you need here with plenty of coffee for your arrival and while I teach you about washing up, you won't have to do much!  The cookery workshop will get underway promptly and everything will be demonstrated for you.  We shall keep your mugs topped up along the way and when all the cooking is done, the table will be set for your grand feast.
