Need some fresh inspiration in the kitchen? Well, this ‘Taste of Africa’ cooking experience could be just the thing to hone your skills and enliven your palate. Enter the renowned academy of multi-award winning chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli, and learn to prepare several flavoursome dishes of the African continent – the culinary world’s best kept secret!
The experience takes place at Jean-Christophe’s home, in picturesque Tea Green, Hertfordshire. On arrival, you’ll be welcomed by the resident expert in African dishes and ingredients. She’ll be your engaging guide – drawing on both her culinary heritage and contemporary international perspective – as you begin to explore an exciting new cuisine, together. Firstly, you’ll be introduced to the ingredients, some of which you may have spotted in the supermarket – whereas others will be totally unfamiliar! Once you know your yams from your cassavas, it’s time to get cooking! Expect fragrant tagines, rich peanut butter stews, and fresh salads – all based on authentic recipes, passed down from generation to generation. Throughout the day, you’ll enjoy practical demonstrations and get hands-on, before finally sitting down to a delicious lunch – Jean-Christophe himself may even make an appearance!
The ‘Taste of Africa’ Cooking Experience, with Lunch is a chance for home cooks to discover a diverse yet relatively unsung world cuisine. Treat them to an Experience Days gift voucher, and reap the rewards come dinnertime!
