DELICIOUS FOODIE INSPIRATION AND AN EVENING WITH GOOD FRIENDS...


TV CHEF ROSEMARY SHRAGER WITH ONE OF HER TEAM


For the perfect Saturday night dinner recipe, mix a handful of great friends, some delicious fresh ingredients, some great wines, and your very own chef to prepare a fabulous five course tasting menu, and you have the makings of a great evening!

 


The Rosemary Shrager Cookery School is where we found ourselves on Saturday night, to celebrate a good friend's birthday....and what a treat it was!

Set up by TV chef and renowned cookery teacher and writer Rosemary Shrager in the beautiful historic Georgian setting of The Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells, the state of the art school runs a variety of exciting and innovative cookery classes for both novice and budding chefs alike.   On Friday and Saturday evenings, head chef Iain More hosts the fabulous 'Chef's Table', preparing an exclusive and delicious five course tasting menu for parties up to 10 people.



Sitting around the home style kitchen area, one delicious course after the other was prepared before our eyes, with a chance to chat to Iain about the wonderful dishes and ingredients whilst socialising and having fun with friends.  




Sadly I didn't photograph every course, as you guessed it, too busy eating!  Above is the delicious Smoked Duck dish to start, and a glance at the menu below, showcases the innovative and successful flavour combinations used.  I had never had 'smoked mashed potato' before, and can now say that normal mash just won't be good enough from now on....




  As for the 'Dark Chocolate Delice'? 
Well, say no more!


With day time courses covering an exciting array of culinary skills....mediterranean, asian, indian, game and canap├ęs and many more, I am very tempted to book myself in for some new inspiration this year!

Wishing you all a happy Tuesday....
