Time to get cooking together again! Bettlach workshops will start up again soon and I’ve scheduled four sessions, from Savouring Sicily in September to a full-on Middle East Vegetable Feast in October. In November we’re back closer to home with some New Tastes of Switzerland for a possible future re-edition of my book A Taste of Switzerland, in print continuously since 1992. And finally, December will bring a workshop entitled Christmas is for Sharing, a selection of snappy little holiday bites to tempt even the most jaded/overfed palates.
Here’s the full schedule:
Sicilian cooking is the ultimate fusion food, a piquant blend of Greek, Roman, Arabic, Norman, Spanish, French and southern Italian. This workshop will feature dishes gleaned and learned fresh from my late summer visit to the island.
From all around the eastern Mediterranean come some of the tastiest, most flavour-packed vegetable dishes ever (think Ottolenghi…). We’ll focus on seasonal/autumnal dishes in which veg. plays a starring role.
My book, A Taste of Switzerland, looks set to be revamped and entirely updated. Help me decide which recipes will make the cut for the new edition, as we work on a selection of innovative Swiss dishes from around the country.
In the midst of all the rich food served up at holiday time comes a craving for delicious little plates for sharing. We’ll prepare a selection of holiday tapas to tempt even the most jaded palates – great for parties and potlucks too.
All workshops cost CHF110 or €90, which covers your printed recipe booklet, full lunch menu, wines to match our chosen food and loads of fun.
Looking forward to seeing you again for more great times in the kitchen together!
And PS: don’t forget, you can always put together your own group and choose your own theme and date for a workshop. Contact me with your ideas and requests.
