This June, July and August look like being, in the infamous words of Sir Paul Weller (okay, maybe they’ve not knighted him yet, but surely there are few greater wordsmiths than he during our time?), a Long Hot Summer for Pudding Pie Cookery School.
Kicking off on June 23rd, ably accompanied by this year’s Masterchef finalist, Andrew Kojima, the cookery school will be demonstrating sustainable food cookery classes at Westmill Wind Farm in an attempt to raise awareness of the importance of incorporating replenishable food stocks into our every day meals.
The open day event, which 600 of the WeSET co-op’s members are expected to attend, promises to be a fun-packed day bringing to light the plight of our dwindling energy supplies, both the type we burn for fuel and energy but likewise, through the day-long cookery courses, also the natural resources that provide our very bodies with energy and fuel.
Once that event has been and gone, all eyes then turn to the summer holidays and the rush of activity that sees school children (and parents) flock to their cookery courses as an activity that not only passes the long six weeks but also learns the budding pudding pie (I nearly wrote ‘pudding club’, then – that would have been a faux pas, non?) chefs life lessons, to boot.
More kitchen space means more availability for summer cookery classes
This summer holidays’ cookery courses promise to be bigger and better than ever as the addition of another kitchen sees the cookery school able to offer 240 spaces, their biggest number ever. They do warn, however, that these spaces do fill up rapidly, so don’t hang about if you’re looking to give your darlings something to do (and yourself a well-earned break) this summer.
To run alongside all of that, the cookery school have gone into partnership with ‘hello babycakes‘ to bring the art of cake cookery to all of those eager to learn how to bake but are perhaps without the experience necessary to produce the perfect cupcake or get their fairy cakes to rise in the morning. Enough said.
Phew. It’s going to be a busy old time in Banbury, Oxfordshire this summer, that’s for sure. If Pudding Pie Cookery School is a little too far away, why not check out our selection of hand-picked cookery courses to find summer events and classes near you?
