We’re delighted that local celebrity chef, Beverley Glock, will be joining us for the Feast on the Farm weekend. Beverley has many hats- she is a TV Cook, broadcaster, author, food writer, founder of Splat Cooking Parties and Beverley Glock Cookery School.
Beverley is a children’s and family cookery expert, encouraging them to explore ingredients and discover the stories and legends behind our everyday food. Beverley’s expertise is cooking great food using seasonal ingredients that taste fantastic, looks amazing and is quick and easy to cook. She doesn’t do ‘phaffing’ about food. Life is too short.
Beverley encourages children to learn about food, where it comes from, how it grows, how it’s transformed into the food we eat on the table whilst building in the science, maths, geography, history and languages as part of the fun.
Her team will be running some of her most popular children’s cookery workshops throughout the Feast Weekend:
Cupcake Masterclass – A chance for kids to release their inner Bake Off. You will learn the art of sugar craft, making mini pumpkins and rose to decorate homemade pumpkin and orange flavoured seasonal cupcakes.
Pasta Genius “How to make Pasta”- You will make a portion of pasta from scratch to take home and cook. Learn the art of mixing, kneading, rolling and cutting tagliatelle using pasta makers. While the pasta is drying the children will make pesto to take home to serve with their pasta. Dinner on the kids then. Result.
Whizz Bang Food –This is the fun science of food. Want to chef like a pro? Well this is the workshop for you. Deconstruct chocolate: making chocolate into a powder and watch it turn back into chocolate. Spaghetti jelly: yes thats right learn to take jelly and make it into spaghetti almost instantly. Caviar Pearls: Using syringes to make those pearls that adorn the plates of the high end restaurants. Turn yourself into a Michelin Star chef. Brought to you by the Beverley Glock Cookery School.
The children’s workshops will be available to sign up for on the day- places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Admission is included in the ticket price. Children must be aged 6 and up and accompanied by an adult at all times.
