Ladies Who Lunch Cookbook Club

Presented by Paul Niddrie
About the class

The long lunch – checkered tablecloths laid out in rosy English gardens, white linen dresses, soft grass beneath your feet, inherited cake stands and cut crystal glasses, none matching but beautiful nonetheless. Unrefined but deeply comforting and relaxed. This is where we want to take you with our Ladies Who Lunch Cookbook Club.

We’ll meet six times a year to celebrate a chosen cookbook by cooking through recipes, sharing stories and breaking bread together. We’ll have copies available for purchase if you’ve yet to experience the delights of our specially selected book.

Our first lunch will take inspiration from Diana Henry’s ‘How to Eat a Peach’, an evocative book of menus. Chef Paul has created a class that gives you effortless, elegant dishes for your next long lunch. We’ll cook together, eat a relaxed lunch and enjoy a glass of wine or two.

Paul will also prepare his Chocolate Mousse Cake for dessert.

    • Inform us of any dietary requirements prior to purchasing your ticket/s. Please also be aware that some requirements and/or allergies cannot be catered to – depending on the class.
    • There are often leftovers at the end of each class so we ask that you bring Tupperware from home to put them in, as we will no longer be handing out plastic containers in our bid to save the environment.
