Ottolenghi-Inspired Cooking

Presented by Davide Tonucci
About the class

In this 3-hour hands-on class, Chef Davide Tonucci will show you how to cook a stunning feast of Ottolenghi inspired dishes. They’re simple, delicious but packed full of flavour. This menu celebrates shared eating and is guaranteed to help you to cater to a table full of guests at your next dinner party.

Your Menu

  • Whole Baked Snapper with preserved lemon and urfa chilli Flakes
  • Charred Lamb Cutlet with harissa and roasted finger eggplants… make the harissa from scratch
  • Herbaceous Salad with farro, barberry and pistachio
  • Cucumber Salad with fresh herbs, nigella seeds and chilli
  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts with pomegranate molasses, crispy bacon and freekah
  • Individual Sweet, Salty and Crunchy Cheesecake with homemade sweet dukkah and seasonal fruit

We’ll pour you a glass of wine at the end of the afternoon to enjoy with lunch and then you can ask Davide your most pressing Ottolenghi-related questions.

To Do List:

    • Wear closed toe shoes (we love your toes where they are),
    • Pull long hair back off your face (“waiter, there’s a hair in my soup”),
    • 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.
