9.30 – 10.00: Welcome! Start the day with cup of tea or coffee on the house.

Morning session: We’ll start the day by getting you up to speed with the seasonality of vegetables and fruits, before making a veg stock with the addition of pulses and ancient grains and learning how their versatility can improve any dish. While the stock’s simmering, we’ll make salsas, pesto and hummus dips to be enjoyed with salad for a light lunch.
