                  Brinda will be sharing her Mauritian culinary experiences. Eating simple uncomplicated food that is freshly prepared right in front of you. Using the simplest ingredients as well as an array of spices, you will recreate some of the most popular vegetarian street food from Mauritius.

                  Course Details

                  Brinda will give you an insight into traditional multi-cultural Mauritian food. When we talk of culture and traditions in Mauritius, the unique ethnic diversity immediately transpires. Mauritius does not have one culture, but the blending of several cultures and traditions. Mauritian culture is based on the diversity of the population of different customs and traditions stemming from those who, during the last 400 years, have settled on the island’s shores.

                  For a tiny island, Mauritius has an incredibly rich and diverse food culture, influences from its mélange of inhabitants (Creole, French, Chinese and Indian) and the use of spices in my cooking.

                  Expect to make a selection of dishes such as:

                  • Chana Dhal Fritter – famously known in Mauritius as “Gateaux Piments”
                  • Aubergines fritters
                  • Coriander chutney
                  • Chapattis made with a mixture of wholemeal and white flour
                  • Potato curry with freshly roasted cumin
                  • Mushrooms in a rich tomato sauce – famously known as “Mushroom Rougaille”, a typical “creole” dish.
                  • Cold Chia seeds drink called “Alouda” – a very famous street market drink made with very cold milk.

                  The evening will be a mixture of demonstration and some hands on cooking with lots of tips, questions, answers and tasting. 

                  We will finish with a supper of all the food we have made. You will leave with a comprehensive pack of recipes so that you can recreate the recipes at home.

                            Gujarati food may be India’s best kept culinary secret. Even in a country with as diverse and fragmented a cuisine as India, Gujarati food is particularly renowned for its variety, extensive use of legumes (dal is to Gujaratis what pasta is to Italians), and distinct combination of sweet, sour and savory flavors. In this class we’ll introduce you to the Gujarati culinary repertoire using ingredients such as fenugreek, asafetida and jaggery, to make dishes such as tikhi velmi, pastry stuffed with spicy pigeon peas, cloves and mint; muthia, steamed vegetable dumplings featuring fenugreek and bottle gourd.

                                Join us for a relaxing Demuths foodie holiday in the beautiful Alpujarras in Southern Spain from 20th May until 26th May 2018. This holiday will be a mix of eating delicious vegetarian food, cooking outside, gentle walking and watching the sun set with a glass of local rose.  

                                Course Details

                                We will be staying with David and Emma at their fabulous hotel Las Chimeneas in the traditional unspoilt white village Mairena perched on the side of the mountains with beautiful views to the sea and snow-capped mountains behind. 

                                David and Emma have lived in Mairena for 18 years and they are extremely knowledgeable hosts and guides through the history, traditions, fauna, food and people of the area. They have their own finca where they grow organic vegetables, olives and fruit trees.

                                We will cook paella on an open fire, learn how to make goats cheese, pick wild herbs for salads, visit the village olive oil press, picnic in the hills, eat tapas in the local town Ugijar and treat ourselves to hot chocolate with churros.

                                The highlight will be lunch with Chris and Anna Stewart at their farm El Valero, the famous setting for his best-selling book ‘Driving over lemons’.

                                This holiday differs from our Italian cookery holiday with its dedicated kitchen and hands on teaching, this is more a foody Spanish experience with cookery demos, from their experienced local Spanish cooks Sole and Conche.

                                This is will be a small group holiday with a max of 12 guests.

                                Check out the photos from Rachels trip.

                                        Course Details

                                        Eating Alfresco is something most of us wait all winter for, and as soon as the sun is out, there is nothing nicer than sitting outside with a plate or lunch box of something fresh and delicious. Whether it's a BBQ supper, lunch in the garden, or a properly planned picnic, we have plenty of dishes to make eating outside a real joy.

                                        We love to get the charcoal out and start grilling. However it can often be tricky to get the veggie options right, so we have lots of delicious vegetable dishes that we think would make fantastic BBQ solutions for those occasions. 

                                        Expect to make dishes such as:

                                        • Picnic Vegetable Tarts
                                        • Jerk Halloumi  or Tempeh Kebabs
                                        • Paneer Tikka skewers
                                        • Persian Spiced Cauliflower ‘Steaks’
                                        • Griddled Asparagus

                                        The course involves a mixture of demonstrations, knife skills and hands-on cookery in small groups, and is led by our experienced chef tutors who can answer all of your cooking questions. The course takes place in our kitchens.

                                        There will be lots of cooking, but also plenty of conversation, tasting, fun and lunch. You will leave with a comprehensive recipe pack to take home with you.

                                            Course Details

                                            Ethiopian food is now becoming recognised for it's depth of flavour and richness found in the dishes.

                                            Eating vegetarian and vegan in Ethiopia is very common due to fasting days thus creating a vast selection of delicious plant based dishes. 

                                            A typical Ethiopian meal is served family style on top of sourdough flat bread called injeera, made exclusively from teff flour. Learn how to make injeera sourdough starter and cook the delicious flatbread. 

                                            Lentils take centre stage, we will make a berbere spice blend for the lentils and slowly cook the stew for intense flavour. We will also make a variety of vegetables based dishes and salad. 

                                            • Mesir wat - lentils with Berbere spice blend
                                            • Atkilt wot - slow cooked vegetable stew
                                            • Ye'abesha gomen - fragrant braised greens
                                            • Injeera - teff sourdough flatbread
                                            • Salata - fresh tomato salad

                                            The evening will be a mix of hands on and demonstration.

                                            We will finish with a Ethiopian supper of all the dishes we have made and you will go home with a comprehensive set of recipes.

                                            Excellent - great to learn to cook Ethiopian food which I have enjoyed in restaurants but never known how to make.

                                            The food was absolutely delicious and the balance was perfect. Erin was great - friendly and knowledgable.

                                                                          In addition to the 5 tastes, they follow an arrangement of 5 traditional colours of red, green, yellow, white and black, which will ensure a nutritious variety of ingredients. They also spend time beautifully arranging the food in different colours. Presentation is essential to Korean meals.

                                                                          Rice (bap) is central to the Korean meal. The word for rice is also the word for a meal. A bowl of steaming rice and a bowl of soup are always served to everyone at the meal, followed by varied shared side dishes. All dishes are served at the same time. There is no concept of separate courses.

                                                                          Preserving food by pickling, salting and fermenting is a Korean passion with Kimchi being the most famous fermented cabbage side dish.

                                                                          We will make dishes such as:

                                                                          • Kim-bap

The flavour is quite different to Japanese sushi rolls, as the rice is dressed with toasted sesame oil.
                                                                          • Bindaetteok

                                                                                            Eating in Myanmar is an exciting adventure of spicy curries and cooling salads with food styles from China, Thailand and India. 

                                                                                            Course Details

                                                                                            Myanmar is sandwiched between better known culinary neighbours China, India and Thailand and you can find influences from them, Samosas and pakoras from India, stir-fried rice and noodles from China and green mango and papaya salads from Thailand. Burma is made up of many different ethnic groups who all have their own distinctive dishes and ways of cooking. 

                                                                                            To experience local Myanmar cooking, it's best to eat in the teahouses. Eating vegetarian in Myanmar is easy enough with the words " theq-thaq-luq" which translates as "without living things". Every Full Moon day devout Buddhists abstain from fish and meat.

                                                                                            Balancing flavours with sour, spicy, bitter and salty is very important and is achieved by serving many small dishes each with a difference flavour balance. For lunch, the main meal of the day, you will be served soup, large quantity of white rice, a selection of curries, salads and condiments.

                                                                                            On this evening course we will make a typical 'rice meal' with a selection of curries, salads and condiments to eat with white rice.

                                                                                            • Bitter Aubergine Curry

All of the dishes are her family favourites. Sachiko is an expert in Shojin Ryori Buddhist vegetarian cooking which is a special way of preparing, cooking and eating for Buddhist monks at Zen temples. 

                                                                                                Course Details

                                                                                                The fundamental thinking behind Shojin Ryori is the wholehearted appreciation of food. Food is seasonal and locally grown. Seasonings are gentle. Nothing is wasted. Food is simple but sophisticated. Each Shojin temple has their own rules about what types of vegetables can be used and how they can be eaten.  Such ideas make Shojin unique from other types of vegetarian Japanese cuisine. This is simple, honest food where the experience of how we eat, sensibly and thankfully, is as important as the food.

                                                                                                A Shojin meal, called Ichi Ju San Sai, typically consists of a soup and three dishes. We will be exploring these types of dishes throughout the course.

                                                                                                Expect to make dishes such as:

Traditionally, the first day of the New Year is a meat free day, to enable the body to be cleansed in preparation for the year ahead.

                                                                                                              Chinese dishes eaten in the lead up and during New Year tend to be symbolic of good luck, health, wealth, longevity and prosperity. For instance, dumplings (symbolic of money and wealth) and noodles ( for longevity) are always part of a Chinese New Year feast. 

                                                                                                              All the recipes are easy to make and quick to cook, you will learn how to prepare unusual ingredients. Helen will give you lots of tips on how to make your Chinese dishes taste authentic.

                                                                                                                        Our state of mind depends highly on the hormonal balances and therefore the nutrients we consume.

                                                                                                                        Eating the right food can help lift our mood and raise levels of feel-good hormones.

                                                                                                                        Eating the wrong food can do the opposite and raise our stress levels.

                                                                                                                        Transforming your diet is an important part of your life changing process. It will prepare you for the weight loss process and help you to avoid mood swings and emotional over-eating.

                                                                                                                                                          Apple Day on October 21st has led to many traditional varieties being found in farmer’s markets and farm shops. Sometimes asking around your neighbours will reveal wonderful supplies of apples perfect for your recipe.

                                                                                                                                                          We will cook with a selection of different apples to show what an incredible resource they are.

                                                                                                                                                              Thanks to a simple structure already tested to suit busy home bakers you can familiarise with all the practical and theoretical aspects of using a natural leaven to bake at home the most delicious and healthy loaves, but most of all you will realise how simple sourdough baking can be, even without professional ovens or equipment. 

                                                                                                                                                              Three hours is all it takes to mix, fold and shape a sourdough loaf, ready for an overnight proving, during which the baker can take a well deserved rest. The sourdough buildup to prepare the dough has equally been left to ferment overnight, without much input from the baker. Consider this a deconstructed baking session where you will see all the steps required for preparing and baking a sourdough loaf, but not necessarily in the right order.

Some will be raw salads, others cooked.  We will work with grains, pulses, root vegetables and lots of green vegetables.

We will use peppery green fresh extra virgin olive oil, thick syrupy balsamic vinegar, and a wholegrain mustard. It’s the mustard that helps to emulsify your dressings and will thicken your vinaigrette and homemade mayonnaise.

                                                                                                                                                                        We will make vegan mayonnaise, ceviche dressing and a pomegranate dressing.

                                                                                                                                                                          I was in Nepal trekking last November and it's impossible to imagine the loss and hopelessness for so many. With disasters far away, we soon forget when the news cameras have moved else where, but with Nepal so many people are reliant on tourism and in particular trekking. 

                                                                                                                                                                          I'm in touch with our wonderful guide Ram Babu Bastakoli who is out distributing basics and the cookery school is supporting him to buy rice through The Relief Distribution Program to Earthquake Victims.

                                                                                                                                                                          The buffet supper will be a simple Nepalese meal of Dhal, Bhat and Tarkari.

                                                                                                                                                                          Dhal (lentils), bhat (rice) and tarkari (vegetables) are staples in the Annapurna mountain region and are eaten twice a day at home. 

                                                                                                                                                                          The dhal is made with a mix of split lentils – black urid lentils being popular – flavoured with turmeric, cumin and coriander and sometimes spinach. The Nepalese like their dhal soupy – they pour it over a mound of rice, mix with the fingers of the right hand and eat deftly keeping their palm spotlessly clean, it’s quite a skill!

                                                                                                                                                                          Potatoes are the main component of the tarkari, then seasoned with onion, garlic, fenugreek, turmeric, chilli, cumin and coriander plus lots of salt. Served on the side are stir-fried greens such as mustard tops, spinach and cabbage, and pickles (mooli sliced, much like the Korean kimchi).

We have been actively involved in responding to the earthquakes, providing emergency materials in hard-to-reach areas, building temporary schools and houses, and providing trauma counselling for those most heavily affected. We are also planning our long-term response, which will include repairing and rebuilding schools, and developing the skills of the people of Nepal in areas such as health, hygiene, sanitation and disaster-preparedness.

Vegetables bring bulk, moisture, natural sugars and nutrients to desserts and mean that less fat and refined sugar has to be added. Avocado can make a great substitute for butter, while beetroot brings moisture and sweetness. In this class, we explore how to add vegetables to desserts and what flavour combinations can work.

Fermentation is still widely found across many cultures in the world, so we draw upon a wide range of foods from all over the world on the course.

                                                                                                                                                                                  Fermentation increases beneficial bacteria, antioxidants, vitamins and enzymes found in our food and drink, so they are a great addition to our diets.

                                                                                                                                                                                  During the class, we will delve into the world of fermentation, and you will learn how to get started with fermenting at home, and the best equipment to use.

                                                                                                                                                                                                The key to confident cookery at home is to feel that you can taste a dish and work out what it needs rather than relying on the recipe. Throughout the world cuisines rely on delicate balancing of the flavours of sweet, hot, salty, bitter and sour, particularly important in South East Asian and Indian cuisine where tamarind, palm sugar, chilli and shoyu are used to bring the whole palate alive with flavour. In the Mediterranean and Middle East ingredients such as lemon, sumac and pomegranate molasses are used for sour flavour, honey to bring sweetness and are paired with ingredients with a natural bitterness such as tahini, walnuts, bitters greens and aubergines.

                                                                                                                                                                                                We will flavour dishes using freshly ground spices, citrus fruits, lemongrass, galangal, ginger and bunches of fresh herbs.

                                                                                                                                                                                                The stars of the day will be cumin, coriander, star anise, fenugreek, mustard seeds, cinnamon, pink peppercorns, chilli, paprika and cardamom, mint, parsley, coriander, thyme, basil and rocket.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Dhal (lentils), bhat (rice) and tarkari (vegetables) are staples in the Annapurna mountain region and are eaten twice a day at home. My sister found my habit of photographing our twice-daily dhal bhat quite peculiar, but I was as keen to capture the food experience here as much as the majestic snowy peaks!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              The dhal is made with a mix of split lentils – black urid lentils being popular – flavoured with turmeric, cumin and coriander and sometimes spinach. The Nepalese like their dhal soupy – they pour it over a mound of rice, mix with the fingers of the right hand and eat deftly keeping their palm spotlessly clean, it’s quite a skill!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Potatoes are the main component of the tarkari, then seasoned with onion, garlic, fenugreek, turmeric, chilli, cumin and coriander plus lots of salt. Served on the side are stir-fried greens such as mustard tops, spinach and cabbage, and pickles (mooli sliced, much like the Korean kimchi).

Only Seville oranges go into traditional marmalades, but other citrus fruits, sometimes in combinations, are also used. The very best marmalade is homemade. There are annual marmalade competitions to celebrate both the skills involved and the heavenly product.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              On this course you will make your own Seville marmalade, from choosing and preparing the fresh fruit through to filling the jars and labelling. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              On the way we will explore different ways of cutting and preparing the peel to get either the classic ‘thick cut’ or a bright golden jelly with shards of aromatic rind. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Both the famous Dundee and Oxford types of marmalade have added flavourings. You will make batches with different classic flavours. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              The class will make 4 or more different styles or flavours of marmalade, with jars to take home.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Fresh Sevilles are available in Britain only during January. We run this special course only during the Seville season.

I loved all the hints and tips and can't wait to put my new experience in to practice!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Bologna, a dynamic counterpoint to more popular touristy cities like Florence and Rome, has only recently become a travel destination for well discerning food enthusiasts. The reason for this is nothing new to Italians, who know Bologna for being affectionately referred to, among other things, as la grassa, the fat one! This summarises very eloquently the relationship that people from Bologna have with food, a centrepiece of many conversations.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Ottavia is an experienced cook and home baker from Bologna, in Italy. When she moved to the UK she brought along three very important things: her tagliere and mattarello for making pasta and Gino, her sourdough culture; in fact, she took all three around the world before finally settling near Bath. Ottavia learned to cook and make pasta at her mother's knee and continues to draw on her rich and colourful Italian background whenever she teaches cookery classes.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Ottavia is an experienced cook and home baker from Bologna, in Italy. When she moved to the UK she brought along three very important things: her tagliere and mattarello for making pasta and Gino, her sourdough culture; in fact, she took all three around the world before finally settling near Bath. Ottavia learned to cook and make pasta at her mother's knee and continues to draw on her rich and colourful Italian background whenever she teaches cookery classes.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    In this class Ottavia will explain the differences between various types of fresh pasta and will teach you how to make basic egg pasta, naturally coloured pasta and aromatic pasta. You will also learn how to create different shapes of both flat and filled pasta, how to cook it to perfection and how to associate the right sauces to the various shapes.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    There are several reasons to make one’s own pasta. First of all there is no comparison between home made pasta and the poor excuse for it that supermarkets sell. Second, it is fun and a great source of pride. Finally, making your own pasta will allow you to explore a huge range of possible shapes and fillings, which cannot be matched.

I would eagerly anticipate what each day would entail and by lunch time I was always left amazed at how food could be prepared in such a well tasting, creative way. The recipes we learnt were so well balanced and developed, it's almost like they had their own stories to tell. I feel as if I have learnt to make the kind of food I would go to restaurants to eat...a dream come true!

We will cook with Indian vegetables such as chow chow, methi leaves, long beans, green papaya and baby aubergines.
