"Summer in Provence", The Women's Institute Cookery School, Oxfordshire 2nd - 4th July


Denman College

Escape to Summer in the south of France , from aperitifs to sweet Provence, I will show you how to bring Provencal sunshine into the English Kitchen and onto your tables. I ’ll start with tasty titbits that you could serve with drinks or enlarge to serve as a buffet, then a summer explosion of flavour with seabass in pesto and Provencal vegetable broth, a little lamb cutlet with artichokes a la Provencal and a glorious apricot gratin with berry and lemon verbena surprise to finish. I will show tips and tricks to make the ingredients here look and taste as if they were sur la cote d’azur.

Members and non-members alike are welcome to the Women’s Institute Cookery School located in the grounds of the magnificent Denman College near Oxford. This hands on course begins with an evening welcome dinner, followed by lots of cooking and eating for the next day and a half.
