K is for Kitchen

What’s Cooking?


February 25, 2016 / 4:41 pm


A fine time was had by all yesterday at K is for kitchen when Giuliana Cortese from CiCi CoCo Cookery school shared the secret ingredients to making the perfect Italian risotto. Chestnut mushrooms, spinach, green beans and mascarpone all went into the pot – along with a glass or two of white wine – and the results were delicious!

Perfect Risotto Feb 2016Come along next week (Tuesday 01 March, 6pm) to be inspired by the girls from the Hampton Cookery School who will be demonstrating a lovely Easter time main course followed by a pudding to wow! We still have a few places left….

And one for the diary… Giuliana is back on 27 April (Wednesday lunchtime) to make Arancini. The perfect follow on from risotto, Giuliana will show us how to fill these divine ‘little oranges’ (balls of rice) with traditional ragu as well as mozzarella & pesto. We are also hoping to see Giuliana with her mother (who is visiting the UK in May) to show us how to make her regional ‘gnocchi’. Watch this space!
