Cookbook of the week
The Food of France by editor Kay Halsey – part of a five book series, and as with the other books, this one gives you a real taste of the country. Each recipe is accompanied by a photograph of the finished dish as well as some great step-by-step photographs.   Read more …..

Did you know – Rocket grows wild in Asia and the Mediterranean and its hot, peppery flavour becomes more pronounced with age. The leaves have become ubiquitous at trendy restaurants and gastropubs but are also commonly used in Sudanese cookery. The seeds can be sprinkled over salads for flavouring or used to produce oil.

Food quote of the week: – “Never put a sausage in the fridge. That’s a terrible crime. Rather sleep with it under your pillow” – Sylvain Monier, gourmet sausage-maker, Deauville..

Food tip of the week: – If you happen to over-salt a pot of soup, just drop in a peeled potato. The potato will absorb the excess salt.

Recipe of the weekFig tart

The Wickedfood Cooking School team was in France, to find inspiration for our French cooking classes and teambuilding cooking classes. We came across this scrumptious tart on the lunch buffet at the Hotel Royale in Deauville. Click here for the recipe.

Look forward to hearing from you.

The Wickedfood Team

Wickedfood Cooking School

Runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built
cooking studios. Classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a
week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for
corporate events and private functions – team building cooking classes,
birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.

Our classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in
the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not
only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests.
For corporate groups and teambuilding cooking classes these classes are
a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
