Fast Mediterranean Cooking Class

For those that want to eat food they love with effortless cooking, come and join this Mediterranean Cooking Class! A good introduction to Get Cooking and a way to learn three simple – easy to make – Mediterranean dishes. I often argue some of my favourites involve very little time in the kitchen.  Here you make Italian meatballs, a classic risi e bisi (risotto with pancetta and petite pois) and we demonstrate a versatile spaghetti dish where a little anchovy, fried bread, lemon rind, herbs and other Mediterranean ingredients can be tossed in.

This afternoon event is part of our new series of Fast Cooking Courses.

Dishes you make:

Italian meat balls

Risi e bisi (pea and pancetta risotto)

Spaghetti with fried bread, anchovies, parsley, lemon rind and egg (demonstration & tasting)

About Emily

Emily Carey has been teaching people to cook classic and original dishes for over 8 years, driven by her passion to make home cooking more widely accessible.

Her childhood, in a home where good food, especially Mediterranean food was ened, started her off on a journey of discovery and exploration. She developed an eye for good recipes and learning what foods work well together, adding to this a flair for bringing food and people together, and that became the basis for Get Cooking.

With a simple start in 2010, and the opening of an exciting and unique venue in Farsley in 2016, she has continually incorporated fresh ideas into the business.

What you can expect from this course
  • You will be welcomed to the cooking school on arrival where you have access to tea and coffee making facilities and you can grab an apron. This is followed with a brief introduction to the course structure and kitchen before getting stuck in.
  • All of the ingredients are provided and you will have your own worktop space, kitchen equipment and utensils to work with in our home-from home spacious kitchen. You will have a minimum of two induction rings and access to an oven / sinks.
  • As a general rule, you will follow Emily as she demonstrates each stage of the dish. Emily will cover key skills, quick tips, information about the ingredients and origins of the dish.
  • The dishes you prepare are designed for two people and you will take these away at the end of the class along with the Get Cooking recipes. Don’t forget to bring large sealable containers!
What to bring?

Ingredients, an apron and copies of recipes are all provided.

You just need to bring a couple of your own large plastic containers to take away the dish(es) you make.
