Overview

The Mediterranean diet is one of the most highly regarded diets in the world and for good reason!

The cuisine is diverse and flavourful and focuses on using fresh, seasonal and top-quality ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, pulses, fish, and good oils. Our Mediterranean Table cooking class will take you on a journey across the Mediterranean, from France to Turkey, to introduce you to some of the region’s best dishes. Starting with the classic cuisine of France we will move on to tempt your taste buds with the varied flavours of Greece, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

 

Our expert tutor will guide you through the creation of well-balanced and healthy recipes, giving you the chance to learn to make a range of delicious dishes, including:

  • Marinated courgettes with walnuts and burrata
  • Soft flatbreads
  • Chicken shish kebab with garlic sauce
  • Cappadocia couscous
  • Turkish chilli sauce
  • Quick Pickles
  • Chilli pesto beans with halloumi
  • Prawns and potatoes in a garlic pimento sauce

Not only are these dishes packed with flavour. They are also highly nutritious and will broaden your gut diversity to improve your health and well-being!

Following a Mediterranean diet has a wide range of health benefits, including:

  • Improve Cognitive Function: The Mediterranean diet promotes healthy aging by promoting “good” gut bacteria. It reduces inflammation and contributes to good brain health.
  • Reduce Inflammatory Markers: The Mediterranean diet is rich in anti-inflammatory foods, such as vegetables, fruits, olive oil, nuts, and fish. It can help to reduce chronic inflammation and related health issues.
  • Good for Your Heart: The Mediterranean diet is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases than in many other countries. This is likely due to the high content of monounsaturated fat from olive oil which does not raise cholesterol levels like saturated and trans fats do.
  • Weight Loss: The Mediterranean diet encourages smaller portion sizes and emphasizes the importance of enjoying healthy and nutritious foods. This can lead to weight loss and a healthier body weight.
  • Good for Your Pocket: The Mediterranean diet is based on affordable and widely available ingredients like vegetables (onions, carrots, tomatoes, and cucumbers). Also, beans, legumes, pasta, and cheese. This makes it a budget-friendly option for a healthy diet.

Amazing teacher – great, useful skills were learnt. The delivery of the class was really impressive and the teacher was willing to answer all the questions we asked. I really enjoyed this  Mediterranean class – it was informal, very friendly and very well run.

Please contact us if you would like further guidance.

I can’t handle spicy food; will your classes be too hot for me?

In our cookery classes, you get to make your own food to suit your own palate, so although we provide guidelines, you can adapt each recipe to suit your taste, as spicy or as not spicy as you’d like.

Will I have food left over to take home with me?

Will I have my own cooker and cook my own recipes?

Yes, you will be cooking on your own hob and will be making the recipes individually tailored to your personal palate and preference.

I’m a complete beginner, what class should I do?

Our cookery classes are not based on skill as such; they are all hands on and taught by an expert chef who can lead you through the cooking processes so even a beginner should be fine on our classes. However, if you want to start at the very beginning, and develop an understanding of food hygiene, knife skills and safety in the kitchen, our beginner’s cookery class would be the one for you.
