A new collaboration with Steve Brown of 'we are POP'.

Having spent over 20 years working with food, Steve has come to see the kitchen as a transformative place. Time in Scotland, the South of France, London, New York and Daylesford in the Cotswolds have all shaped Steve’s understanding of food being at its best whilst being in keeping with its surroundings; a beautiful piece of fish by the sea, or handmade pasta on an Italian hillside.

In this introductory session, you will explore culinary mindfulness and learn how to elevate natural, seasonal ingredients with thoughtfully-chosen, carefully-prepared menus. You will create balanced, flavoursome dishes with a real sense of place. Join us to turn the daily grind into a more mindful process and leave with lots of new ideas and skills.
