As well as the start of summer and the four-day Jubilee weekend, June brings some exciting events with some of our fantastic friends!
Boutique baker and cupcake artiste Peggy Porschen will be running a baking masterclass at Lydia Booth’s cookery school in Blackrock, Dublin. If you’re an aspiring Irish baker, there’s no one better to learn from than Peggy. She’ll be showing how to make your own treats that are as pretty as they are delicious on Wednesday the 6th June from 18:45-21:00
Visitors to the BBC Good Food Show will be in for a treat as Reza Mahammad, the King of Spice will be there signing copies of his new book Reza’s Indian Spice and hopefully sharing the spicy secrets that have made the Star of India an award-winning restaurant for over 50 years. The show runs from the 13th to the 17th of June at Birmingham’s NEC, and Reza’s signing takes place at 13:45 on Saturday the 16th.
If just getting your book signed isn’t enough, you can head to Books for Cooks in Notting Hill, where Reza will be running a workshop on rice dishes. To see this expert in action and enjoy tasting his creations, be sure to book your spot. Reza’s workshop will be on Thursday the 28th of June at 11:00
Michelin-starred seafood chef Nathan Outlaw will be at Waterstone’s in Truro at a signing of his new book Nathan Outlaw’s British Seafood. This collection of recipes is full of tantalising photos shot on location in Cornwall, so this event should not be missed by any South-West seafood lovers! The event is at 12:00 on Saturday the 16th June.
Two Quadrille favourites will be bringing their magic to this year’s Taste London Festival: Atul Kochhar and Jason Atherton. Atul will be showcasing the skills that made him the first ever Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin star in the AEG Taste Theatre on Saturday 23rd June between 13:30-14:00. Gordon Ramsay protégé and author of Gourmet Food for a Fiver will also be demonstrating at the festival, date and time TBA.
