The ALBOS team have been cooking up a storm on the first day of the 2017 Stone Food & Drink Festival.
Beth walked us through the decorating step by step, sharing tricks of the trade along the way to help us fashion our magical animals.
There were lots of laughs, a lot of mistakes, and a few swear words, but we all came away with cupcakes resembling our mythical creatures!
Next up was the iCookIndian Bombay Potato Frankie class. Amarpal took us through all the spices, showing them to us in their raw form, even letting us taste them, it was a fascinating insight into Indian spice & culture.
Along with the Bombay Potato Frankie, we also learned how to make paratha bread, which, as people who LOVE to experiment with cooking Indian food, was a revelation! Why had we not done this before! The potatoes were the perfect balance of spice and heat, and the paratha complimented them beautifully, we brought our creations home and had the tastiest supper we’ve had in a very long time. On top of the gorgeous food and interesting info, Amarpal and his assistant were patient and kind, the perfect teachers.
We would recommend both classes highly. If you have the chance to catch a class, there are a few spaces left for them while they’re at the Food Festival, you can book them here, and you can find Festival information and tickets on their website.
Saturday and Sunday also sees the Little Foodies Zone open for business. There are FREE cookery classes, circus skills sessions and arts and crafts sessions for a small fee. If you’ve got little ones then there’s lots to keep them occupied this weekend!
