As London’s most sustainable cooking school, it goes without saying that all our private and team-building events are run with sustainable practices in mind. However, we’re now taking this one step further, with our sustainable event packages!
These new packages will see visitors create delicious dishes that minimise waste and use less meat, all while learning about sustainability concepts such as carbon footprints, sourcing ingredients and seasonality.
What does a sustainable event involve?
This new sustainable event runs in a similar way to our existing offering. Visitors are welcomed in with a glass of organic wine and nibbles before coming together to cook in teams. Depending on the package, you’ll create either three or four courses. While dishes are bubbling, braising or cooking away, we sit down to reveal the secrets of sustainability, explaining why concepts like sustainable fishing, proper food waste and plastic use is important.
Throughout the night, you’ll pick up tips and tricks that you can take into your everyday life, both at home and in the workplace.
Once everything is prepared, we’ll sit down to feast, enjoying all of your delicious food with a glass of organic wine. As always, all ingredients are organic and sustainable.
What will we cook?
Our launch menus cover three diverse and delicious cuisines – Middle Eastern, Italian and British. With the Middle Eastern menu, you’ll be whipping up the likes of whole-roasted cauliflower with tahini dressing and vegetable tagine with couscous, while the Italian menu includes dishes such as focaccia with olive oil, salt and rosemary and vegetarian Bolognese.
Should the British menu be up your alley, expect to create dishes like cheese and fresh herb bread and butter pudding and broccoli and kale salad with cider vinegar dressing.
Every sustainable event finishes with a dessert, showing that no matter your preference,
What will we learn about sustainability?
Sustainability is forever evolving as a concept, but there’s plenty to learn as a start. We’ll start by introducing the concept of a carbon footprint and the basic principles behind climate change. From there, it’s onto practicable actions you can take to reduce your impact, including how to choose ingredients based on travel and seasonality and how to limit food waste. You’ll walk away not only with a full belly and new dishes to try, but with a renewed understanding of the issue and feeling empowered to try something new.
