T&T - Aubergine and sheep cheese 'fritto' with a Daiquiri

Hosted by Tim MaddamsScotland

Friday 22nd January - 18:00


About this class

Tim is a celebrity chef​​,​ writer​​,​ cookery teacher and presenter who has recently relocated from Devon to Scotland. Tim led the team at River Cottage Axminster​​,​ where he regularly appeared alongside Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on both the River Cottage series on Channel 4 and the Fish Fight campaign. You will occasionally see Tim on various foodie shows​​,​ such as Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and BBC Food and Drink. Join Tim to celebrate our Friday evenings by marking the end of the week with a homemade cocktail and deliciously tasty snack. Tapas and 'tails is the perfect way to kickstart your weekend​​​​​​,​​​​​​ with an outstanding drink​​​​​​,​​​​​​ snack and some great foodie chat. This week we will create a tapa of Aubergine and sheep cheese 'fritto' with a Daiquiri cocktail. The Aubergine and sheep’s cheese “fritto” is a little Spanish dish Tim has loved for years​,​ you ideally want a fresh but hard sheep cheese. The simplicity of this classic cocktail is its joy​,​ but how it is served has changed over time​,​ originally​,​ it would have been served in a long glass and now is almost always served martini style…. Tim is going to go old fashioned and will also add a slice of chilli just to pep it up a little​,​ and a honey syrup rather than a sugar syrup just to make it a little more interesting.

What you will learn

We learn something new every week. Tim never fails to surprise and delight us with his insight​,​ knowledge and wisdom. These sessions are designed to share tips and tricks which bring simple​​​​,​​​​ seasonal and delicious food together and create a great Friday evening experience while still in the comfort of our own homes. You will walk away with techniques on how to combine ingredients to create a fresh and wonderful homemade snack and interesting new cocktail.

    Another fun evening learning a new dish - surprisingly a tasty tapas with aubergine - not my favourite vegetable but the cheesey nibbles turned out great! Another refreshing cocktail to add to my list of drinks.

    This works so well! I always like the idea of aubergine but never know what to do with them, so tasty, so simple when you know how! and perfect match to another exceptional cocktail 🍸. A fun evening as always with some new skills learnt whilst enjoying a fab cocktail, what's not to like!
