    Tapas and tails on a Friday evening has cheered us up so much over these past months. I love the informal atmosphere and it’s so nice to see the same faces as well as new participants from around the country all there enjoying the same thing. What we end up preparing is always so good too. It never fails to get our weekend off to a great start.

    A refreshing take on traditional brandade - definitely a recipe to keep for future reference.

    excellent class with a fabulous cocktail to match. love the way Tim includes everyone and is such a fountain of (sometimes random) knowledge. We've had a really tough few months, I'm sure we are not the only ones but this is an hour a week when we step into a different world, have a laugh, smile and make some tasty food, a delicious cocktail and learn some new skills. I would recommend to anyone.
