Riverford Masterveg Class @ The Avalon Centre - Glastonbury
12th February 2019

 DESCRIPTION
Looking for veg inspiration? These two-hour, hands-on cooking classes will give you ample veg inspiration – and the chance to see whether a Riverford veg box is for you.

Together we’ll turn a brimming box of veg, fresh from our farm, into an inspirational organic feast. You’ll get stuck in, learning lots of essential skills – such as the best way to slice greens and chop an onion, and how to make sure they never catch in the pan.

We hope you’ll leave inspired to cook with a veg box at home.

It’s very relaxed – people of all abilities are welcome, and we keep the classes small to give plenty of chance for questions and individual guidance. After the class, we’ll all sit down to enjoy the meal over a glass of organic wine or beer.

Places are £25, for the class, an organic supper and a drink.

Please note: You must be 18+ to attend a Master Veg class.

Date: Tuesday 12 February at 6pm
