Regional Tuscan Cookery Course / 8th Feb, 2014

Posted in Food Places, Kitchen News with tags , , , on February 6th, 2014 by liberatethelasagna

We are looking forward to our cookery course this weekend at the beautiful Tyringham Hall. Tyringham Hall is a private manor house in our village, Cuddington in Buckinghamshire. The cookery course takes places in the kitchens and then we will be eating the product of our labour in the dining room (in the Summer we will be able to visit the gardens)…

We will be next at Tyringham Hall on the 29th March for our Quattro Pasta Making Cookery Course, lots of delicious sauces and pasta. In between we will be visiting Dadbrook Gallery again and then back to the CiCi CoCo Kitchen…

For more details on any of our cookery course please e-mail thecook@cici-coco.com

‘Her skill has been passed down her family

(half from the North, half from the South of Italy),

and she cooks with the warmth and informality

of a home meal with friends in mind.’

Creamed New Forest Sarum (a delicious cheese!) sauce with walnut pesto and local Bucks honey.
Butter, sage and poppy seed sauce.

We are proud to say that we won ‘Best Independent Producer’ in the Muddy Stiletto Award 2013. There was some stiff competition not least from many producers who we know from our involvement with the ‘Vale Harvest Food Group‘ and our monthly markets. It was a battle to the finish but we finally won. Thank you to everyone who voted for us… we are thrilled.
