Students will receive expert tuition in the ancient art of preserving and pickling. With homemade jams, chutneys and preserves now more popular than ever and with more and more people wishing to learn how to cook, this hands-on course, will arm students with the skills necessary to prepare a wide range of preserves using a variety of freshly picked seasonal fruit and vegetables. Preserves that may be made on the day include Kea plum jam, apple cheese, crab apple jelly and much more.
Cupcakes for CoppaFeel!
Do your bit for charity and learn how to bake delicious cupcakes at the same time on Philleigh Ways Cupcakes for CoppaFeel! course. All proceeds from the course will be donated to the fantastic charity CoppaFeel! a breast cancer charity dedicated to educating young people about the importance of checking their breasts in order to catch breast cancer early. Charity founder Kris Hallenga noticed a lump in her breast aged 22 and was initially told by her doctor she was far too young to develop the disease. When she finally obtained a correct diagnosis 8 months later, Kris found out she had stage 4 breast cancer, there is no stage 5. Kris along with her twin sister Maren started CoppaFeel! just one month after Kris was diagnosed and since then, the charity has become a driving force in educating young people via schools, universities and festivals. Philleigh Way became aware of the charity after hosting twin sister Maren's hen party at the Cookery School. Philleigh Way was so impressed after hearing about the charity's work, especially Kris's determination to make a difference and raise awareness of the disease in young people (which no other breast cancer charity is dedicated to doing), they decided to invite CoppaFeel! to be their chosen charity for 2016. Knowing Kris and Maren had a love of all things cake related; it seemed fitting for Philleigh Way to donate all profits from their cupcake courses to the charity.
During the course students will bake a delicious range of cupcakes as well as producing their own handmade decorations which will see them mastering a variety skills including sugar-craft under the guidance of tutor Christine Hawker. Students will be being given the option of making some 'boobie' themed decorations to adorn their cupcakes which will be photographed with the best design being chosen by Kris. The Cupcakes for CoppaFeel! Course takes place on Wednesday 5th October.
