Better Barbecuing at Philleigh Way
This course opens up a world of possibilities on your barbecue. As well as covering of key skills such as lighting and temperature control, you’ll be learning how to perfect steaks, roasts, fish and pizzas!
Suitable for those who want to learn to cook food other than the standard barbecue fare, our BBQ course shows how to use a “lid-on” barbecue technique to grill, roast, smoke and bake! During the 4 1/2 hours you and your classmates will prepare a variety of different dishes under the guidance of our own expert BBQ chef. Using a combination of charcoal and gas barbecues you’ll be taught skills from lighting techniques to controlling temperature and knowing when your food is perfectly cooked. You’ll receive a demonstration from the chef on how to cook the perfect steak and we’ll ask you to get hands-on with some dough and create your own stone baked pizza!
