Gastronomy is the study of the relationship between food and culture, art of preparing and serving rich or delicate and appetizing food, a style of cooking from particular region and the science of good eating.
The term ‘Gastropub’ can be traced back to early 1990’s London, when the Eagle pub in Farringdon was taken over by two young budding restaurateurs, who were tired of pretentious restaurants. They set out to serve high quality comfort food in a casual setting, think French bistro meets British pub.

Today there are many gastropubs around the world, the best of which serve locally sourced, seasonal products, and sustainable heritage breeds. Now foodies are flocking to the British countryside to experience destination gastropubs.

In this class we will create great comfort food with a gourmet spin, such as, Bloody Mary shrimp, Curried parsnip and apple soup, Baked Camembert en croute with dried fruit chutney, Crispy skate wings with cauliflower, bacon and capers, Duck breast with apple, cranberry, bread salad, Smoked fish cassoulet with cheese and mustard crust, Beet and walnut brownies with creme fraiche ice cream and Meyer lemon bread and butter pudding.
