£65 Gnocchi Cooking Class for Teens with Lunch
Sun, 12 Apr 2020

Gnocchi Cooking Class for Teens with Lunch

Cooking Lesson - Union Street Cafe

Get your kids in the kitchen with this special cooking class for teens where they’ll learn how to master the perfect, fluffy gnocchi recipe from our chefs at Union Street Café.

Aimed at teens aged 13-17, our chefs will guide them through a 90-minute cooking class that will see them getting hands-on in the kitchen, making rolling and shaping their own gnocchi dough, followed by an ice cream and sorbet making demonstration. If this doesn’t make them want to get cooking at home, we’re not sure what will!

The class starts at 10am with a tour of the restaurant and kitchen, followed by the interactive class in one of our private dining areas. Once the gnocchi is cooked, the group will sit down to share a delicious three-course feast for lunch, with Italian-style mocktails, assaggini (starters and nibbles) then the fresh gnocchi with sauces, and of course, ice cream for dessert.

Parents and guardians are welcome to join their budding chefs for lunch (and test their efforts!) and everyone will take away the gnocchi recipe from the day, ready to recreate at home time and time again.

The experience runs 10am - 2.30pm and tickets cost £65 per person, with additional lunch guests (parent or guardian) £30 per person. Purchase a gift voucher for the class using the link below.

Tales from the Kitchen Library - Chris Galvin & Mark Hix

Special Dinner - Tramshed

Mark Hix’s Tales From The Kitchen Library creates a year of unmissable kitchen collaborations bringing together some of the UK’s most formidable chefs and restaurateurs from Rick Stein to Ollie Dabbous.

Tales from The Kitchen Library is an opportunity not only to watch some outstanding chefs in action, but also to share a relaxed and intimate evening with Mark Hix and his friends sharing stories of their life in food whilst also demonstrating and cooking a four course menu in the intimate setting in Mark’s Kitchen Library – think of it as a dinner party hosted by some of the most exceptional names in food.

Chris teamed up with his brother Jeff in 2005 to open their first solo venture, the eponymous Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in Baker Street, to much critical acclaim and many awards. Since then, their collection of restaurants now include Galvin at Windows, Galvin La Chapelle, Galvin HOP, Galvin at The Athenaeum and Galvin Green Man in Essex. The Gavin’s have also recently open Galvin at Tottenham, four luxury restaurants in the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Join Mark and Chris Galvin for a night to remember with food cooked by Mark and Chris in this unique venue.
