Themed evenings…


What better way to cheer up the winter months than with themed evenings?  A geographical theme perhaps, such as Indonesian, Mexican or Moroccan themed evenings?   Or we could spend an night working on dishes specifically aimed at entertaining.  Alternatively we can organise  a course on Canapés & Fingerfood for drinks parties, or try our hand at some comforting and classic BISTRO Cooking..
