Small plates meant for sharing .

The hottest food trend at present also happens to be my favourite way to eat.  I often find myself ordering a selection of starters instead of an entrée or main course. This enduring trend coincides with our love affair with snacking and allows the diner to mix and match as they please. An appetiser can be a starter, a trio of little plates can make up a meal and provide the opportunity to try lots of dishes on the menu, something new and tempting, or even something scary that one may not have ordered before.  Small plates are also perfect for those who may have a concern about the price point without the potential of a wallet busting experience.

For chefs , small plates are an opportunity to experiment, to use small quantities of local, seasonal, even foraged ingredients. The concept has made dining out  more communal, less formal and more convivial .

In this half day course you will be inspired by a whole range of multi ethnic dishes and lots of hot new ideas for small plates meant for sharing.

It’s also a brilliant stress free way to entertain, show off your new skills and have lots of fun.
