    About this class

    In this class

    What happens when you press pause on your busy life and take a little time to taste in the moment? This is what you'll discover at a Food At Heart workshop.

    The Joy Of Salad celebrates delicious seasonal vegetables, and the exciting and tasty ways you can use them to make nourishing dishes. Want to know what happens during The Joy Of Salad?

    You'll take part in reflective tasting and have the chance to experiment with summer flavours and textures. This includes a creating refreshing chilled soup which we'll design together and enjoy as a starter dish.

    You'll then join forces with fellow participants to 'invent' delicious meat-free dishes using seasonal ingredients. It's a little like MasterChef's Invention Test - but no judging, just tasting!

    We'll begin with a set of key ingredients and a starter recipe, with your choice of lots of seasonings and flavourings to add. You'll also have the chance to decorate your salads with edible flowers and seasonal salad leaves. You can let your food and flavour imagination run wild!

    The Joy Of Salad finishes with a shared meal of the flavour-filled dishes you've created.

    Now you can

    • Use the techniques learnt during the class to serve up hearty and delicious meals at home
    • Feel comfortable experimenting with different flavours and combinations
    • Pass on your new techniques and skills to friends and family

    What's included?

    The class will end with a shared meal between the students as everyone tucks into their flavourful creations. There is always a surprise gift to take away at the end of the class.

    Fun fact

    Everyone loves a bowl/mug of soup, right? We certainly think so. Yet, it would seem that some have more of an affinity with this warming meal than others. When asked why he painted the iconic soup cans, Andy Warhole replied: "I used to have the same (Campbell's soup) lunch every day for 20 years." I rest my case

    Meredith Whitely created Food At Heart for people with a real interest in food, but who also want to foster a more conscious way of eating and living. She helps people eat in a more connected, mindful and delicious way.

    Food At Heart offers invaluable lessons in how to get the most out of food and tasting, including how to enjoy cooking and creating delicious meals. Classes involve all the senses and explore how you can use this sensory understanding to taste more and cook better.

    Meredith is passionate about the type of food we eat, whether it’s delicious dark chocolate or nourishing organic salads. She believes that people should enjoy eating well, with a focus on how to make whole and unprocessed foods taste truly wonderful.

    Food At Heart workshops give students the opportunity to explore and experiment with interesting flavour combinations. The sessions bring together a healthy mixture of fun and focus. Students learn to approach food and cooking with creativity, in all its different guises, varieties and combinations, as opposed to exactly following recipes to the word.

    Food At Heart events also place much emphasis on the sustainable elements of cooking, using seasonal and organic ingredients wherever possible, with remarkable outcomes!
