Fun In The Kitchen

The Pumpkin Patch cookery and gardening classes have been 'back to normal' for the past couple of weeks. We are now in our third week of regular classes and we're all getting back into the routine!

As expected, the children went back to school and the weather improved, but at least it meant that we could get some gardening done, as well as go blackberry picking!   We've had fun walking and running through fields, climbing over gates and stiles, and shooing away the cows as we pick our hedgerow treats!

The children made some lovely blackberry, plum and apple crunch which was berry nice indeed! It didn't last long in our house, especially served with thick golden custard :) Mmm!


This week at The Pumpkin Patch we have the regular Junior and Secondary age classes held at Allt y Gรดg Farm. This week, these classes are available:

         Saturday Morning    10am - 12noon Pumpkin Patch Juniors £10
         Monday Evening 6pm - 8pm    Pumpkin Patch Teens £14

If you'd like some inspiration about what to cook for supper or what to do with a butternut squash..... I'll be cooking a great squash and coconut stew on
 S4C's Prynhawn Da this Friday 21st September at 2pm
Dessert will be the best ever chocolate brownies (and we really have tried a few!!)

Next Tuesday 25th I will be presenting a cookery course in Broad Haven, Pembrokeshire. This is day designed to inspire and enthuse anyone catering for visitors and guests on a regular basis. 
The focus will be on “light bites” which could be used and modified to suit any meal time, including packed lunches, which can be a bit of a bother! 

Hope to see you soon,  Lisa x
