Cooking session #5: Pasta Plus with Jay
Jay is the Hickson behind new Chorlton deli Hickson & Black's, where his colleague and co-founder Steve recently ran a Cooks On The Hop event. As part of the Pasta Plus cookery class on Tuesday 6 July at Chorlton High (6-9pm) of, if you prefer, Saturday 10 July at St Ninian's Hall (11am-2pm), Jay will be introducing you to some of the fabulous continental flavours on sale in the shop and helping you rustle up some Italian-inspired dishes. He'll teach you the secrets of a basic ragu, the essential tomatoey start to many a great pasta sauce, along with a traditional All'Amatriciana, with chillies and pancetta, and a vegetarian version of Putanesca, using olives and capers. You get to eat what you make, but don't forget to bring a container if you want to take some home with you!
All details on the June and July sessions, which cost just £15 for three hours (£10 concessions), are on the Cracking Good Food website here.
