It was a packed house for our spicy vegetarian class and it was great to see such a range of ages getting cracking on a Saturday morning. Kate, who is one of the chefs at Jam Street Cafe on Upper Chorlton Road, led the session as 14 keen cooks and helpers got chopping and cooking, quickly filling the domestic science room at Chorlton High School with some lovely pungent smells from fresh herbs and spices.
Spicy bean burgers were made with cumin and coriander to pack a flavoursome punch, and these were complimented with a lip-smacking Romanesque sauce using roasted peppers, tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, delicious sweet hot smoked paprika, roasted almonds and homemade croutons. This was served with a vibrant salad for a healthy take on fast food that went down a treat around the table.
