New Course! Make your own Afternoon Tea – the Lincolnshire Way! 1st March
March 1 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm£85
Lincolnshire food isn’t just about sausages! On today’s course you will be making biscuits, bread and cakes! There are so many different baked goods to choose from and for each of these there are a large number of different recipes!
Take plum bread for example. I will be using a recipe I’ve adapted from one given to me at Heckington Windmill when I used to demonstrate bread making there – using flour from the mill and locally-made porter. I now often use Bateman’s Chocolate beer which is also great.
You’ll be baking some bread using flour from Maud Foster Mill including a beer bread using a Lincolnshire ale.
Recipes for a popular biscuit called Grantham Gingerbread biscuits (or balls) are many but I’ve combined the best of several recipes into one for today’s course.
From a little Lincolnshire recipe book of mine comes an interesting ‘Lincolnshire Potato Cheesecake’ which isn’t a cheesecake at all!
You’ll also be trying out a a great recipe from an 18th century recipe book entitled ‘Mistress Williamson’s Recipe Book for a Lincolnshire Country House’ – Seed cake which includes Madeira wine!
And finally, if there’s time, you will make some carrots buns from an old WW2 recipe.
Lunch will have a Lincolnshire theme of course and will be washing it down with Lincolnshire-produced wine.
At the end of the day there will be a demonstration of how to display all your goodies on a 2-tiered cake stand along with some local Poacher cheese and home-made jam.
