Whether you find cooking a challenge, want to be better at it or love it and want to know more then you may just want to read on…
Steven Kitchen is possibly the best cookery school around. This one man cheffing machine not only helps you organise your own cookery lesson at your house, but he encourages you to create a menu, sources the very best ingredients then turns up on your door to help you cook it!
Perfect for dinner parties or just spending time with friends or family, Steven is the perfect guide for cookery heaven as we recently found out for ourselves. Steven recently, kindly agreed to run a cookery lesson for my family. Now, we`re not a family that spends days and weeks together, we`re all busy people and rarely get to meet 4 times a year as a unit, so I jumped at the chance of having Steven come and teach us something useful and at the same time get to spend some QT time with the family.
Before the actual day Steven contacts you to discuss what you want to cook. That`s right, anything you want, anything at all. This was a surprisingly difficult decision based on the fact that there is so much I`d love to learn to cook and posed with creating my own menu I simply couldn`t decide what to do… but this is where Steven really shows his class. I suggested Scallops, Venison and Chocolate over three courses and Steven went away to think about it. Within a few days he delivered three ideas that hit the mark no questions asked. Shell baked King Scallops with Goats Cheese and Chorizo was Steven`s starter suggestion, followed by Saddle of Venison Wellington (yum), polished off with a Chocolate fondant with Vanilla bean Ice Cream… feeling hungry?
Steven likes to come and meet with you prior to the event to see where we`d be operating as well as discuss the menu and required ingredients in a little more detail. However on this occasion time was short and distance was long so we had a Skype consultation, which lasted 30 mins. Steven took me through the proposed dishes and then prepared a detailed shopping list. If there is anything you can`t source, Steven is the man who can! What`s more, Steven consults his own wine expert as to the best wines to serve with each course, then provides the list before the event so as you can go and purchase yourself – a fantastic add on.
On the day, Steven arrived at around 1pm knowing that he`d have an audience who wanted to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in to all three dishes, cooking them from scratch. The meal we were preparing was our supper so we had a good 7 hours to get the show on the road.
Wow how time flies when you`re having fun, and boy, did we have lots of it. The entire family was encouraged to get involved (although you can relax and watch Steven at work if that`s what you prefer to do). The dishes came together beautifully and hats off to Steven for having the ability to manage 8 of us, all doing different parts of different dishes… whilst sharing some cheffing secrets!
As planned, everything came together for 8pm and I can honestly say that there wasn`t a crumb left on anyone`s plates. Delicious fine dining in the setting of your own home… now that`s an idea!
Huge thank you to Steven and please don`t hesitate to get in touch should you want a testimonial for this exceptional experience.
