Elevate your St George’s Day dinner with a virtual Masterclass from Michelin-starred chef James Mackenzie
Whether you’re a particularly patriotic foodie who wants to pay homage to the best of British grub, or you’re just looking for an excuse to brush up on your cooking skills and indulge in a three-course feast, Wellocks at Home have the perfect solution. Their new virtual masterclass will help you to upgrade the nation’s beloved roast courtesy of Michelin-starred chef James Mackenzie.
Though there’s a hopeful light at the end of the tunnel with regards to restaurant reopenings, many of us are keen to continue developing the home cooking skills learned over lockdown – and aspiring masterchefs can do just that with the latest instalment from Wellocks at Home, the nationwide premium ingredient delivery service from the suppliers to many of the UK’s Michelin-starred restaurants. Hosted by James MacKenzie, chef and owner of Michelin-starred Pipe and Glass in Beverley, East Yorkshire, participants of all cooking abilities will prepare and enjoy an exclusive three-course menu for two.
The masterclass, priced at £70 and accessed via wellocksathome.co.uk, features recipes from Pipe and Glass’s sensational seasonal menu and represents Mackenzie’s signature style of imaginative British cooking, using high quality local and seasonal produce to create hearty yet modern pub-style dishes. Ahead of the masterclass taking place, participants will receive a stunning box of high-quality, measured ingredients to create the fine-dining feast, and can work through the chef’s expert instructions by following the preparation and masterclass videos at their leisure over the experience weekend. £5 from each order goes to Wellocks at Home’s charity partner, Springboard’s FutureChef, which aims to inspire young people to explore food and cooking as a life skill.
