Now more about the workshop:

The Live Cooking Asado Day is £100 pp this includes Breakfast Lunch and a Feast for Dinner.

There will be Plenty of fire, more than too much meat and more laughs than a bag of jokers, all washed down with a cider or two. Get involved as much as you can or sit back and just enjoy your day and the feasts that will ensue.

Its an asado – thats what its all about, enjoying ourselves, the setting and the company.

On a typical day we will cover:

  • Woods and the different impact they can have on the end results

  • How to judge temperature and harness this skill and utilise it
  • How to use transferable skills to take away with you
