Ashburton Cookery School

Mediterranean Plus

The Mediterranean diet - rich in grains, vegetables, pulses, fruit and nuts, with little meat, plenty of fish, and olive oil as the main fat - has long been adopted as a model of healthy eating.

But its real appeal is the sensual quality of the cooking, which is full of rich flavours, aromas and colours, as well as its simplicity.

Our Mediterranean Plus course explores the rich flavours, spices and cookery from Spain, Greece and Turkey and beyond. These exciting and subtle foods are simply wonderful and you can cook them again and again at home as they are as simple to prepare and make as they are delicious.
