Pixels & Palates at Cooks Academy

F_ImageI recently had the pleasure of attending a fantastic event in Cooks Academy called Pixels and Palates.  It was a brilliant fusion of food and technology.  They are celebrating 10 years of turning the nation into confidant cooks.  I spent a week with  them myself so can certainly vouch for their expertise. I’m now a master of filleting a fish.  You can read about  my experience here.

They have very kindly given me a discount code which you can use to book any of their short courses. A whopping 20% off!!!!!!!  The offer is valid for all courses booked up to 31st of March 2015. The course itself can take place after this date provided its booked in advance.  The code to use is eatdri365 and you can use it for online bookings or quote it over the phone if making a booking that way.

A full list of the short courses can be found here and there is something for everyone.

The evening itself was really great fun and I had the chance to meet many fellow bloggers from the worlds of food and social media.  We were fed and watered to within an inch of our life and they also had a great competition on the night to win a one month cookery course (valued at ‚ā¨2,950). The task was to turn some turkey and ham based dishes into a credible portion of street food. There were some great creations I have to say.  Here is mine.


I called it Christmas Summer

Alas I didn’t win the prize but it was great fun taking part.  The winner created a festive nativity scene out of food.

The owners of Nobo  Rachel and Brian who produce dairy and gluten free ice cream gave us a fascinating insight into their business and of course samples to taste. Delicious.  You can find them in your local SuperValu.

There was also a Molecular Gastronomy Taste Test which I failed miserably at. It was a great night from Cooks Academy and I look forward to many more, and of course trying some more of their courses.

My horrendous guesses but I got two right (I think)
