Tesco Real Food Jubilee Street Party Food Masterclass

I attended a fabulous Masterclass event last week in association with Tesco and Tesco Real Food.  Tesco Real Food Magazine is free instore and is packed with great recipes and tips.  The Masterclass involved us bloggers cooking tasty recipes suitable for a Street Party to celebrate the upcoming Jubilee.  The recipes we used, and many others, can be found in a special edition of Tesco Real Food Magazine.  If you can't find one instore you can read it online here.

The Masterclass was led by the lovely Rosalind from The Cookery School who was on hand to offer lots of tips, new shortcuts and techniques, loads of assistance as well as a couple of extra recipes and vegetarian options for all the recipes.  Rosalind was amazing and I would definitely recommend attending a course at The Cookery School should you need/want to. 

At the Masterclass all the bloggers in attendance were given a recipe to cook.  There were some bloggers who couldn't attend so we all ended up cooking our recipe then helping others finish preparing theirs.  It was a fab team effort!


Hard at work preparing the feast
 Kerry who blogs at Multiple Mummy cooked Chicken Tikka Drummers

Tara who blogs at Hanwell Nest made Coronation Coleslaw

Claire from Crumbs blog made not one but two Red, White and Blue Trifles

I made the English Breakfast Quiche

and Fleur who blogs at Homemade By Fleur made Three Pea and Wensleydale Salad

After we'd all cooked the delicious recipes we all got to eat them.  What a treat! There was so much food, and some wine, which was good because we all had seconds LOL

If you have your own fabulous Street Party Recipe then upload it to Customer Recipes of the Tesco Real Food website.  Anyone who uploads a recipe will go in the draw to win prizes including a weekend cookery course for two at Ashburton Cookery School.

Thank you so much to Tesco for asking me along to the event and to Rosalind at The Cookery School for providing invaluable assistance and a great venue.  I had a fabulous time, delicious meal and a good natter with other bloggers which is always a treat.
