Kick any culinary ruts out of the kitchen with award-winning food writer Angela Clutton, as she prepares a springtime feast of dishes from her latest book, Seasoning.

Angela will be showing how seasonal produce can be maximised in the kitchen time and time again with ideas on different ways to use spring vegetables, fruits, fish, meat and dairy; their flavour partners, and preserving tips. Discover with Angela the vital role that shopping, cooking and eating seasonally plays in sustainability, and the joy that comes from letting the rhythms of the seasons into your kitchen through the year.

Angela will be cooking (and you will be eating):

- Asparagus, hot smoked trout and pea shoot tart

- Frisée, new potato and radish salad

- Elderflower madeleines with gin-poached gooseberries

With a glass of Sherry, elderflower and orange blossom collins (or soft alternative).
