A new cookbook from the writer, chef and illustrator Letitia Clark, Wild Figs and Fennel welcomes you to a year in Letitia's kitchen on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sardinia. In the book, Letitia delves into the jagged core of Sardinian cooking, inviting you to taste the flavors of each season.

Sardinian food is a distilled version of Italian food; each recipe in Wild Figs and Fennel celebrates this, emphasising the importance of cooking seasonally and locally. Eating well is a way of life in Sardinia. 

Wild Figs and Fennel features seasonal recipes that are perfect as we move from Spring into Summer, like golden and glistening Instant Ricotta Doughnuts with Saffron and Blood Orange, pillowy orbs of Wild Green Gnudi and Sage Butter, sweet and salty Fig, Gorgonzola and Fennel Flower Pizzette, and fuss-free yet wonderfully light Cherry and Mascarpone Custard Crostata with Olive Oil Pastry.

Letitia will be signing copies of her new book at the end of the class for you purchase & to take home and enjoy the full book of inspiring recipes. 

What's included:

  • Refreshments on arrival and available throughout the class
  • Tasters of the demonstrated dishes enjoy together as a class accompanied by a glass of wine or soft refreshments
  • 10% discount on purchases made in store on the day of your class, including cookery classes. Excludes books, food, electrical items, gift vouchers and sale items

We handle all types of ingredients in the kitchen at Divertimenti and we are not able to completely allergen free environment, our kitchen is multi-purpose therefore this makes our kitchen unsuitable for those with life- threatening allergies, in such cases as these we would suggest getting in touch with the team to arrange a private lesson in your own home with one of our chefs.
