A Taste of Italy | Sept 26th | £60

Thursday 7.00pm- 9.30pm | Led by Jonathan Williams

Vaughan's Cookery School is delighted to welcome a new guest tutor.  Jonathan Williams is a highly qualifed and experienced chef who is passionate about Italian food. He has travelled extensively in the country, picking up tips and recipes along the way.  The dishes appear to be simple and use a range of quality ingredients but, knowing the tips and techniques are what transform these two elements into an amazing meal.  The contrast in regionality from Venice to Tuscany, the Amalfi coast, Sorrento, Naples, Rome etc, each one with their own signature dishes, he finds fascinating.

As Executive Head Chef of Bath Racecourse, Jonathan has an imaginative and creative flair with a unique style of presentation.
