We have a great team of chefs on board with warm and friendly front of house staff. So if you’re out shopping and fancy a light snack or are looking for something a little more special come and try one of Llandudno’s best restaurants. From healthy salads to naughty treats, tagines, Persian rice, choux pastry and other delicacies there is no limit to what you can learn with Fabienne.

Then you can sit down and enjoy sharing the meal with family and friends – just the way they do it in Italy. One of the biggest limitations we found is differences in equipment. Recreating breads proved to be a particularly tricky task when working with a domestic oven. The searing heat of the tandoor allows a restaurant naan to cook very quickly so it stays beautiful and soft while getting that deep, smoky flavour.

I have had many a long drive to meet a supplier who makes just one cheese, but those trips have been some of the most inspiring moments for the business.

Time really is the universal, invisible ingredient in cooking. Using the right amount of time is key to a dish’s success. Some ingredients are all too easy to overcook – eggs, fish and pasta all leap to mind; an eye on the clock and precision are required for these. Other foods like home-made mayonnaise call for patience and not rushing. Cuts of meat such as ox cheeks or lamb shanks require long, slow, gentle cooking to transform the connective tissues and collagen into gelatine, adding a succulent richness. And time, of course, plays a vital transformative part in creating flavour during the process of creating fermented foods and drinks.

Also a very big thank you for quickly making up a vegan dish for Simon. We were so pleased to see him we forgave him not mentioning his dietary needs. I always think about whether my readers can find the ingredients in the UK, as well as how to adapt the recipes to their preference. For example, in Thailand, we often use very fishy ingredients like fermented fish paste. It’s definitely an acquired taste, so I mark these ingredients as optional.


The social, emotional wellbeing of students is at the heart of Home Cooking Skills. The curriculum is designed to engage, enthuse and motivate students to develop a love of food, whilst promoting confidence and skills for life and independent living. Students develop these skills, techniques and processes across a variety of recipes whilst being taught to work safely and hygienically in the kitchen. They will also develop and strengthen their gross motor skills and improve their dexterity of fine motor skills. Our great tasting Little Mealmakers home cooking range, has been specifically developed to make preparing your baby’s favourite homemade recipes easy.
