Southampton Cookery School An Ideal Option For Hen Parties With A Twist

A Southampton-based cookery school is turning up the heat this summer and serving up a series of tantalisingly tasty new courses which put the fun back into hen does.

The jam packed new menu of Lemon & Soul Cookery School classes is the perfect alternative for brides to be underwhelmed at the thought of the racy clubs, raunchy strippers and rowdy drinking games that go hand in hand with conventional hen parties. A wonderfully appropriate option for all members of the bridal party, from grandmothers and aunties to best friends and flower girls, the classes are a day long event filled with fun, fabulous company and delicious food.

The new hen party with Lemon & Sole package is an easy and mouth-watering experience that can be enjoyed by everyone, both young and old. The organiser simply chooses an appetising theme and the rest is taken care of by the dedicated team of culinary experts who are on hand to deliver reliable and personal service with a smile. They will even supply the wine!

Cookery class themes include tapas, local and seasonal, pastry and baking, artisan breads, fish, meat, canapés, family dining and extravagant three course meals.

As well as being a fun and social wedding celebration, a Lemon & Soul cooking class teaches the bride invaluable married life skills that will help her on her way to becoming a culinary queen. As the age old saying goes, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!”   

Lemon & Soul recipes are hand selected to be not only delicious but to also teach participants a range of useful skills that they can take home and use in their own kitchens. It’s the hen night that just keeps on giving and will help transform any hen into a kitchen goddess.

Katarina Willingham, Lemon & Soul founder says “We are on a mission to inspire everyone from children to teen to adults to fall in love with cooking and appreciate good quality food.”

The private cookery parties begin with a refreshing coffee with the girls and then are packed with ingredient sourcing, preparation skills and a masterclass to help master the dish at hand. As with any good party, the day ends with a chance to fill up on delicious food and enjoy a glass or two of wine to kick the celebrations into high gear.

As well as hen parties Lemon & Soul Cookery School also offer classes for a wide range of students including corporate events, children’s parties, individual lessons, group sessions and family friendly cooking courses. Whatever the need Lemon & Sole offer a fun, fresh and tasty take on conventional cooking classes.

The Southampton based cookery school is the passionate business venture of Slovakian born food enthusiast, Katarina Willingham. Her love for cooking began in her home town of Bratislava and eventually saw Willingham join The Cook Academy to work alongside top chef, Kate Hughes. After completing formal training at Billingsgate Seafood School Willingham realised she had a gift for teaching which inspired her to found Lemon & Sole, an exciting new chapter in her culinary journey.
