The team at Recipease
Past event: September 2014
This September our favourite Italian friend, Gennaro Contaldo hosted a special cooking lesson at Recipease. Gennaro taught 14 lucky lesson participants how to rustle up some Italian comfort classics to celebrate the launch of Jamie’s latest book release – Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food.
Thanks to our brilliant lesson participants who rolled up their sleeves and got their Italian comfort food cook on!
"Just a quick note to say that we had an excellent time at Gennaro's lesson last night - thank you for putting it on! The lessons at Recipease are always great but last night's session went above and beyond. Gennaro was great fun and I'm sure his delicious recipes will be a staple part of our repertoires from now on - Fantastic stuff!"
We hope to see you again soon Gennaro! x
We asked our followers to Tweet @Recipease a pic of a fave comfort food to celebrate the launch of Jamie's new book and TV show, Comfort Food. Thank you for all the wonderful Tweets - it was so hard to pick the best, so we chose five winners!
Thanks for the Tweet, Samantha Duff:
We can't wait to see what our winners get cooking up from Comfort Food!
This competition closed on midnight 28th September.

Lisa, hen party, 2014
Just to say we had a fantastic time on Saturday night. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Chef was fabulous and the food was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better hen night.
Caro, Birthday party, 2014
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank the chef and staff for the most amazing evening on Friday. It was the most perfect start to a long evening and they really did above and beyond what was necessary for a very good party. How the chef managed to make herself heard above the banter and chit chat as the wine flowed I do not know. It was a great birthday event and such an unusual way to celebrate - everyone will remember my party as being different and so entertaining.
Spotify, team building, 2013
We had 3 fantastic group sessions with the chefs, and everyone enjoyed them so much they are asking when we can go back for more!

We have a new addition to our kids' lessons - Become a sushi master! Sushi is absolutely delicious, really healthy and great fun to make. It’s also much easier to make at home than you might expect! The kids will make a selection of veggie and tuna sushi rolls and then there'll be time at the end of for everyone to sit down together and tuck into their creations.
Back in August this year, two bloggers from Wanderlust and Bake attended a pasta making cookery class with Gennaro Contaldo. Here's a taster of what they had to say:
