Food & Nightlife,
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Your experience begins by meeting your host Simon at his home before taking a short ten minute train ride together to Borough market. During your one hour market tour, walk through the many stalls heaped with fresh produce, cheese, gourmet food and beautiful patisseries. Hear stories of the the history of the market as you stop at a few stalls to sample food and purchase ingredients for your cooking class. After you have finished shopping for groceries you will make your way back to Simon's home. Simon has a fully operational kitchen which is perfect for a hands-on cooking class. During your 1-2 hour class you will learn to make two to three dishes from scratch, using seasonal ingredients. Simon will introduce you to the dishes that you will be preparing and the ingredients used. Then help him to wash, cut and prepare the meal that you will later share at the dining table.
