[The First Days of School]

The doors to School are officially open! 

We've now hosted our very first classes and are busy planning the schedule for the months to come.  Chef Marcelo de Campos has been busy leading his Seasonal Apple Workshop (there are more to come throughout October), while Annette Joseph, the American stylist, photographer and cookbook author, arrived to give our first Masterclass on opening night. She imparted her wisdom on how to make entertaining at home as painless as possible and showed us a few easy tricks for creating a stunning table for a dinner party—everything from flowers, to table decorations, to an impressive no-bake dessert.  

Below, a peek inside School's first days. There are many more series of new and exciting classes to come in the next weeks and months: Keep up with the exciting schedule of events here, at the shop and on our events page.  

[Scenes from the Seasonal Apple Workshop]

Marcelo's workshop continues to be a huge success, with fun times had by all. The good news is that for those of you that haven't made it quite yet, there are still a few more sessions left this month. You'll learn how to make a healthy juice (an ideal breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up), a light and satisfying salad, and a truly perfect Tarte Tatin.  

[What You'll Learn]

1. When it comes to Tarte Tatin, you have to give in...
to the butter and the sugar.  
You will be shocked, but it is oh, so worth it.

2. As for our Apple, Beetroot & Goat Cheese Salad, let the walnuts marinate in olive oil to extract flavours, and the apples in vinegar, as they go so well. Then mix them all together.   

Come to the Seasonal Apple Workshops and pick up a few essential skills for yourself.

A little of 
[What We Learned]

1. Annette showed us how to set a stunning table. Her top tip is to save yourself some stress by setting your table a couple of days in advance—the flowers actually look better after a day or two.  

2. For the Centrepiece: Pick about 5 different varieties of flowers and greenery to work with.  Starting with the greenery and going from the largest variety to smallest, place inside your vase, remembering to pay attention to all sides as this is a centrepiece. Now, do the same with the flowers, starting with the largest variety, moving on to the smallest.  Finish off with a couple large stems leaning toward one side.  Don't be afraid to use an unusual container: Annette used our champagne bucket as a vase.

3. Annette showed us how you can create a pretty vase or place-card holder using a regular water glass. Cut a strip of wrapping paper to the height and circumference of the glass, punch holes in the paper in a simple pattern, and stick to the glass.  Wrap with a pretty ribbon or raffia.  (This easy-to-make decoration is also a great way to get the kids involved in setting the table.)
