Spring has finally arrived which means it’s time to say goodbye to heavy stews and hello to lighter, flavoursome meals. And with lots of tasty veg now back on the menu, we couldn’t resist celebrating with a big spring cooking event.

The cooking masterclass was hosted by TV cook and MasterChef winner Lisa Faulkner last week. And, it had a brilliant turnout from top food bloggers. The TV chef showed everyone how to rustle up a selection of yummy dishes that taste even better at this time of year.

Spring to it!

Lisa talked guests through a few of her favourite seasonal recipes, and gave a quick demo on how to make the super-healthy dishes. Guests then had a go making the recipes over the course of two fun cooking sessions.

Dishing up some flavour

First up on the menu was Lemon sole fillets en papillote, a delicious main that oozes a rich lemony flavour. To follow, bloggers tried their hand at Pineapple upside-down pudding, an old school British classic. The recipes went down a storm and got a big thumbs up at the evening feast.

Cooking you can really relish

The fantastic food event was held in partnership with Hotpoint, who make a whole range of stylish and intelligently designed kitchen appliances. Hotpoint let us use their Design Centre in central London, and guests got to cook all the dishes with Hotpoint’s handy OpenSpace ovens.

These genius ovens let you cook two different dishes at the same time in two separate compartments, each with separate controls. The kitchen appliances offer the flexibility of a double oven in a single space oven. So you can now roast a delicious Sunday lunch and bake a drool-worthy dessert, all at the same!

It's a wrap!

By 9.30pm all our guests were sufficiently stuffed, and it was time for everyone to head home. Each of the bloggers left with a signed copy of Lisa’s latest recipe book.
