Virtual lunch club launching soon

Posted by Guest on 19/05/20 in VfL News and Events

We might not be able to meet in person just yet, but why not join us for a virtual lunch club, running bi-weekly from Tuesday 26 May 1–2pm, via Zoom?

Learn some tasty new recipes, meet and socialise with others, and get some great cooking tips from Chef Alex.

If you're missing out on your hols or just fancy a taste of something different, try Alex's Paella recipe, followed by a tasty Apple Charlotte for pudding.

Cook it in the comfort of your own home on Tuesday 26 May, and then join us online to enjoy it, at 1pm. We can then chat about the recipe and all things cooking-related with Chef Alex.

Here's what you'll need to add to your shopping list or dig out of the cupboards:
