Flower school and flower pizza
At the shop
It is a day for anybody who is interested in making table centres.
Whether you are a bride thinking about doing your own flowers, or just somebody that has a lot of dinner parties.
You will make 2 different arrangements in containers provided using two different construction methods. We will discuss the why and wherefores of each method, and the practicalities of providing flowers for an event / different shaped tables, and flower heights.
There will also be chat on linens and candles and other props, and I will also demo other ideas such as garlanding.
Morning coffee, cake, lunch, wine and afternoon tea are included in the price.

I am also addicted to yellow courgette and cauliflower pizza.
I have tried many of the recipes, most seem to involve adding a lot of cheese to the cauliflower, and others that involve microwaving and drying it out first, which is all a lot of hassle.
The Hemsley Hemsley method works perfectly every time.
1 egg white beaten
50g ground almonds
40g buckwheat flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
My "lazy" version
1 medium cauliflower
2 tablespoons ground almond
2 tablespoons buckwheat flour
1/2 teaspoon of bicarb and an extra bit for luck.
I can't be doing with separating eggs, or weighing out small grammage of things or having a leftover bit of cauliflower in the fridge.
In a food processor blitz the cauliflower until it looks like rice, add everything else, blitz a bit more.
Line a baking sheet, grease with olive oil or coconut oil and spoon some of the dough and with the back of a spoon spread it out into a base about 1/2 cm thick.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, at about 190 then flip over and bake for 5 more minutes.
I quite often use greek yoghurt as a base instead of tomato sauce, with leftover pork belly, ribbon of yellow courgette, a scattering of parsley and parmesan.
Bake for another 10 minutes.
