The latest Kitchen Design Centre cooking Masterclass went off without a hitch this month as visitors to our beautiful Blackburn showroom were treated to a sumptuous selection of goodies, cooked right here in-house!
All of the tasty treats that our professional chefs and home economists cook up during our monthly cooking Masterclass are thought up by the gourmet minds at Neff. Better yet, all of the recipes are written with Neff’s range of compact kitchen appliances in mind .
This month, our talented host, Ann Reynolds used the Neff compact oven and combination microwave, plus the flex induction hob, to cook up more food than we thought possible! On the menu were mushroom paté with cheese on toast, sausages with a honey and mustard glaze, asparagus and leek frittata, oat and raisin cookies, chocolate brownies (recipe below!), plus scones, an apricot cake and a raspberry roulade.
Little wonder, then, that the event was attended by an enthusiastic crowd of cooking fans, all of whom got to sample the results of Ann’s labours at the end of the afternoon.
Our Neff cooking Masterclasses are more than just a brilliant chance to get up-close-and-personal with our cutting-edge kitchen appliances: everyone who attends a Masterclass gets entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a selection of Neff induction pans, worth £125.
Our latest cooking Masterclass was held in our gorgeously appointed Blackburn showroom, located off the Brownhill Roundabout and within easy reach of anywhere in the North West.
When it comes to designer kitchens, the lovely folks in the North West are in luck – we’ve got two more stunning showrooms right here in the region: one in Housing Units, Failsworth, Manchester and another on Regent Street, Colne.
So, no matter where you are in the North West, there’s a Kitchen Design Centre near you!
