Bar Opus says ‘Oui’ to French cooking lesson

Birmingham foodies are being given a unique opportunity to join two of the city’s best chefs for a series of hands-on cookery classes at Bar Opus at One Snowhill.

Kicking off the culinary masterclasses, head chef Gareth Wayt and chef director David Colcombe will be taking a practical lesson on how to source and cook the popular French-inspired dish  Bouillabaisse including how to prepare freshly-caught Brixham Bay fish and shellfish and locally-grown vegetables, as well as creating the perfect saffron turned potatoes to accompany the dish.

GarethBAR OPUS Chefs Gareth Wayt and David Colcombe pic 1, who has been a chef with the Opus family since the age of 21, said: “For some, Saturday mornings are often spent lying in bed watching cookery programmes, but this is the perfect chance for food lovers, diners, or anyone who wants to improve their cooking skills to join us in our kitchen and learn the techniques that we use.”

The hour-long masterclasses, which are being held on Saturday 7th and 21st February between 11am and 12pm, are followed by a two-course specially prepared Bar Opus lunch, and are priced at £25 per person all inclusive. The series will run alongside a number of cocktail masterclasses, starting on Saturday 31st January, in which bar manager Sam Cross will be teaching how to mix cocktails like a professional.

Spaces are strictly limited. To book a ticket call Bar Opus on 0121 289 3939.
