It’s been a busy start to November for our hosts. From Waitrose pop ups and MasterChef suppers to bonfire biryanis and more! We’ve started the new season doing what we do best – sharing food!
This week amongst the many exciting events taking place across the country, Philleigh Way Cookery School teacher and ex-professional rugby player, Rupert Cooper popped up at Waitrose in Truro to deliver an evening of culinary splendour!
