Our workshops are all about enjoying yourself and breaking rules – not fixating on technique and expertise, but appreciating the whole creative process and the eating. In our Fish Cook workshop, we teach you how to get to grips with the basics – the no-frills cooking of seafood without the need for fancy cookware to achieve effortless, delicious results. Alastair Hendy’s food is relaxed, informal and lively, and you’ll soon pick up many tips and fast ways with fish and vegetables that will revolutionise the way you shop, chop and cook.

Having styled over two decades’ worth of photo-shoots for many leading magazines and broadsheet newspapers, Alastair is a master of the dinner table and how to turn the simple into special. In our Food & Prop Styling workshop he will show you how flea-market finds or simple things found right on your doorstep will fire renewed inspiration and create magical tablescapes. Our workshop attests to his philosophy: the simplest of props in combination with bold and easy-to-make, delicious food is the surest way to make a stunningly seductive table.

Take a peep at our Instagram page (click here) and also Alastair Hendy’s own page (click here). Would you like to learn how to snap images as good as these? You can, and using just your phone. And you’ll also find out the secrets of how to make them as seductive, if you join one of our iPhone photography workshops. Social media has consumed our lives, and an Instagram, Blog or Facebook page that is centred around lifestyle – homes, interiors, food and travel – is now only as good as its images. Alastair has a wealth of information to share with you in our crash-course iPhone photography workshop, and you’ll leave enlightened and armed for social media standout – and be leaps-and-bounds ahead of the rest.
