Join us as we make shortbread together in the comfort of our own kitchens. The simple recipe is easily adaptable for vegans or those who are gluten intolerant.
We have allowed an hour for the cookalong which will give us plenty of time for cooking and we can eat our freshly prepared shortbread together afterwards. This will give us an opportunity to chat and get to know one another. If you have children with you, they could come along and help you.
You will need to have your phone, tablet or computer in the kitchen with you, so that you can access the Zoom meeting and join in with the cooking and conversation. The recipe we will be using is a straightforward but delicious one, which is easy to follow and virtually foolproof. Of course if you are experienced with making shortbread, you can use your own variations and pass on your own ideas on the day.
The ingredients to make the shortbread are below so you can have everything to hand before we start. If you don't have all the spices, you can simply make a plain version. The full recipe will be sent out with the Zoom link once you have registered your attendance to: firstname.lastname@example.org
