'I have just spent a lovely time at L'ortolan in Shinfield in the company of some very keen amateur chefs. We started the morning with coffee and pastries and then were led upstairs to the chefs demonstration kitchen where we had an entertaining time with the Executive Chef who showed us how to cook sea bream and handy hints with other cuts of meat. Then a delicious and oh so simple soufflé, where the chef took it upon himself to demystify all our preconceptions on the delicacy of a soufflé by banging the ramekin dishes and continually opening the oven door throughout the cooking time. After our demonstration we had champagne and canapés in the glass room and were then led to our table where we all had a wonderful selection of courses and were waited on very attentively. It was a lovely way to spend a day with some genuinely friendly people who were as keen to sample everything on their dishes as I was.' Nicola T, Sep 2010
