Argentinian Asado Course at Philleigh Way

Saturday saw the first of this years series of Asado courses take place in glorious sunshine. We welcomed students from far and wide (including overseas) who enjoyed a relaxed day learning all about the Asado style of cooking from Asador David Deadman. Unique equipment is used during the course including our huge Parrilla (wood grill), Horno de Barro (wood oven), Asador Criollo (adjustable spit) and the most primal method Asador de la Cruz in which a whole beast is butterflied, fastened to an iron cross and cooked over an open fire.

Students were also shown how to make their own charcoal, enjoyed a hands-on session preparing their own empanadas (mini spicy pasties) and a delicious range of sides and salads and of course, enjoyed plenty of eating!

Great feedback was received from all of the days students including this lovely email from Henri of Truro –

“Hi Lindsey, David & George. I just wanted to say a big thank you for today’s amazing asado course. I absolutely loved it and will be raving about Philleigh Way (even more than I already do) to all my foodie friends! I really enjoyed it and think that you’ve absolutely nailed it with your brilliant set-up there. David, you were a great and inspiring teacher &  I’ve definitely gleaned some very helpful tips from you…I will be in touch soon. Looking forward to learning some Indian BBQ techniques next…! See you soon. Henri.”

We have two more Asado courses coming up led by Asador David Deadman of Sizzle Grills which are taking place on Saturday 21st and Saturday 8th September. Spaces are limited so don’t miss out on this fantastic day.
