Earlier this year, Farrington’s Mellow Yellow cold pressed rapeseed oil was selected as a partner to Michel Roux Jr’s Cookery School, located at Cactus Kitchens in central London, which offers an array of unique and intimate cooking experiences.  The cookery school has used Farrington’s Mellow Yellow since it opened its doors in 2013.

Cold pressed rapeseed oil continues to grow in popularity and is much loved by chefs and home cooks alike who appreciate its culinary and health properties.  Visitors to Michel Roux Jr’s Cookery School can enjoy using this British produced cooking oil in full-day experiences with Michel, as well as his protégé – senior Sous Chef Monica Galetti, and during technique based classes taught by his Head Chefs.

Anna Ratcliffe, Director at Cactus Kitchens, said “Here at our cookery school we love the quality of Farrington’s cold pressed rapeseed oil and are very proud to be associated with such a fantastic family business and brand. It’s great to be able to showcase such a wonderful product to our customers.”

In November, Eli Farrington was invited to join Michel Roux Jr in a masterclass with the Michel Star chef himself. Eli enjoyed a fantastic day and created a number of dishes under the watchful eye of Michel.  Here is a full list of the recipes she created:-

Poached Scallops with Leeks and Smoked Salmon
