Last weekend Thornycroft hosted a retreat for 10 women students from 8th to 10th November. Here are some reflections on that weekend.
To accompany his lecture Dr Paul Shrimpton, provided us with the some thoughts and sayings from the writings of St John Henry Newman.
Because any time is a good time to think of healthy, speedy meals I am sharing with you a very popular fish dish which will be ready in 30 minutes. Pan-fried sea bass, served with a roasted ratatouille and sauce Vierge followed by salted chocolate & almond torte.
Mr Roy Peachey presented this lecture at the Visions of education conference in which he argued that we should be following the educational model outlined by Dorothy L Sayers in her essay, “The Lost Tools of Learning”. Like Newman, Sayers was a proponent of a Liberal Education.
Dr Paul Shrimpton presented this lecture at the Visions of education conference. He is an expert in the educational ideas and practice of St John Henry Newman. He was an integral part of the canonisation of St John Henry Newman, speaking at the Irish College in Rome and producing the exhibition on the saint, which he then guided Prince Charles around.
Seasonal cooking: “The Autumn menu” was the theme of our first Cookery class this term. Marinated mushroom with rosemary and feta served with crusty bread and caramelised pork fillets with sweet & sour sauce.
Michael Merrick presented this lecture at the Perennial Truths in a Time of Change Conference in 2019.
Autumnal recipe ideas for this time of year when we are still enjoying sunny evenings, but perhaps it is too chilly to eat al fresco, mother nature provides us with fresh, colourful and flavourful ingredients to produce fantastic dishes to enjoy indoors.
