Waitrose.com are offering 12 Mumsnetters (plus one guest each) a chance to attend a Michelin-star cookery masterclass at Waitrose Cookery School in London. They're looking for cooking enthusiasts who are interested in learning Michelin-star cookery skills from a professional chef and are keen to share their passion for food with like-minded Mumsnetters.

The event will take place on Saturday 12th May from 11am - 4pm at Waitrose Cookery School in North London. The venue is easy to get to using public transport (close to Finchley Road tube station on the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines).

Throughout the day Mumsnetters and their guests will be cooking a three course dinner party menu with all ingredients provided by Waitrose.com. Each course will be served in the dining room and you will have a chance to enjoy the menu you have prepared with a glass of wine specially selected to go with each course. The aim of the day is to inspire you to create your own Michelin-star-inspired dinner party menu!

The day will be filmed and the video will appear on Waitrose.com and possibly elsewhere. Please only apply if you're happy to be filmed. After the event you will be asked to leave written feedback on a thread on Mumsnet. Everyone who is selected to attend and adds their feedback on MN will be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 voucher for Waitrose.com.

If you would like to attend please sign up here. When signing up, please vote for the starter, main course and dessert you would most like to cook (and eat!) on the day. The three most popular dishes chosen by Mumsnetters who apply to go along will form the menu that attendees will be cooking on the day. Here's a few of the choices on offer to whet your appetite!

~ Roast scallops, potato gnocchi and truffle emulsion
~ Rack of lamb with braised peas, bacon, lettuce and mint. Dauphinoise potatoes
~ Inverted lemon tart, summer fruit salad and lemon yoghurt sorbet

Please let us know about all dietary requirements when you sign up to take part. As you'll see from the menu choices, all of the starters and main course options include meat or fish. If you're a vegetarian, apologies - this probably isn't the event for you, sorry.

Attendance is by invitation only - we'll be in touch with full details if you are selected.

Thanks and good luck

ripsishere Mon 16-Apr-12 16:35:54

D'ya fancy being me for the day then Shirty. I'll apply for the cooking thing - although like the Dame, I don't eat those things, and you have 28 screaming children at a party?

Done :-)
