Rocket Recipe: Japanese Dressings

Firstly, let's introduce you to Rocket Masterclass...

Over the past 5 months we’ve had so many wonderful clients and foodies requesting recipes and cooking tips while at home. But as we never half do things at Rocket, we decided to create our very own cooking show, with ingredients posted to Attendees, Rocket Masterclass!

Our brand new virtual cooking classes are the perfect way to elevate your cooking skills and enjoy an incredible Rocket dish all from the comfort of your own home. Cooking along live (or watching the recording later) with Rocket’s Exec Chef Ryan Stafford, you’ll learn his secrets for exceptional cookery without even needing to leave the house.

And it’s really not just about the class. We’ve delved into our little black book of suppliers to offer the best of the best, so that we can deliver our exclusive ingredients to you. Believe us when we say you can’t buy these in the supermarket!
